Yeah, they are def a bit pricey. But, I like the simplicity of design, and have a handful of their titanium items for backpacking. Although, the titanium flask is also good for everyday use wink.gif

It is pricey compared to other techwear brands.  I was tempted to go with Norrona, which is also good, bu the rep offered me 20%, which brought the price down to the same as that of any European or North American outdoor brands.  So, win.  Frankly, I was surprised that www.backcountry.com sold the clothing at all.  Usually, the clothing (not the gear) is only found in it's own stores or fashion/outdoor stores like Pilgrim Surf Supply.

 

@zissou - when I buy Japanese tech-fashion wear, I am happy that I stopped at 5'11", and never got to 6'2", which was my goal height.  So, give me that.

 

I find that for tech clothing, there are three distinct types and highly related to origin.  North American stuff like Northface and Marmot are very performance oriented, and work really well, but the actual look of the clothes are either secondary, or, in the case of something like Patagonia, shoot at that very white, middle class, suburban demographic.  I guess that there are companies like Nau, Isaora, and Outlier, but those are really fashion brands that use techy materials.  Leave it up to the Americans to compartmentalize everything.  The European stuff - Norrona, Haglofs, etc..., especially from Scandanavia, are very performance based as well, but the cuts are typicaly more flattering, and you look like you should grow big hair and an excellent beard and spend your summers in the alps or something.  The Japanese, with brands like Nanamica and Snowpeak, really seem, at least to me, to bridge that fashion.tech divide well - these Snowpeak softshell pants, for example, have useful zippered hip pockets (zippered = essential unless you want to lose all your crap), and instead of the very typical, and often awkwardly placed, cargo pocket at the knee, has the cargo pocket incorporated into the hip pocket, so that you can store your notebook there if you need, but don't need a third pocket expressly for that reason.

Haglöfs shells are some of the most common jackets around town in spring/fall. It seems like cyclists are especially keen on them.

Nørrona normally retail in the same realm as Arcteryx, but as you mention the cut is better. The only problems I have with Norrøna is their zippers and that they lack a jacket like the Haglöfs Utvak etc.

I think that I like the cuts and details on Norrona pants more, but yes, I like the Haglof's jackets.

Navy Belstaff Gransden leather jacket. Wasn't sure if I liked the navy but it's a dark blue and the lamb skin is great. 6171ec985ffc4d18ec1d3a0bee5f98e7.jpg
