My list was quality, not flippability. TNF will flip to wannabe gangstas. Old school TNF will flip to mountain people. The other brands will flip to people who actually use the stuff.
I made a $100 flip on a Sierra Designs down jacket. I also forgot Outdoor Research and MSR.
I don't know about that. I take my advice on outdoor wear from the guy on the right. He lives at 9k ft, fought with the SF in the Afghan mountains, and swears by TNF. They have several ranges on stuff much of his is silver-reflective lined, which differs from the stuff you can pick up from the mall, but it's definitely North Face.
