What are the weights of your hoodies? You know how important that is to us on BPL….. ThxJan 9, 2019 at 9:49 am #3572268
Yes, of course. Please see weights below. I will have the weight of the base layers end of this month since we ran out of stock we are waiting on the new one.

Am I reading this as …..
644 grams for the medium 420 hoodie?
545 grams for the medium 230 hoodie?
ThxJan 9, 2019 at 7:05 pm #3572337
The base layers 230 g/m2 hoodie have not been weighed yet since the new stock is coming end of this month.
For the 420 hoodie medium, it is 644 grams. Sorry for the confusion. I hope this helps.
Please let me know if you more questions.Jan 10, 2019 at 3:00 pm #3572543CARLOS C.Member

I understand the appeal but just think you may be one the wrong site. this is BPL.Jan 10, 2019 at 11:14 pm #3572619stenslat .Member
This post is useful for hunting BPL people like myself. Until someone makes quiet puffy stuff, alpaca fiber might be lightest insulation option for hunting. In addition to being warmer than other wool, the non-stink factor means I can buy fewer items and bring fewer items on long backcountry hunts.
The BPL factor would be if someone else made a 420g alpaca fiber shirt that was lighter due to more efficient construction, but 575 grams does not sound bad for a large long sleeve shirt with 420g material. I’m going to try one.Jan 11, 2019 at 9:29 am #3572674
Hi Carlos, what site would you recommend?Jan 15, 2019 at 5:16 pm #3573228CARLOS C.Member

Like the above said. Hunters, Bushcrafters, hammock campers. Basically people less worried about every gram and ounce. I think some people here that are multisport would be more interested, but for the diehard people this wont be very drawing due to the weights. Still interesting for sure and i will be watching where it goes in the future.
If you look at the base layers in the gear list section of this site you will see what i mean.Jan 20, 2019 at 3:30 am #3573939toddMember
