    No I see what you mean. You're correct in the regards that the down leaks (very shoddy) but for $30, I don't think it's worth complaining. I'll take a look into the Arcteryx stuff, thanks.

    Wish they'd stock tees and linen shirts online already.

    How does the +J cashmere v-neck sweater fit?

    For reference, I wear a size M in the +J regular fit shirt.

    Thanks!

    Got the selvedge stretch denim they just dropped. Not bad. Fit is way too slim for me to wear the faded denim color, but black color works great.

    I size up to a 34, the leg opening is 7.5". Just a mild taper.

    That's not bad. Would you mind PM'ing me some measurements (or telling me how accurate the online ones are, they always seem off). FWIW I took a 35 in the washed PBJ's and 34 in the raws.

    Measurements on a size 35 was 12" thigh, 10" rise, 15" back rise, 7.5" leg opening. Thigh is a bit smaller than what I usually can do but the stretch is super stretchy so it helps.

    Thanks man, yeah 12" seems tiny. It doesn't seem like it would be that crazy with only 1% spandex?

    I was surprised how much stretch it has for sure. Can bring knees to chest and do a full paleo squat.

    Sweet, thanks. I guess I'll have to wait for a restock of the 34lengths.

    I'm expecting the thigh to stretch out too, selvedge and 1% stretch will def bag out.

    Is the water defender ultra light the same way or are the leaks just with the regular ultra lights and vests?

    I am wearing the AW13 UU collab from 2 years back and the down - although freaking light weight- does a nice job as a 2nd layer. But everytime i take it off, i see down leaking onto the outer.

    If you have wear a wool outer without liner, you will have a fun time picking feathers :p

    Still, for the price no complaints. [​IMG]

    Haha ok cool! Yeah, i dont really live in an area where its crazy cold like ny or chicago so it seems to do the trick for me. I dont really think purchasing a down for like 200 is needed for my area. Cant beat 29.99 sale price although i seemed to be lucky buying literally right before it went on sale. It is pretty cool that it weighs next to nothing
