    ^ What size is the Liner? Your usual Vis size?

    Yup, went tts and think I made the right choice. Its very blousy but arms are short, just like a liner should be. Materials and cutting are superb, as per usual.

    The liner looks really good.

    Fycus that liner looks awesome. That is definitely on my wishlist, it's just hard to justify right now it being 80+ every day and all. Fit is perfect on you.

    Fit is spot-on! Makes me wanna grab one too, but price is abit costly & hard to swallow. That's Vis.........

    For what its worth, they also have a down coat in the same fabric iirc for only 30 more bucks (excl tax) which is probably more versatile. JPY is also pretty low with exchange rate so all in its not horrendous for Visvim. I think this is expensive because of the hardware (heavy duty military style riri) and the lining which is custom mohair/wool blend. It's not particularly soft, but when you combine these one-off fabrics, custom treatments (heavily washed high density nylon) the pricing starts to make more sense. It's also too warm in cali to wear the liner right now, but I knew it would sell out so I figured it could wait in my closet for a few months.

    Fycus did you order it from Japan using a proxy? I've been looking for a good proxy for pick ups and not sure where to go.

    The yen definitely makes the price more palatable, that's for sure!

    ^ Yes it is. I think HumanBehaviour still has some stock.

    Anyways, I just received mine and I just wanted to ask what should I treat my kngr virgils with, if anything? We have a lot of rainy days where im at...
