      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!

Thanks for looking in Bill. The blog review was on the Patagonia "Sun Hoody" which costs $65 retail. It is the little brother of the R1. The R1 hoody was mentioned in passing as another good piece of gear :)

MEC makes some outstanding gear. Haven't seen the $62 piece and it may compare well to the R1 which retails for the silly price of $150!!! Even at the typical $90 on line sale price the R1 is no steal.

 

But I do like the style of pull over. MEC hoody is a must see. Thanks for the link Drew.

Got one myself, really happy with it.

This thread popped up on the blog stats a minute or so ago. Thought I'd give a shout out for the SAG Khushi hoodie. No question my favorite hoody currently but it is extremely lwt weight and not intended to replace the MEC version or the R1.

 

And again at $90, may be a good value for Merino wool but no give away either.
