Why is this jacket so much cheaper than the rest of the pro shells? makes me question performance and durability..
Hey Evan, I wouldn't use that as a determiner for durability... it still falls into the $400+ range... its just on sale!
Evan, OR overbuilds its products, and then backs them with an "Infinite Guaranty," which no other vendor does. It's full Gore ProShell, 40D body and 70D shoulders for added durability. I own one. It is awesome. I LOVE the "torsoflo" concept which opens up the jacket to vent either from the hem or from the pit, giving your heat a very easy place to dump.
This is a SCREAMING DEAL because its last year's color and they want to move it out. You should snag it before everyone else does!
Really, the question to ask is why other companies are charging so much for Pro Shells! OR gear is well designed and bomber, at way better prices then their competitors. Also it is backed with "Infinite Guaranty". Swoop this deal while it lasts!
