Hi Hans,

Here is Nikwax's official statement on the matter: Nikwax guarantees the performance of all its products for 4 years. Every bottle is marked with the date of manufacture. An older product will not harm your garment.

Back to Wayne - Basically all that means is past the expiration date the solution may just lose its potency. It doesn't become dangerous to use. Maybe test it out before you head out and see how it handles.

Hey Hamish,

Height and weight are greatly effected by the lower half of your body and since your legs have nothing to do with how a jacket fits its best to decide size based on your chest measurement and sleeve length.

If you can get those specs it would be a lot easier to help you to decide between sizes. Or if you would like you could compare your information against the size chart.

Hey CarriAnn,

You are correct in assuming that this no longer comes with a shoulder strap, in fact it hasn't for a couple year now. I double checked on that video and it looks like it was made back in 2012 towards the end of the era when it was still included. I want to say beck then it might have even came with that frisbee show.

Hey Kristina,

These tights are considered thermal for running but it doesn't really take much of a layer to keep warm when you run. If you were these to a Friday night football game and your sitting around then you are probably going to get a little chilly.

Bottom line is I would recommend these for winter running.

The face fabric of your gloves might not be fully waterproof but the Gore-Tex liner is so your fingers shouldn't be getting wet from outside moisture. If you do want to make that face fabric waterproof this Glove Proof should work fine.

MontBell does have kinda a funky fit that is normally a little shorter in length but I think it will actually be beneficial to your body type. At a 41 inch chest I am pretty hesitant to suggest sizing up to an XL unless you plan on getting more jacked. If you are maintaining your weight class stick with the size Large for now.

Those base specs you and I have a similar build and I would pick up a medium if I sized up. I always suggest however getting your chest and sleeve measurement to get a better idea how a jacket will fit since the lower half of your body has nothing to do with how a jacket will fit but effects your height and weight pretty drastically.

Hey Edie,

You will need to have Thule Crossbars for the Hullavator to work which means you will probably have to get a few additional parts.

Unfortunately for this product factory installed crossbar wont cut it.

If you click the Car Rack configurator on the left panel of this page it will help guide you to the parts you will need otherwise give us a call and we get get it put together for you.

Since your legs attribute a lot to your height and mass but have nothing to do with how the jacket will fit it would be much more helpful if we could get your chest measurement and sleeve length to determine between two sizes.

If you could get those measurements for us you could either compare against the recommended size chart or give one of our Gearheads a call and they would be happy to help you out.

Hey Karen,

We are currently sold out of mugs and subscriptions. Since they were paired by the vendor we couldn't have even sell them separate even if we had them in stock.

If all you need is a mug maybe check out this one:
