Scheels in Fargo, ND has a fair selection of GoLite Paradigm ($50), Kick ($20 or $25) and Ether ($20 or $25) Jackets on sale. There are quite a few blues but also some green and rust red.
If this is a good enough deal, and people are seriously interested I would consider buying some and mailing them out. I assume tax and shipping would add about $5 to the price.Nov 6, 2007 at 4:46 pm #1408091
Thanks for offering to buy and ship! I would be interested in a Golite Ether jacket — in "Caspian Blue", medium. Thanks!Nov 6, 2007 at 5:09 pm #1408095

I would also be intrested in a Golite ether in XL, blue
(green will be my second choice)
That would be awsome -Thanks!Nov 6, 2007 at 5:27 pm #1408099
Careful Peter, you may get a bigger response than anticipated.
I'm in for:
1 GoLite Ether, Med. Rust
1 GoLite Ether, SM. Green
Thanks a lot, that's a good deal.
(PS, don't forget Paypal's cut. Another lesson learned)Nov 6, 2007 at 6:04 pm #1408108
Good point about paypal fees. Is that how most people would want to pay? Ideally I would get paid before I ship.
I think I will go and buy out the stock of Ether jackets and let everyone know exactly what is available.Nov 6, 2007 at 6:22 pm #1408112
One way of doing this: add up purchase and shipping cost. Then tack on 4% to the total to defray Paypal cost. I'd be glad to paypal you before you buy — so you won't be "out of pocket" doing us a good deed.
Let us know your preference. Thanks!Nov 6, 2007 at 8:50 pm #1408121

Hi Peter, Thanks for doing this. I would like an ether in small blue. if there is a different color for the $20 price I would prefer that. Please email me with your cost and I'll pay via paypal. Thanks again!Nov 6, 2007 at 9:32 pm #1408124

Please sign me up for a medium Ether. I'd prefer Rust, Green, or Blue – in that order.
For $20 – $25, right? (That seems to be a lot better than 33% of – but no complaints.) :-)
Please let me know how you prefer payment (Paypal is fine) and if you would like it before you place the order.

The rust red is not the current Ether model; it should be port red? Make sure of what year you are buying.
If they are the current year model, I'd like an Ether, size large Caspian blue.Nov 6, 2007 at 10:02 pm #1408127
I just want to clarify that these jackets are in a clearance type sale, and availability is not guaranteed. I am worried that there are going to be disappointed people out there, but I will buy up as many as I can.
I will write again tomorrow afternoon when I get back from the store.Nov 6, 2007 at 10:04 pm #1408128
Rust red was just my description of the color…
Should it say on the tag what year it is from?Nov 6, 2007 at 10:21 pm #1408129
Re. the Ether jackets — current means 2007. The tags won't indicate year, but it should say "breathable".
In any case, this really should be pretty straightforward. The old hooded, non-breathable, full-zip wind jackets were called "Helios" — so totally different model name. Hope this helps — and thanks!Nov 7, 2007 at 5:36 am #1408151

I'm in for an Ether in Blue or Green. I think a size medium is good. Can anyone confirm this for a 5'8 150 pound male of average size? I wear medium Patagonia gear and it fits well..Nov 7, 2007 at 9:36 am #1408173
Since I am also buying one sight unseen — I can't confirm 100%. However, I have worn two other Golite wind jackets — the old Ventus and Helios — and Golite's Medium fits me perfectly. I'm 5'9" and 150 lbs.Nov 7, 2007 at 10:13 am #1408179
Bad news, apparently a group of runners came in and bought up most of the good stock before I got there.
I bought the one and only remaining Ether jacket, a large burnt orange one. It does seem to be the current year, it says it is highly breathable.
I will wait at least until the end of the day to see if anyone who has already responded would like a Large Orange Ether, otherwise the first person to respond gets it for $31. ($26.49 price plus tax, $4.5 shipping, paypal fees) Sorry to get everyones hopes up.Nov 7, 2007 at 11:45 am #1408193

No worries! Thanks for going through all the trouble.
SteveNov 7, 2007 at 12:26 pm #1408197
No problem. Thanks for checking for us!Nov 7, 2007 at 12:41 pm #1408199
I thought the same thing about the runners, but then I realized that the store stocked them for runners in the first place.
The jacket has been sold, thanks John.
