Montane make serious hiking gear rather than outdoors fashion. It's a decent jacket - lightweight but with tough enough shoulders for a back pack (assuming they haven't changed the specs recently).

This might be a cheaper source: http://www.outdoormania.co.uk/Item-2...t_Venture.aspx

i like Danner for boots (mountian light IIs), patagonia and outdoor research for clothes, arcteryx for packs. orvis or patagonia for fly-fishing stuff. ll bean and barbour for non-technical outdoor stuff. but i've got stuff from most of the major manufacterers.
Danner Boots for sure - especially the Mountain Lights. Danner is made in Portland, Oregon. They've become quite popular in Japan (they even have a Japanese website http://www.danner.co.jp/outdoor/ ) which probably helped fuel renewed interest for the brand in the U.S.

Personally Filson and Columbia make darn good products, both of which have life time warranties on their products. I had a Columbia hunting jacket that I used and used hard for around 14 years. Crawling through mud, sitting out in snow storms and rain, etc.. The jacket finally began to break down about a year and a half ago. sent it into Columbia for repairs and they gave me a brand new jacket which was valued at $400.

Winchester .243 is the worlds greatest rifle. Need more stopping power? Remington Model 700 30-06 or a Weatherby .300 magnum. Browning Auto-5 shotgun. H&K or Glock 9mm.

Browning Auto-5 = fantastic shotgun a lot better than the Browning Auto Gold they have now.
I'm more of a fan of the 308. Winchester myself.

If the real question behind all this is "What can I wear so I can look 'professional', I guess it depends on whom you do wanna impress. If you want to impress some 15 years old, expensive brands you find everywhere are ok; if you want to impress a pro, you may go deeper but be aware that if all you wear is brand new (like tags and all) you might still look like a noob. PS. for me North Face and Wolfskin work just fine; Salewa, Mammut, Berghaus also (and lots of others, even no name). I guess that in the end is a matter of choice; if it were a test for shoes for ex and with brand A you could go 1000 miles and brand B 1001 and brand C 999 what would you choose ? at what cost ? would you then consider other factors ? like aesthetics, comfort  etc. ?  Cheers.
