'Multi-environment reconnaissance stealth operations' mean Walts often don those hues when popping down the corner shop for milk and a paper!

For me it's more the styling/concept than colour thing. No doubt some folks can pull it off without looking like a Walt but I think it's a very fine line.

Anyone can feel free to PM me for the M in case it doesn't fit. Looking for something I can potentially wear a sweatshirt under though.

I wouldn't want to provoke a paintball/shuriken/pokemon attack and I presume countersurveillance measures would be deployed but I'll do my best.

Hey guys, i thought you might be interested in this listing. These j-cut jeans are treated with a water resistant coating. TECH MOTHAFUCKA!

The cut is like the arcteryx veronois. Unfortunately they don't fit me or they'd be in my closet right now.

looking for a basic 3/4 length hooded spring/summer weight fishtail parka (no or lightly insulated) in black with no fur trim. of everything I've come across, this ace hotel x alpha industries jam seems closest to what I'm looking for, but want it in black.




have done quite a bit of searching, but nothing quite hit the mark. any recs?

There's that Ten C Nylon microfibre parka:

It's a lot pricier than the ace hotel one, though.

thanks for the rec...not loving the waist cinch or material and have heard mixed reviews reviews about ten c stuff. any other recs?

The thing about Bodega is that with a 30% sale they are still more expensive than EU stores - VAT.

I'm just glad they got rid of their piece of junk velcro strap (owners know what I mean) and put either button or snaps on the newer models.

I just need to say, the Arc'teryx Veilance insulated field jacket is the single best piece of outerwear I've ever owned. I used to switch my jackets almost daily. Now I don't want to wear anything else unless the weather is nice.

It's completely waterproof, seam sealed, minimalistic and has every detail worked out in such a way that I could not imagine it having been done better, from the deployable hood to the placement of the key clip. This last point is a rare pleasure for me. It's a timeless military cut, with no logos, clean lines, few signs of the manual work done to craft it and barely visible zippers. While it managed to have all the insulation and weather resistance needed to combat a single-digit temp, snowy winter, it does this weighting about a pound. It's not showy - no fancy furry hoods - but you can tell it's high quality. But my favorite aspect is the way it insulates. The goretex pro membrane is so f*king breathable that I never feel a fluctuation in temperature. I just stay exactly as warm as I need to. Did I mention it's basically weightless?

This jacket doesn't look fancy. But own one and you'll see how amateurish it makes all the other around-town technical jackets feel. #obsessed

What specifically makes it so versatile in terms of temperature?

It just seems kind of impossible that a jacket like that can handle single digit tempz without heavy layering.

I wore it skiing in Vermont at -13C with just an Icebreaker tshirt and Heattech long sleeve t underneath.
