Totally agreed. Wasn't meant to call your comment out per se, just wanted to put that in a little more explicitly in the thread.

You're right: if Arcteryx is trading on their well earned rep for performance w/ Vielance then it damn well better deliver, else what's the point? Those prices are nuts (to me) as is, and that's assuming the shit blows tropical scented air down my balls while I'm on the subway/chairlift/whatever.

I'm still waiting to see someone wearing Junya on the slopes.

I have to believe that happens. Just not in America. Not even in Aspen....and have you seen some of the shit worn there?

Well... Ten C Snow Smock keeps me warm in near 0 c weather with just a flannel and a cardigan underneath. smile.gif

At first I was a little disappointed in that I may have fallen for the gimmicks of the product (enormous water repellency) but, as it turns out, the amazing velvety fabric is also very capable of insulation.

you need some trousers and a good pair of boots too at the very least.

I wasn't naked... I was wearing west point twills and these schoeller x converse shoes. Ironically only my torso was cold. My feet were warm.

Like stated before, i was only wearing a shirt underneath, but you would think that in non-freezing weather the jacket would do it's job. Especially when it's sized to not really support layering.

highly recommend the schoeller x converse btw. I wear them all the time, keep my feet dry and warm, and only cost 90$

All veilance: Graph Sweater > Insulator > Field jacket.

sorry habitant it was meant as a joke as you only listed what you wore on your upper body.

did you wear the veilance insulator and a insulated field together?

I've worn my veilance field shell with a stone island shadow insulator (not the ma-1 bomber but what my girlfriend kindly calls my granny coat) at sub zero temperatures and was fine but I don't suffer much in the cold.

thought about the schoeller x converse as they're cheap as but undecided by the way it looks, may cop in the sales.

No, I was wearing just the insulated field jacket. I also have the shell + insulator
post #324 of 946

I toohave the insulated shell and wore it in sub zero temperatures sitting watching football (soccer) with only a thin shirt and a john smedley jumper and found it to be fine. If you want a really warm jacket though I would reccomend going with down.

Keen to pick this up

http://supertalk.superfuture.com/index.php?/topic/143122-fs-visvim-guide-jacket-sz-m/#entry2856749

Anyone know what the sizing/fit is like for a medium ?

I am a 37.5" chest, same height/weight as seller, but the 22" p2p suggests otherwise.

I took size 45, i wear 44 in CP's...
post #328 of 946
cheers mate but one thing I've never owned a pair of cp's

heard that you need to size down in cp so I guessing that they're tts or fit a little small?
