IIRC primordial primadonna Socal2Nyc bought those and no one was particularly nice to him about them, but this was back when everyone's grail was a Wings + Horns hoodie to go with their brand new APCs they bought for $115 from some guy named Mario at the Denim Bar

The focus was just on muted technical perfection. It only caught on in the internet fashion world because of a) the name (seriously, veilance just fits in with the whole tech/goth ninja hybrid aesthetic), and b) the quality/price point of their jackets was the highest of anything not made by gaudy Moncler; it was simply a whole other level (rightfully so, Veilance stuff is unparalleled in the attention to detail and the quality of fabric).
This is also why most outdoor enthusiasts buy Arc'teryx stuff - compared to the Columbia/TNF/whatever else, Arc'teryx is just on a whole other level with fabric technology and construction. My family and I have always been avid outdoors people, and we've sworn by Arc'teryx stuff for decades (so perhaps I am a bit biased), but my dad's Sidewinder ski jacket from the 90's is still in pristine condition, and all the zippers/seams are basically new.


Is using 2 layers of gore-tex developed fabrics really that much of a technological leap?

I've never handled veilance but I can't really see what's so great about their fabric. It seems to me like it's the same as any other gore jacket.

The construction and machining that goes into it might be excellent. Still I have to think that all these innovations (microseams etc) do is very slightly reduce the weight of the jacket. Might be useful at the top end perhaps.

e.g. waterproof zips are unnecessary if you just add a placket to the design.

Those details are nice to have though and I guess contribute to the nature of the garment from a stylistic sense.

I wish there was more actual fabric innovation as it seems that everyone is still stuck with gore-tex.

I swear I saw kindofyoung post Fuckyeastyleforum's latest bit giving a breakdown of all the SF players, but now I seem to have completely lost even what thread it was in.

Anyways, got a very accurate shout-out frown.gif

Snake, I agree with what Sipang said about those brands and stand by what I said on tumblr earlier. You're really paying for design and that niche product more than you are something to protect you from the elements. I know I only use my gear for urban exploits, but I would never depend on my UC field jacket for anything other than protection from light rain. I'd rather be in something like arcteryx or tad gear in cold or wet conditions.

Hendrix, companies are using other textiles like Polartec or Schoeller(which I happen to be decked out in right now, so comfy). Anyways I think for the most part, manufacturers are less concerned with water resistance and more so with breathability.

I think I should conduct a test the next time I go mountaineering. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I have a nonnative goretex jacket that has held up exceptionally well and I've had it for about a year and a half, though it's much older than that (maybe '09 season). This is from multiday AT hikes, weeklong field work in coastal islands, almost daily commuting. I don't baby it all and it's only now that the seam tape is peeling. Though most of the work I do you can get away with layering and a light outershell like that, though I've been dry in downpours and the jacket has not shown any signs of wetting out yet.

I know it's not any of the brands but it's cool to think of a japanese fashion label producing really good stuff that holds up well.
