    FWIW the Bragi wireless earphones attach tightly to the forcelock and they are waterproof to boot. Is that enough to make anyone switch from airpods?

    start with warmer base layers. I got swayed to idea by Outlier's airspace. I took a look at Brynje's merino mesh and tried Patagonia's merino air. The real game changer though was Uniqlo's heattech ultra warm introduced last year: that ad was only a mild exaggeration. My cheat code this season has been layering the heattech. I've worn — without any jacket! — an ultra warm under an extra warm turtleneck comfortably in -5°c (low 20s°f) outside yet not overheating when back indoors. Or size up on an ultra warm and wear that as a sweater. It's -15°c (single digits °f) so I've added a jacket but still no need for any down/primaloft/alpha insulation yet. Heattech ultra warm is really in a class of its own. Uniqlo claims heattech has feature parity with wool too i.e. anti-odor, moisture wicking etc. There's few excuses for everyone not to try 'em.

    Well there's Wolf & Shepherd which has been worn to win a marathon. It'll wear down eventually too but it can be resoled. Oh they don't only offer dress shoes; they make a lace-up boot now and the chelsea boot could work with some fits. I assume you're running for exercise/fun and not competitive reasons... Otherwise, as appleseed recommended, just buy regular running shoes

    Could you expand more on your Haeden thoughts? I don't think the short thick insulated Veilance jackets look good, especially those with thin/no hoods. Also I don't like the sleeves that long

    This past summer season Maple offered the lightest weight ventile 5 panel cap I seen so far. Decent for rain. There are various versions of the loro piana storm system baseball cap (with hidden earflaps). Good for cold.

    What happened to the pullover?

    I know the tradition but Veilance seems to be designed differently... And there are no visible buttons so you could get away with it, no? In that model picture from Haven you can see the creases from only using one snap... Branespload, would you mind taking some pictures of the various configurations?

    While wearing your Veilance Blazers/Long Coats (LT, Doeln, Haedn etc) do you fasten all the sliding snaps or only the top one?

    SRULI RECHT DESIGNS GROUNDBREAKING LEATHER AT ECCO "1) How did the idea for Dyneema® Leather come up? It all began with a pair of gloves in a skiing store in Steamboat, Colorado early 2014. These gloves didn’t’ fit in this place… they were a-temporal. It’s like they had been designed in an alternate timeline and somehow fell back into our own. I traced the designer, couldn’t help myself. Found him, demanded friendship, and being Canadian, he obliged my advances. Conroy Nachtigall had been designing with Arc’teryx and Veilance up until then and we began throwing around ideas for advanced material concepts and applications..."
