Not really winter but I have purchased four (4) rain coats in the last year, three really the radio one was just swag that came with the donation.

This hunter brand is pretty nice, I appreciate that the coat is long, high wasted rain coats are no bueno.

For heavy rain it is hard to beat pvc impregnated canvas in my assesment.

Got this lightweight coat with the Hill City close out, too bad they are going to end the line, I like the clothing, tech without being all K2 about it.

Well worth a listen, even though they have not been all live cause of covid and their website is really quite shitty.

those are low key fire

 

the yellow joint caught my eye...i really love technical fabrics and weaving the canvas with strands of pvc sounds fucking genius for waterproofing

Another old palace piece.

I wore the shit out of this jacket when I first got it.

Ventile cotton is a waterproof material made 100% out of cotton...the secret is in the weave. The weave allows the cotton to swell when wet making it impermeable.

This is my go to shell. Ive found a bunch of these at my local goodwill so I have no problem fucking it up working outside in it or painting in it. The seals compete with any goretex jacket ive ever used. Throw the down puffy underneath it and its hella warm. I've just been rocking snowpants for most of winter on trekks around town or in the train spot wherever there may be deep snow. I cant be fucked anymore walking around in denim or anything like that in winter where the bottom half of your pants is just frozen solid after awhile. I have yet to find a casual looking snowpant for around town use.

These boots were gifted to me.. great at first, but only lasted about 2 to 3 months before the rubber cracked open where the boot becomes creased from walking. Would not recommend.  If anyone has any good boot recommendations please let me know. My other pair is some leather Timberlands that've been going strong for 6 years or so, not really a winter boot though.

Sorel started going to shit when Columbia Sportswear bought it 

 

They used to be tanks that could last 10 years, now all you hear is stories of them cracking

Man. Ive been all over this site and I cant tell if Iove it or hate it. Been contemplating signing up for the drop of that indestructible bubble. 

 

I haven't purchased anything yet because I feel the same way you do about it.  Now if I lived in colder climates where snow is part of life.  Then I am sure I would already own a few pieces. 

 

Now as for that watch, I'm waiting to see price and specs.  Depending on those two factors will make it or break it.

That garbage watch is super cool looking. Also that glow in the dark jacket is tight too. I think the only thing I dont like about anything on that site is some of their pricing. Like it takes 40 weeks to make a fire proof hoodie? What? I dont think you  could put an accurate price on something like that? Maybe $400 is cheap.

I didn't get into it that far. But yeah, 40 weeks at $400 how is that profitable, is it one of those things where they wait for multiple orders and run at once?   Because 40 weeks doesn't tell me its exclusive but more so work off and on when I get around to it?

 

Yeah, that glow in the dark i thought is pretty cool, specially for those who run or cycle.

Its super vague but I started thinking that time period included how long it takes to source materials and the actual construction of the fabric. I would imagine that the actual construction doesnt take that long at all.

 

End speculation.

On the subject of goretex I love arcteryx stuff, from the regular line to LEAF to Veilance. I would like to get a beta sv or AR jacket but none of their colorways have been super appealing as something different. I saw this on reddit today which I thought looked great which I believe is a beta SL, i dont think those are as durable as some of the higher end models unfortunately
