I'll second ^^^. Sometimes a second flask is handy.

My husband just got the Caden. Hard to miss him on the mountain. Plenty of pockets. He's very happy with it. Unfortunately you do need sell at least one organ to pay for it, or your non-dominant hand.

You apparently don't understand how these things work around here.  I tried the "it works for me" attitude when @Trekchick determined I was in need of a jacket upgrade...  didn't go over so well.

 

New jacket, new look, new attitude, getting noticed, etc.  I'm something of an expert on the benefits of a new jacket.


@Betsy  had a big part in that as well as @Margaritamarcia.  I can imagine that binder is getting some input from MM. :D

 

 

@KevinF ....you look marvelous!

Great suggestions everyone! Bob looked over this thread and is appropriately overwhelmed and yet inspired to go shopping.

Well now.  That presents any number of intriguing posse liberties.     In a

 

way.

Only wear that color combination if you can ski like Phil. Mere mortal skiers need not apply.

Are you referring to the color combination, or the model? 😉

I'm not wanting to start a new thread so I'll hijack this one for a sec. I too am biting the bullet and buying a new jacket. Anyone have any experience with sizing on flylow Quantum pro? I'm 5'9 175 lbs kinda chunky. Is a large going to be too much? I hear they run big. For reference most of my T-Shirts are mediums but my Arcteryx Atom LT mid layer is large (and fits me really well). Unfortunately the local shops don't carry Flylow so I have no way to check.

Dr Bob's jacket looks eerily similar to one I helped a friend replace. He really liked the loose fit of Old Faithful. He ended up buying a snowboard jacket so he still had the loose fit but had a straight cut and updated look.

So, how's the shopping going? Pictures! We want pictures!
