@jenmitolLocale: In my dreams....
How many days in a row can I wear this amazing piece of heaven before I ruin it?? I never, ever want to take it off……Jan 15, 2013 at 10:44 am #1944055
I agree and because of its design it doesn't look too technical to wear as regular casual-wear and get much more use out of it too.
Shame they've toned down the men's colours to lots of dull ones this year though.
My red/burgundy one is great and I'd have bought another for this winter in tangerine, if they still did it……Jan 15, 2013 at 11:29 am #1944067
If they made a jacket version, I would have bought one long ago.Jan 15, 2013 at 11:37 am #1944072
I feel the same way about my new cap 4 hoody!Jan 15, 2013 at 12:32 pm #1944096

They are quite durable. I have hundreds of days in mine and no stretching out of shape or seam issues.
It is something I wear any time the temperature allows it.
I wear it as my top layer in cool weather and as a mid layer in the cold.
I suspect the Cap4 has similar wear specs, made out of similar materials.Jan 15, 2013 at 2:42 pm #1944134
I wear mine almost daily to go to gym early in morning when its cold
I suspect that the elbows will wear thru first given how thin the material is.
I know it has less thickness than when it was new
Its my favorite clothing article I have ever owned.Jan 15, 2013 at 5:45 pm #1944177
I've wanted an R1 Hoody. I even found them 30% off. Still too much.
So I bought an REI hoody- stretchy, smooth exterior, thumloops, pullover. It was on closeout last year so no point in remembering the name. It's nice. So nice that I wear it every day downhill skiing.
But I wanted another. Then I found some at Sierra Trading Post. Terramar thumloop, full zip, grid fleece hoody. Women's model only. The Men's counterpart is pullover, no thumbloops, much less fitted hood. So bought W's for wife, daughter, and myself plus a M's for me. The M's wasn't it. Too baggy, no thumbloops, big hood that wouldn't work under a helmet very well. W's is perfect. I normally buy men's M, but am often pushing the limit of that size now that I'm in the high 180 pound range and 5'10" (I was in great shape 20 pounds ago. W's L is perfect size. Unlike many Women's jackets, this is long, with long sleeves. In fact the hem is lower than the men's M I ordered. Weighs 13.8 oz.
Best part? $25 using a 30% off/ $0.99 shipping email deal.
Sadly for you guys- L is now sold out- but if you're interested check back often as Sierra Trading Post seems to keep opening new crates of the same gear.
