I might be able to make a jacket but I don’t think there is enough for a bivy as I am 6’4″.
The problem is I can’t really sew and there really is no one in my town. Is there a person out there that will sew custom work. I mainly just want a simple hooded jacket. Thank you.Nov 7, 2020 at 10:05 am #3682816
Thank you Link and Edward. Decisions, decisions.Nov 7, 2020 at 10:00 am #3682814
Thank you everyone.Nov 6, 2020 at 3:45 pm #3682720
No, thank you, I did not know about them.Nov 6, 2020 at 2:01 pm #3682693
Nice for Custom. I wonder if they can get the 120gsm material but probably not. 10week delay is a bit of time :)Nov 6, 2020 at 12:33 pm #3682684
How much does the 90g Senchi Hoody cost? And what might an XL weigh? Thank you.Nov 6, 2020 at 8:21 am #3682636
That looks nice at 7oz. Too bad I need an XXL ;).Oct 7, 2020 at 12:55 pm #3678713
I mainly use my OR Ascendent Hoody for around town and as more of a midlayer.Aug 26, 2020 at 11:47 am #3673149
Thanks. I will probably go with a 50/50 long sleeved thin dress shirt then. Everything else looks pretty non-breathable.Aug 26, 2020 at 9:33 am #3673114
I have tried many hiking pants over the last decade but I still use my REI Sahara pants from over 10 years ago. I find them durable and breathable enough, they have a built in belt and they have a CROTCH GUSSET which is one of the best things ever made. You can buy them use don eBay for $20-$30 shipped. They should be the ones with the tag the same color as the pants, a black and white REI logo on the left side, Three lines of text in the middle with a Made in China in the middle and then the size over the length.Aug 26, 2020 at 9:25 am #3673110
I have a SOL Escape Bivy that I have turned into a quilt. Probably just as warm or warmer than the others. Weighs less. Will cut wind and light moisture. It can get a bit clammy inside if it is warm but with it as a quilt I can vent.Aug 26, 2020 at 8:52 am #3673098
What would people think about the OR Echo Hoody, too thin?May 29, 2020 at 2:01 pm #3649937
Ended up getting a Haglofs Pile Hoody and going to try that out.May 21, 2020 at 11:12 pm #3648565
Microfleece, already have that for 1/5 the price. Where is some deep shag pile?May 20, 2020 at 8:16 pm #3648421
Yeah, pretty much non of them are. I was looking for something a bit more than my MH Microchill but I will just keep using it.May 5, 2020 at 10:09 am #3645207
Thank you.Apr 28, 2020 at 7:27 am #3643579
Yes, this for the original with condensation liner and freestanding pole.Mar 16, 2020 at 11:48 am #3636190
Thank you!Mar 16, 2020 at 8:01 am #3636155
Okay, thank you.Mar 12, 2020 at 1:47 pm #3635493
I think the Adahy Hoody would be like the MH MicroChill Lite fleece but that with the MH the microfleece is on the outside. Is it possible to get some more pics of what the fabric looks like on the inside and outside? Thank you.
There are not many large ascents or descents beyond a few hundred feet around here but there always seems to be wind and lots of light precip now that it rarely snows. I find I don’t want anything more breathable than the Ascendant because some of those winds when it is 25mph+ get really cold. And if I get too warm I can always just open up the zippers on the hoody. But yeah, most of this stuff is based on the environment and the person.Mar 11, 2020 at 10:27 am #3635278
Thanks for the information. I guess I will look at these if it ever comes down in price as $100 is a bit much for a fleece baselayer top.Mar 8, 2020 at 9:34 am #3634817
Thank you Michael. I believe I have a Ascendant Nimbus also in the XXL. I find it keeps me warm enough down to about freezing while just walking and wearing an Echo T under an Echo long sleeve. I would probably not go more breathable since it tends to stop most of the wind we have here on the plains and does repel light rain.
As for 97 is seems that an XXL would run about 6.6oz and maybe a bit more to fix the hood. I wonder how the sizing is to cover my 6’4″, 225# frame? I am interested in it but from some people’s comments it does seem a bit fragile and for about 2.4 oz more I get a full zip with my MH Microchill lite full zip (once you remove the pockets) which is not fragile, has a full zip and looks to be a bit warmer. Not trying to knock the 97, just seeing where it fits in. Thank you.Mar 7, 2020 at 9:31 pm #3634776
I would agree, I still have my MicroChill Lite full zip hoody.Mar 7, 2020 at 9:02 pm #3634770
Okay, been off the site awhile. How is the Peloton 97 different than a OR Echo Hoody since they are about the same weight? It looks like the 97 might be a bit thicker. Also I have a OR Ascendant Hoody initial release in XXL that was an REI variant that was a bit more weather resistant but a slight bit less breathable (30d I think). How does that stack up against the Marmot 60 which I think is a bit thinner and the Strafe Alpha Direct? Thank you.
And yes, I wish they made OR (or anyone else) Echo Hoodies with a quarter zip in white in XXL.Oct 2, 2019 at 1:33 pm #3612394
I have a jacket in it so I could always try to send that.
