I have a problem – I’m a gear junkie. There, I’ve said it – I’m done with Step 1.
I have way too many jackets, and the recent Patagonia and REI sales didn’t help matters too much. Given that, I’m selling some of them. All are in very, very good condition; they’ve never been washed in detergent – only in Nikwax Tech Wash, and waterproofed and DWR-renewed when needed with Softshell Proof.
All these jackets are Men’s Small.
1. Cloudveil Prospector Pullover (Khaki) $65 ($115 new)
This is a summer weight softshell that uses Cloudveil’s Inertia fabric. It’s very wind and water resistant, but will soak through after 30-45 minutes of rain. I’ve worn this on climbs up a bunch of 14-ers (including Rainier last summer), and I’ve never been too hot or cold. If you’d rather take a professional’s word for it, here’s a nice review from BPL.
As the review says, the pullover weighs a feathery 8.6 oz. It’s also soft enough to be worn directly against your skin, and wicks pretty well when worn that way.
2. Mountain Hardwear Alchemy Jacket (Smokey Blue/Shark) $120 ($240 new)
This is a really, really warm and comfortable jacket. I’ve snowboarded with this jacket a couple of times, and it’s kept me warm and dry -it’s very warm and breathable at the same time. One caveat – it’s cut really trim (what MH calls an alpine fit). I love this jacket – the only reason I’m selling it is that I want a jacket with a hood. Here’s a link with more information: http://www.altrec.com/shop/detail/15831/
3. Marmot Driclime Hooded Jacket (Orange/Black) $75 ($150 new)
It’s a Driclime – what more do you want? :) It’s hooded, windproof, has a drop-tail hem, and has two handwarmer pocket, one Napolean pocket, and two zippered pockets on the back of the jacket, just above the hip (which makes it very useful when you’re biking or running). The attached lined hood is very warm, and since it’s made of the same fabric as the rest of the jacket, is windproof. The hood is NOT helmet-compatible though, but is thin enough to be worn under a helmet. Also, the driclime liner wicks amazingly well. It’s versatile enough to be used as a baselayer, midlayer or outer layer, depending on conditions.
4. Eddie Bauer down jacket (Olive Green) $50 ($100 new)
650 fill down, not really a technical jacket, but will keep you very warm. Has a patch commemorating the 40th anniversary of Jim Whittaker getting up Everest, if that’s at all interesting to you.
I have pictures, so let me know. All prices are exclusive of actual shipping rates – I’ll include the ship receipt in the box when I send it out.Mar 11, 2006 at 10:34 pm #1352358Siddharth SriramMember
