Hi!

How durable is the fabric? I've got bad experiences with Pertex Quantum GL fabric, which is a 10D fabric and can't be worn as an outer layer with anything on your back, no matter how light it is. In my experience plastic pieces of the straps will catch on the fabric, causing it to bubble-up.

The Transcendent-Line uses 20D, will it be considerably more durable than 10D? Will it cope with a light daypack? And how warm is it compared to 60g primaloft/ 200 fleece?

Thanks!

I got this jacket a year ago and still curse the day I bought it. It's so useless and expensive. It combines all the negatives of the different materials.

1. the paclite won't do you any good if it starts raining cause you'll get wet at the arms after a couple of minutes, followed by your chest and back
2. it's not warm at all cause the paclite is really thin and at the neck it's not possible to tighten up without the hood on
3. you can't wear a heavy backpack cause it will kill the paclite

the only pro of this jacket is the good look but seriously, go either for a pure softshell or a good hardshell (Goretex Active, stay away from paclite!).

Hi! I got these this morning and I am not sure what to do. I wear 38,5 in Scarpas and tried 37,5 Katanas and was confident I'd break them in nicely but returned them cause the heel didn't fit all too well.
These beauties are 36 and it's very painfull to even sit around in them. It's easy to get them on and they kind of fit like a glove but my toes are super bent. I am not used to climbing with bent toes (my scarpas are the technos) but I always wanted to give it a try but now I am not sure if these will stretch enough.
I gave the dealer a call and he asured me that the cobras will stretch a lot.

So what do I do, return them or hope for the best?
