From a recent PM, I've begun thinking about how technical outerwear (Undercover, Acronym, Stone Island, Arc’teryx Veilance) might fare in the weather conditions they were designed for. I'm curious to hear from any of you with experience or knowledge from these labels if they actually hold up and work as advertised (or have made a significant improvement) in inclement weather conditions or if those technical features/details is just marketing.
I think I should conduct a test the next time I go mountaineering.
When you go above Columbia level tech brand, its just the matter of brand name and the "little attention to details" bs. I found my friend's SI jacket poor in construction (not talking about seam tape porn here) and durability compared to regular North Face stuffs.
As for Canada Goose, I am going to call them today because of their cheap zipper that snapped when I was boxing it.
