  1. I'm debating that right now, as of right now i have TNF steep tech apogee for extreme cold, and both a maroon/varsity red and blk/blk mountain light shell for more casual things. I'm thinking do i really need 4 TNF's? perhaps i'll sell one of the shells and cop the dot shot or i'll just keep em and opt for the ecwcs. decisions decisions.

    riff if it's not too much to ask, do you have any fit pics you can post with either one?

    The only pics I could find....The TNF is on the left, EWCWS on the right. The TNF hits at the hip, whereas the ECWCS is a slightly longer parka. My medium TNF fits smaller than most of the US North Face. The ECWCS is a size small. Hope this helps!

    who has info on this? plz halp!

    The Dot Shot is a sweet jacket. I have a couple of colorways of the Scoop - a slightly heavier duty jacket, also released for the Japanese market:

    Both the Dot Shot & the Scoop have a new camo pattern released every couple of years.

    But halomunkey has a good point - if you can find the ECWCS goretex parka in your size, they have a good fit & can be had for minimal $$$.


  3. Roy6, almostnice & cash - killing it with your posts!

    Robbie, dr heech - denimz are looking good!

    I've been out of town in meetings all week, and now we're enjoying the long weekend. Have some stuff to catch up on but will have to do it later....

  5. Take care of yourself TV! Sounds like a nasty one coming...

    Petermumun - beautiful place!

    Xpost from RxC....

    Small recap of the week… The RxC on month 8 - no washes since the initial one…..

    I decided to let them air out a couple of days ago, while a buddy & I went for a "short" training ride. It was pouring rain, and we figured we'd only do 40-50km… But we were feeling good, and we looped from the west-end, down to the lakeshore, out towards the east end, then north to the top of the GTA & back west... 120+km....

    We were heading north in Scarborough right during rush hour, so we decided to get off the main roads and onto side streets…. Bad idea. Little cul-de-sacs, one way roads - wasted quite a chunk of time. I should have brought the Garmin - first world problems :rolleyes:

    Of course, after I got home, sopping wet, the sun came out!

    But the weather has been weird lately, to say the least. This past Sunday, a town in Ontario was flattened by a tornado, and this day was strange as well.

    The air became heavy again, and massive lightning storms broke out. Heck of a light show!

    The next day was gorgeous, and we headed out for some day hiking at Rattlesnake Point.

    This is one of my favourite parts of the Bruce Trail - very rugged and beautiful, with cliffs for climbing & caves for exploring.

    The trailhead starts out easily enough…

  9. "Let the poor and suppressed breast be free"

    Personally, I wholeheartedly agree & you deserved that award! ;):)

    LandoCal126 began the underwear talk and Shubha is expanding upon her answers to LandoCal126's questions. Now, what if we happen to be wearing denim underwear? (I'm being silly!)

    Check out the Roy X Cone thread - we're pretty close :D

    Glad this thread is so entertaining of late!


  10. ^ Looks like you're making good headway with the repairs Finn!

    Xpost from RxC - I'm in catch-up mode - first chance I've had to edit thru some recent stuff.

    We went with friends to visit Black Creek Pioneer Village, a massive tract where life in Canada's pioneering days is re-created in painstaking detail. The "town" has all of the typical businesses that would have existed then, including tinsmiths, milliners, shoe/bootmakers, leather smiths, etc. We literally couldn't visit them all in one afternoon, but I'm sure we'll be back to catch the rest!

    All of the folks who work there are in period-correct clothing, which is manufactured on the premises.

    The ever popular wagon ride - the horse is a Clydesdale.

    The mill, where the flour is milled for the bread that can be purchased at the bakery.

    That afternoon, they had a dance - timing was good, because the skies suddenly got dark, and we had a massive thunderstorm - good thing that we were in a covered area!
