These chairs are great for back support, and, if you have the funds to get one for every student would for sure hold up to the serious abuse kids can dish out. They are also super easy to fold up and stow away, I'm picturing a long hook to hang them from their carrier handles.
I'm a teacher, too, and that sounds like a good idea EXCEPT.... these chairs would be very "fun" for the kids. When you sit down they lean back a bit and you can easily tilt your whole body back to rest just on your butt. I can totally picture kids rocking back and forth in these things, some falling backwards, possibly getting hurt. I feel like it would be more of a distraction for them than a comfort. And I think the kindergarten kids would be a bit too small to fit in the chair properly.
Excellent idea, though! Let me know if it works! :)

I just got my ArcTeryx Alibi pants in the mail - speedy delivery as usual, thank you! I am almost always an 8. I am 5'7" and 150 lbs, a very typical 8. So I got an 8 and they are SO tight! The fabric is not stretchy at all, either. I cannot imagine ever climbing in these, with no give in the fabric.
Weird sizing. No give in the fabric. A miss for ArcTeryx. I'll be returning them.

These pants are in the softshell category, but would they really work as water resistant softshells? I'd like to wear them Ice Climbing, would they layer under another shoftshell pant? Or could i get away with a long underwear underneath and wear these pants as my outermost layer?

This is my second Chicago winter with this jacket and I love it. It is super warm even on those sub zero days. I do a little bit of ice climbing and the helmet-compatible hood is great on those occasions but for regular wear the hood is really huge and looks pretty dorky. No one cares what you look like when the wind chill is -40, though. The pockets are lovely and warm, and with the fleece-lined collar I never need a scarf- so cozy.
OR is a great company, they helped me out when I accidentally ripped the jacket open on some crampons (feathers everywhere!!!). I tried to patch it with the patch they sent but when that didn't work they replaced the Jacket. Very friendly, very helpful! I'll be wearing this jacket for years and years!
