Is it just me or is the price of stuff getting too expensive now? It just seems to me that a lot of gear looks way overpriced for the average punter. Also this really lightweight insulation is it just a bit gimmicky? i would rather carry something a couple of hundred grams heavier but KNOW that it will keep me warm rather than hoping it will.
Why did they not just make a stuff pocket on the front to fold the jacket up in and keep other small bits in. I very much doubt Philippe Gatta will be paying for his but most other people will have too
i've been using Montrail Enduro ones for a few years now both the standard and slightly thinner ones and they are superb as they are heat moldable just stick em in the oven and then stand on them and they mould to your foot shape. A lot cheaper than the custom fit sidas ones which you would expect but way better than the crap you get with most footwear. I think footwear manufacturers should offer something like this with all their boots etc as they are a must for a lot of people to give proper arch support etc.
