      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Old school Men's Purple Down Jacket

Recommended Posts

pitty.gif(who don't wear purple)

 

 

about 10 months ago, my truck was broken into while i was in squamish... Someone stole my arc'teryx backpack containing lots of winter clothing (i was there doing winter aid)...i've slowly replaced the lot over the summer, and since winter is coming, i can't find a purple down jacket....

 

i need it......it needs to be purple.....call it Superstition...but that jacket has saved my life more than any rope, and i don't do winter/alpine/scrambles without it

 

 

so, i've searched local vancouver shops for old models, gone to afew thrift stores and used sporting goods places, searched many catalogues by rei, mec, marmot, etc etc etc....searched all the big names

 

course, i've found womens models....ahem, i'm 6'3, 190, +5 ape index (a typical mens large)

 

closest thing i've found was an old school patagonia purple micropuff pullover (mens medium) for 20 bucks...hehehehe...but i still need a purple down!period

 

SO!!! DUDES AND DUDETTES...help a brother out, if you know anyone with one they don't want, or you have that you don't want, seen one in a shop, plz let me know

 

 

i'm aboot to call Feathered Friends to see if they can custom one for me.....

 

cheers

Phil...

sorry to hear the news.

I have a climbing partner that has the jacket you describe but he'd never part with it.

Yet another break-in while climbing at squamish.

Oh yeah. In fact, they probably have your coat. Maybe not the one that was taken but one pretty close to it. If not, go the the FF factory and see what they can do. Sometimes they have coats they would never put out on the floor at thier retail store but they might sell it to some poor fool. No offense.

= Your Solution!!!

 

 

Also try e-Bay and maybe check out options for making your own from a kit. You may have more color control that way?

 

I wonder if leaving a note that your car is rigged with a bomb instead of an alarm would stop people from breaking in? "Yeah, it's probably a fake, but what if?" hahaha.gif

GoLite makes a gal's purple down jacket. Sift through their site and maybe you'll be lucky and find a men's version in the same color.

 

Good luck
