Can't wait for a rainy weather to try them out.


Cool. Let us know how you get on with them.

 

Due to a rainy and fairly miserable spring here in Blighty I've been giving my Vulpine Epics a fair bit of wear. Cut and finished really nicely. With excellent articulation designed for cycling I've yet to miss the lack of stretch even when out on the hills, jumping stiles, climbing boulders etc. 

 

Also in Epic, dropped this week... J28-E

I am curious about it, but frankly the Hylete gear I have bought has just been amazing. Their shorts are leagues above anything else I have owned.
post #934 of 984

Do Hylete make anything without branding all over them?

I train in my garage for the most part so it's like 5 layers in winter and the lightest shorts I can find in the summer (nike 7" phenom shorts that came out recently are awesome). It would be nice to have something more versatile and presentable for the times I actually go to the gym to train.

 

Either way, I ordered some of the bonded sweats (look and sound just like the nike tech fleece) and the nylon training shorts. Also grabbed the micro drop indigo twill shorts and "zig zahort" sweat shorts.

I just buy the Black on black shorts. I think the rest of their branding is just to OTT for me. The t-shirts aren't too bad since they just have a logo and a bit of type.

Recently picked up a couple items from Isaora, specifically the 'water resistant pant' and the 'stretch button down shirt'.

The pants aren't very water resistant, and the shirt has little to no stretch (as always the sizing always seems huge on me).

The fabrics appear to be quite nice (I get a lot of compliments on the texture of both items).

The elastic at the bottom of the pants also gets twisted around, which can be annoying.

 

Also seeing if there's any interest in a couple items I'm looking to sell/trade.

Acronym GT-J16 (M) (Used)

Arcteryx Theta SL Hybrid (M) (Barely used, like new, original tags)

PM me for any interest.

Anybody have real-world experience with the Veilance LT Blazer? I received one recently but am conflicted about whether or not to keep it. I'm not a techwear guy but this jacket appealed to me for its looks and its practicality. The idea of a casual sport coat that's also weather resistant is really attractive. I'm concerned about breathability, though. With a fabric content of 94% nylon am I going to sweat like crazy?
post #938 of 984
I took am curious as I'm looking at the wind shirt, which is 100 percent nylon.
post #939 of 984

I've got the Veilance LT blazer and love it. Like pretty much all Veilance stuff its very well thought out: highly water resistant and windproof yet somehow breathable and perfect for summer weather. I think the design is also unobtrusive enough to work well as a casual blazer. In addition to that it is the sort of jacket that you can bunch up without making it wrinkly, it does not attract lint and is very lightweight. I don't own an Isogon but I think it is the same material in more of a parka cut.

 

At any rate, I obviously do recommend the jacket and you can probably score a pretty good discount soon during sale season.

@OccultaVexillum Any feedback on the isaora gear? Need some training stuff too.
post #941 of 984

Oh yeah I forgot. I ended up just getting the training shorts and a pair of the sweats. Like them both a lot. I had a 25% off coupon though, otherwise the nike tech fleece are probably a better deal (Isaora is slightly better fit imo but an extra $30-40). Shorts are really good, I don't really like the short inseam of most training shorts, unless you go with bball shorts but those are usually too heavy/dense, the training shorts are super light weight and about a 9.5" inseam in the Large.

would buy again.

East Dane has an extra 25% off sale items. I picked up the Veilance Field LT jacket. Hoping it's a good choice.
