pbnotj's Bio

Husky dog gets me out on trails every day regardless of brutal or not Lake superior weather. There a lot beautiful relatively less know outdoors recreation areas up in this part of country. I spend lots of time on Superior Hiking trail which I can walk to from my house and do walk on for part of the way to work everyday. Really love using outdoor gear to keep myself outside and not using car all year round. Great lifestyle up here I hope to keep going a lot longer.

Have mountain pant and this one, I would suggest trying hard to get them on sale as they are expensive for cotton pants in general; but, with that said, I love MK pants. I like this twill pant more than the original and wear it more. If you iron it well, then you can wear it to work and be more comfortable than anyone else there but it still works great for casual days. I live in MN and like that these pants are warmer than most other brands of khaki pants. I also like the softer fabric of the twill than the original mountain pant. If your not planning on scuffing the daylights out of your pants on rocks etc get these pants instead of the original mountain pant, as I bet you'll get more use out of em. Oh yeah they fit great over boots so look better than most pants if you want to wear with beefier shoes

eVent more breathable than similar gore products, stretch works well, hood like a ninja/balaclava style thing, nice wire brim, sweet weight. Bottomline this jacket performs well. Some small gripes. 1. for a price like this montane should put something soft right around the face and lips like tricot or fleece or something, it's really just less comfortable having your face on the shell material and the lining is the traditional three layer type of semi scratchy stuff. 2.) The main zipper has an awfully large rain flap in addition to the waterproof zipper so that it makes it hard to use the zip. FYI for us Americans the zipper will seem backwards, but one can get used to that part. 3.) This shell fabric seems thin in order to be lightweight. My concern is stretch reinforced around elbows+pockets+cuffs but not shoulders. I wonder if packstraps will wear on shoulders over time, haven't had long enough to tell if this will be a problem.

UPDATE as of november 2010 now- LOVE THIS SHELL HAD FOR A YEAR NOW AND WHILE THE CHIN FLAP NOT HAVING SOMETHING SOFT STILL BUGS ME SOMETIMES; I CAN SAY THIS JACKET JUST WORKS REALLY WELL, DWR COATING IS GREAT AND IS MORE BREATHABLE THAN MY PRIOR GORE TEX XCR SHELL. A GOOD DEAL WHEN AT SALE PRICE!
