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.Oct 6, 2010 at 11:02 pm #1652238

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.Oct 7, 2010 at 12:42 am #1652251

I thought the wool stuff was dead due to fabric being unavailable?Oct 7, 2010 at 1:00 am #1652252

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 buyingOct 7, 2010 at 3:10 am #1652262

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.Oct 7, 2010 at 8:31 am #1652295
The Ibex Indie Hoody is really good though. And RailRiders is having a 25% off sale.Oct 7, 2010 at 10:52 am #1652325
I got sick of waiting too and just pulled the trigger on the Ibex 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!Oct 7, 2010 at 11:18 am #1652333

Devold is made in my hometown (not a town actually with only 4000 citizens). They have some pretty light clothes: http://www.devold.comOct 7, 2010 at 10:34 pm #1652545
That is so cool that they make a lightweight longsleeve wool shirt in off white. Just like a Wool 2 but hopefully more durable.Oct 8, 2010 at 2:08 am #1652554

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.Oct 8, 2010 at 4:53 am #1652565

The Devold website doesn't seem to be a retail outlet.
Anyone know of a US source?Oct 8, 2010 at 6:36 am #1652577

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