End of BPL Gear? on 10/06/2010 23:46:17 MDT Print View

I'm just curious, will there be any more BPL Merino Wool Hoodys and Thorofare Trekking Pants available? Ever? I'm planning on buying an Ibex hoody and have already bought a pair of railriders pants. Just curious. Thanks.

BPL Gear on 10/07/2010 00:02:04 MDT Print View

I don't see an end to BPL gear but maybe to some products. BPL seems to have a constantly changing product line. This year it seems to be focused on the Stealth tarp, Hane Rod, Absoraka (sp?) pack and Cocoon clothing since BPL seems to have limited funds to invest in product offerings.

I'd be surprised if they don't do another run of the merino wool stuff at some point relatively soon.

I thought the wool stuff was dead due to fabric being unavailable?

note that their most popular listing is probably the most viewed listing ... since you cant buy the pack right now

not that it matters .. just shows what most people are looking ... not necessarily buying

The last I heard, we're having trouble finding someone willing to sew the UL merino items due to the thin fabric. Sam would know more.

The Ibex Indie Hoody is really good though. And RailRiders is having a 25% off sale.

I got sick of waiting too and just pulled the trigger on the Ibex Hooded Indie

https://www.ibexwear.com/shop/product/1794/2575/womens-hooded-indie

As a bonus they have sizes appropriate for a 5'6" male unlike BPL. I sure do wish BPL could keep all their sizes and items in stock because their gear is second to none in design. I've been tempted to take some of these designs and have them made in China cheaply and sell them right back to the people here that cannot purchase them from BPL!

What about Devold? on 10/07/2010 12:18:35 MDT Print View

Devold is made in my hometown (not a town actually with only 4000 citizens). They have some pretty light clothes: www.devold.com

That is so cool that they make a lightweight longsleeve wool shirt in off white. Just like a Wool 2 but hopefully more durable.

I have an Ibex Indie as well as a BPL UL hoody. I'm reserving the Indie for Winter conditions though where I can use the UL hoody well in to the 70s.

The Devold website doesn't seem to be a retail outlet.
Anyone know of a US source?

Anybody know anything about Devold's sizing? Probably on the smaller European set but there is no way of knowing.
