I like both GO and ALS, and I don't think anyone is arguing that GO is illegitimate. The question is whether the PML and Lange 1 serve difference purposes. If you have both a Lange 1 and a PML, would you wear both? They have similar aesthetics and having both seems redundant IMO. Thus, given an expressed preference for a Lange 1, the wiser course seems to be to skip the PML and put the money toward a Lange 1.
