Maharishi is rad. Speaking of which if anybody sees an L/34 of the wool shinobi pants (non drop version) please let me know.

This may be a bit off-topic, but I agree with you guys about well-made stuff. I have always thought it would be fun to make ultra strong blue jeans. What if you wove denim with strong nylon thread? That might be interesting.

I've been checking out the Isaora Neo Bomber in black. Does anyone have any experience with it? Are their sweatshirts fitted or more loose? I usually wear a 36 or 38 so il trying to decide between a Small or Extra Small.

There are jeans made with Cordura. Proof NY did some but the cut was terrible.

Secret not so secret exclusive drop on the Acronym site.

There are plenty of motorcycle jeans that are ultrastrong - Try Saint.

Also, does anyone know how the current Acronym bag fabric breaks in? It talks about patina, but I am not loving my current bag's break-in look (older Limonta fabric).

What's the logical progression in value for ultralight down jackets beyond uniqlo ? Will use it primarily as a liner, and later for long term traveling.

Tempted to hunt a dead bird cerium Lt/sl whatever.

Honestly it is all trade-offs in weight, size, expense, etc. A liner - you would want lighter so that it doesn't bunch, etc. A long-term traveling jacket might need more pockets and possibly more insulation depending on where you are going...

I am not endorsing anything written here, but the general article seems useful:

Any article about technical down jackets that doesn't mention Feathered Friends is in complete. That said, I really like my Western Mountain Flash jacket.

I started my down outerwear journey with columbia cheap-ass down jacket ($99), went all the way up to Canada Goose and Duvetica in 4 years, because Minnesota. However, I still couldn't deal with the feather coming out and/or sometimes poking me with pointy ends of the feather. That, and having to dry clean them have been a hassle and I now resort to primaloft and polartec with gore-tex shell.
Am I asking too much if I want a ~$1k down jacket that won't bother me and just keep me warm? shog[1].gif

I mean, I know the hype is there for FF. But realistically there are plenty of good down jackets. The nice thing FF has is the customization, but I would never suggest that they were very good looking. Even their lightweight down jackets are kind of puffy and seem meant for purely technical adventuring.

And I would almost ignore the ratings and just look at the article underneath for some down basics. I honestly have never really noticed much of a difference between most brands at the same weight so I think Uniqlo down vs Arcteryx down vs whatever in the ultralight category is pretty interchangeable.The main thing is whether the jacket is more fashion-forward or technical...

Oh my bad, I thought this thread was about technical outerwear.

My impression was that it was more fashion-side of technical - if you look, a lot of the brands discussed are ones like Isaora and Outlier. There isn't that much chat on hardcore outdoor stuff like Westcomb or FF or whatever.
