Re: Re: Re: Re: Wind and eVent v.s. Gore-Tex

Re: Re:Fjallraven video
Good info and advice all, thanks. It sounds like a layered solution can make for a versatile and cost effective solution for varied conditions at slight weight hit. Since the spring/summer is up...

my 2c
My only piece of Arcteryx kit is a Theta AR goretex shell. Its 3 years old and made in China. I was bummed to see it wasn't Canadian made (apparently its luck of the draw) but its what they had...
