« on: February 19, 2007, 03:42:31 pm »
may 08 trans-am torso set up:
1x marmot silkweight ss crew
1x "               " ls crew
1x marmot precip jacket or columbia "fast & light" jacket
and 1x ibex shak wool "sweater" OR western mountaineering flash down vest.Both are $125 but have vastly different properties, any thoughts?

i'd stay away from down for bike ridin'. you'll get way way too hot. stay with wool. you'll be way better off. and you don't have to worry about wool gettin' wet. down is useless when wet as you probably know.

i have some ibex stuff. it's good.
