Vancouver BC and surrounding
Anyone know what the Denier count is on these pants? Marmot says they're 3.9oz/yd2 - I'm Canadian, so yards and ounces are foreign to me. But seriously I did look online for a conversion table, couldn't find anything.
Thanks in advance
what's with the "thumbholes: no" over on the right hand side? Doesn't this have thumbholes?
Are there any changes to this mitt from last year? (other than the obvious color changes)
Good shoes, like skate shoes on steroids. Good tread (what else can you expect from Vibram) I usually take a 10.5 and the 10 fits me fine. The leather/suade takes a while to break in, but once it does it's REAL comfy. Probably my fav shoe. I am wearing them right now. FYI these are really similar to the "hog tie" also from patagonia.
Super light, keeps you warm, what else can you want.
I got my GF a small, and it fits her nicely (a tad on the short side in the torso, but only slightly) for reference she is 5'8" and 115lbs, with long arms. It's so light and packs down really small. It's no the warmest down jacket out there, but does the job, and if the temperature really dips you can always throw a shell overtop to keep you toasty.
As a warmth insurance for ski trips, or hiking in the shoulder seasons, for the price I doubt you can beat it.
I got my gf a size small, and it's just over 6 oz total. Seems rediculously light in the hand, like it could blow away.
Really? that needed to be posted 3 times on the same page? twice for the same question? Someone's pumping his profile ;) Thanks though, not a pressing issue so I was willing to let it wait.
Will this be coming out in a women's version?
Overall, I like it, and am going to keep it.
Pros: REALLY light, packs down REALLY small (I fit it in a box 7" x 4" x 3" without really squishing it down). I drove home with the A/C on, and it was a reasonably cold day, seemed warm enough. I'll have to re-post about warmth, after I try it out in the field. The Pertex Quantum Exterior seems water resistant (it's raining here today and shed the rain pretty good walking from car to home, etc) but I doubt it would hold up for long exposure.
Cons: Don't REALLY care for the color (see pictures) I got the "Excalibur/Vintage" color. The exterior (Excalibur) is a purplish grey, which seems alright. And the interior is purple (Vintage), why Stoic can't make awesome gear, in not so "fabulous" colors is beyond me. All in all, this isn't such a big deal. The cuffs look like rigid webbing in the photos, but they are softer, so I like that. The problem is they are REALLY tight, I like to be able to shove the sleeves up my arm if I am doing something with my hands, and this makes it kind of hard to do. I guess since they are fairly long (1.5") it means you wont really have much material getting in your way, but still this tightness is pretty awkward, hopefully they will loosen over time. If you have big wrists (which I dont) this might be a problem for you.
Fit: I am 5'10" 175, and the M fits me well (see photo)
not REALLY two pockets inside... but the outside pockets are sewn in such a way that you can use the fabric as a pocket that closes along 3 sides, and opens from the top; so it's a pocket, but not one that closes tight, but works good enough for most things. I use this when I have it zipped in to a compatible shell, bad part is if you even bail while skiing/snowboarding, you lose everything in those pockets
Ok, looks like you added that to the data on the side... thanks :)
Good quality, good build. So many uses beyond climbing.
I own two patagonia fleeces, a few northface ones, a couple columbia fleeces and several others (Yes I have more fleeces than I know what to do with) This one takes the cake though.
Not the fanciest sweater, if you're going out to dinner or what not, but nice enough that you could probably get away with wearing it to work.
The waffeling pattern of thwe fleece, really holds in the heat, but is pretty good in the wind too. It's light weight like 100 wt fleece, but holds in warmth closer to 200 or 300 wt. I'm 5'10" 175 lbs, and the M fits me well, maybe a little on the tighter side (or athletic fit) but I like that for layering and it looks better ;)
This is worth the money, although at MSRP it's pretty pricey.
This is pretty good as a backup. I keep one or two in my backpack at all times for biking or finding lost stuff in the dark. Can't beat 4$ per, so I got half a dozen last time they went up on SAC.
Is this thing just buttons, or does it have a zipper too? Does anyone know of a down vest that just has buttons?
People who are complaining about this are missing the point. This is NOT a BA air core, it's not meant to sleep on a bed of nails and insulate you below 0. It's great for summer and warm spring/fall trips and really keeps the weight down.
It does what it's made for, and does it well. But dont take this winter camping, or if you're sleeping on gravel.
Just be a man about it. "yeah I'm wearing 'Homer Simpson blue' pants, what of it?" they are really blue, but so what?
Used it for bearhang, and it works well.
