Just saw this story on Outside magazine's blog: Outside Magazine Blog

Will you buy BD clothing?  Do you think it'll be along the lines of Arc'teryx or lower price?

I already have BD clothing, specifically Mercury mitts.  I guess their existing products aren't helpful in the sales narrative over their new outerwear.

too early to tell.  so far, my primary interest in BD has continued to be hardware - carabiners, ice axes, etc.  

i like a company giving Schoeller a wider platform for its stretch/soft shell fabrics in a space that I think tends to be dominated by Polartec in the US.  

most of the innovation sounds like things that are already occuring in the industry.  for example, they mention a body-mapped soft shell, a hybrid of various types of Schoeller fabric that includes their temperature-sensitive "c change" waterproof soft shell fabric.  The Westcomb Revenant is a hybrid eVent/Schoeller c change jacket, but same basic idea.  never seen that revenant anywhere - i wonder if a lot of people are buying into the hybrid/patchwork concept in outer shells.  

Another is that they mention nanosphere, the Schoeller tech that supposedly makes it harder for garments to stain.  best i can say about that is my nanosphere-treated Feathered Friends down vest, which i wear a lot, has multiple stains.

I thought of this for some reason when I saw this. But I may be overdosing  on cough meds and flu meds

That's not very high-end.  It doesn't even have a logo.

If it's made from Carbon Fiber, I'm all over it . . . replace the stock lines with fishing line to save some ounces . . .
