    Anyone here have experience with the Arc’teryx Bora2 Mids?

    Would definitely recommend the Arcteryx cerium(down) or Atom(coreloft). Cerium is warmer than the Atom, but both are killer pieces. They come in different models - Allround(AR), light(LT) or superlight(SL), which differ in weight, warmth, face fabric(different denier=different durability), composite construction (the cerium models differ on whether they have down all over or coreloft at strategic places such as the shoulders and hood, the Atom on whether it has more breathable material along the sides of the torso and under the armpits) and with or without a hood. I would, however, dare to say that the models will be equally durable in urban environments. Seeing that you are looking for a jacket under a shell, I’d go for one of the lighter models. The LT models are the go to jackets in my environments, but it all depends on how cold it is. The cerium can compress into a tiny pocket and the 2017-model has some new pocket configurations and cinches at the waist. Comparing the Cerium LT with the Atom LT, the cerium will be warmer and can be compressed more, while the Atom will be more breathable.

    Holy shit - I’ve been waiting for years for waterproof goretex pants to come. If you have seen any pics - how does the fit/ silhouette look like?

    Damn. That’s a shame. I take it you know that from personal experience with the jacket? Do you know if it’s a well known problem regarding the construction, like the crotch tears on the Veilance pants, or might you have been an unlucky cat with a bad sample?

    Anyone here have any experience with the Arcteryx Mainline Rico shacket? Looks like a pretty dope down filled shirt jacket, which imo looks way cooler than the Cerrium. Apropriate for urban cold weather condition as well as more outdorsy stuff. Am I right or not?

    I ended up buying the Lexdray Dubai Travel Case, which is now almost half the price that it used to be due to the company restructuring their sales strategy from wholesale to web sales on their website. A bit on the larger side, but it can be worn on it’s own with the handle and seems to be made out of quality materials.

    Wow. Really fascinated by the Naglev Unico. How are their water-shedding properties? I live in one of Europes most rainy citys, so I'm always on the look out for quality water proof shoes.

    Thanks for the tip. It's mostly EDC stuff like chargers, cables, pens, etc. I've of course googled and found som alternatives, amongst them grid-it, but was wondering if anyone here had some more sleek and techy alternatives than the ones I've found, which are more mil-spec styled.

    Whaddup, guys. I'm finding that my backpacks doesn't have enough pockets for organizing my stuff. Do any of you have some tips for some cool organization pouches. Plus for sleek design. Thanks!

    So I just got my hands on the nomin pack. To all long time owners - how will the outer face fabric fare over time? Will it retain it's colour, or will it scratch and discolour easily?

    Haha, no worries at all! I meant it when I said thanks for taking your time to comment:)

    Thanks for taking your time and giving advice. As I said previously, I was blown away by the build and construction quality when I checked out the Visvim pack. But thinking about it; as I'm going to Tokyo in June, I might just wait until I get there to cop. The Visvim pack is a bit cheaper in Japan, as far as I can tell, and then I can check out the Lexdray in person, as well. And get a more hands-on comparison. But yeah, I'd assume it would be hard to beat the Visvim pack. So I'm definitely leaning towards that one.

    Any owners of the Lexdray Boulder pack who would care to comment on it's functionality and durability? It more or less looks like a cheaper version of the Visvim Lamina, but with more organizer pockets and in that way seems more functional. Seems like the construction and material used is high quality.

    Amen! Although the 3rd arm bags can fit a hell of a lot, it's a pain to wear with too much weight in it. At first I was kinda grumpy; how can a bag this expensive be this uncomfortable under semi-heavy load? But then I tried it with lighter loads, and that's when it shines. It's awesome with light loads. So now it's time to hustle up and buy an equally expensive backpack
