No crags here, I can't even wear my Schoeller stuff to class 'cause nobody knows what it is. And chicks don't dig it if you ask them to feel your clothes (especially pants).
I got an Ibex Icefall about three years ago. The stretch and water-resistance are excellent. The material is Ski-fans. It has a wool lining (soft) and is warm by itself down to the 40's. Most breathable jacket I have ever worn. It seems like there is a lot of extra sticthing on it (around cuffs and elbows) but have not had a frayed seam yet . Compresses down to nothing. I have worn it cycling (couple of falls, only pride hurt), skiing (midweight capilene top and jacket good to about 30 degrees), and chasing Fourteeners in Colorado. I don't take a hard shell in my daypack anymore. I like the sleeve closures, velcro and elastic, don't have to undo velcro every time putting on jacket.
I bought a Cloudveil Serendipity (Schoeller Dryskin) on sale last year. XL runs a little large compared to the Ibex. The extra long sleeves works for you ice climbers but it just adds dry time for us peak baggers when sleeves get wet. Huge pockets carry a lot but can't warm your hands . Feels a little bulkier than the Ibex but not as warm. Water resistance not as good either.
I ordered a pair of the Mammut Courmayeur pants from Climb High, can't wait.
Has anyone tried a DWR spray for any of these jackets? I had to reDWR my Patagonia Direct X after about 6 mos. use.
And yes, I am probably that fat guy you see rubbing all the gear.
