Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I ride pretty much year round and these have worn well. Cinders, gravel, potholes...they have been worth the money. Today I had my first flat with them, but it was most likely because of a cut in the sidewall during a very rainy ride. I had to ride on a rough shoulder to let a car pass on an uphill climb and I could hear the hissing as the tire lost air - oh crap. Nevertheless, I put a new tube in and did another 40 miles until I got home. I have to replace the rear tire, hence my visit here. The front is still in great shape. No reason I won't get another season out of that one.

I tried on the Apastron before the DAS. You have to size up on it. It has a very trim cut in the body but long in the arms. It also lacks a two way zipper. But all the other features are great. One thing to note is that the DAS parka has Primaloft insulation. The Apastron has a different type of Primaloft (Eco). I don't know how it compares in warmth. But I think the windstopper shell will be more durable. I plan on using my DAS with a shell when expecting abuse.
