    So for warmth - Align MX or Indisce? And the back pockets on the Align MX - are they better than the cargo pockets on the Field pant? I'm not that happy with the Field cargo pockets, even though they have internal organizer pockets.

    Prefferably WTT: Your P30 CH/DS in L, possibly XL, for my P23-TS CH, L, but I’m also up for buying the P30’s from whoever is willing to sell. Hit me up if the P30’s aren’t for you!

    Stumbled over these from Norwegian hiking shoe brand Viking. Not my taste, but I suppose someone here might like them. The logo is an obvious no go, though. Pretty similar to the Bamba’s. https://no.vikingfootwear.com/produkter/menn/invertex-cross

    I always loved the yellow field jacket.

    Is that TecSys and accompanying TecSys compatible pouches on the pants? Or is it some other attachment mechanism?

    Second that. The Sequent isn’t restrictive at all for most movements. The only thing is that, depending on your height, they might be a little short. So it might be a bit uncomfortable to cross your legs or bend your knees extensively when sitting, due to the bottom of the pants slipping up your legs towards your knees. And it might not be the most professional look to have a major gap between the bottom of the pants and the socks when you sit normally, or with legs crossed. Minor gripe, though, and depends on the setting you use them in.

    I might have given off too much of a negative vibe regarding my opinion on the Field pant. I actually really like them, and they might turn out to become one of my favourite pants. I just had some comments on how my own expectations of the garment didn't match the actual garment. I went TTS. And it's not that the pants are that constricting per se, it's more that compared to most of my other pants, which are articulated or wide fitted, I can bend my joints and not notice the limitations of wearing pants. I completely agree that it's not fair to compare the Field pants with wide fitting pants, of course. It's just that it says that they're articulated, but they're really not that articulated. I wasn't expecting anything like the P10A's, or anything, which are super articulated. The only other Veilance pant I own is the Sequent, and it is cut slightly wider in the hips and thighs, but is shorter in length. This makes the bottom of the pants rise up pretty high on my leg when crossing my legs, for example. Regarding the cargo pockets - I have an Iphone 6 plus, which is huge, and the pockets don't accommodate it in the best way. It feels kinda awkward having it in there. But again - it doesn't fit in most other pockets either, so... But coming to think of it, I think most other cargo pockets are built military style on the outside of the facefabric so they can accommodate more stuff and expand. So what I said earlier isn’t quite correct, I think. I guess I just find it a little strange to have such voluminous pockets that aren’t that comfortable filled up.

    Some thoughts on the Field pant: The Field pant is easily the most constricting pair of pants I own in terms of ease of movement. I don't know if that says more about my collection of pants (which consist mainly of Acronym and super wide fitting denim and fatigue pants) or the cut of the Field pants. Allthough it is stated on Veilance page that the cut is articulated, this can't be to a major extent. There aren't any visible seems that point to articulation in the knees that I can find, for example. Regarding the cargo pockets, they are surprisingly big. But it's not that comfortable to fill them up with stuff, seeing that the pockets are 'built in' under the face fabric of the pants. Compared to the Acronym P10A, where the cargo pockets are constructed on to the face fabric of the pants, this makes objects in the Field pant cargo pockets press on the thighs, where the P10As don't have that same problem at all. Maybe it's unfair to compare those pants seeing that the construction of the cargo pockets are that different, but it's something I quickly noticed when first trying the Field pant on. I guess the Field pant 'built in'-style cargo pocket is the most common cargo pocket around, so most pants with cargo pockets offer the same feeling when stuffed. The material is pretty interesting. Allthough I was hoping the knit lining would add some more warmth for the cold winter. The material reminds me of a thinner version of the mainline Gamma AR-pants that I own. Both in handfeel and stretchiness. Visually the pants are super sleek and clean, so they look very on point.

    On a related note - the Monitor coat is awesome. The material is rather stiff, which makes me feel wellprotected from the elements. Combined with the mainline Cerium LT, the word sleeping bag comes to mind, as I remember have been used to describe the feeling of wearing the Monitor Down on here previously. Especially with the hood up. The hood construction is really impressive; it covers almost everything but the eyes when it’s fully cinched. I find the hood adjusters slightly unintuituve, however, so it’s a minor hassle to operate.

    First thoughts on the Sequent pants: Very lightweight with a semi-slim slim cut which allow for movement. They are not restrictive at all. The zippered front pockets weren’t as bad as I feared, and the zipper didn’t scratch unfomcortably on my hands. I’m rather tall at 190 cm (6ft3’’), so the pants are slightly cropped. However, when walking in the rain for half an hour my socks didn’t get wet, so it might not be a problem that they’re cropped. They are a little cold for the present temperature, which fluctuates between 0-5 degrees celsius. They don’t have a warm lining, which explained it. I’m waiting for a pair of field pants which do have fleece lining, so I assume they will be better suited for winter temperatures. More importantly - I’m now fully waterproof with a Monitor coat, Sequent pants and Goretex shoes. My dream has come true.
  13. Word. This is beyond impressive. Wow.
