i think in the olden days they wanted to give women pockets for pills and things like that like back when valium was invented, but they didn't want the pockets to be so big that they couldn't still sell you a purse, or that you didnt still need a man with big pockets to carry some of your stuff. i feel pretty sure that there was some massive conspiracy thats the only thing that makes sense

If you want warmth, I suppose the play is down. But if you intend to be active, then definitely a synthetic insulation. Those jackets mix the two, and that's a garment identity crisis.

i have one that is down all over except in the shouders and the tips of the sleeves closest to your hands i guess the idea being that those are the spots most likely to get wet and that the synthetic stuff there will keep insulating when wet unlike the down

Yes, and does anybody actually go climbing with a jacket that size, like in the commercial picture on the website. Ridonculous. And down... You'd be covered in sweat. And get hypothermia.

Well I reckon I picked up a nuther job mm-hm replacing some deck railing and about sebmmteen eighteen of them ol deck boards mm-hm. Bid the labor at $400 and she'll take me a good four hours or there bout mm-hmm. Bought me the ryobi battery powered five piece combo pack today mm-hm. Got a purty green color to em. Reckon they'll pay for emself in a couple hours. Man needs a good combo pack, mm-hmm *rocks in chair a little and turns head like stevie wonder when singing*

But you cant go super hard with ryobi tools. They're like a step up from craftsman... a homeowners dewalt or mikita, you could say. The trick is to use them less and make more money. Then you sell em on craigslist and upgrade.

Yea, if it gets really cold here.. like it did in the olden days of the 1970s lol, when I were a wee lass, but not necessarily bonny, and before global warming was ‘a thing’, I’ll be getting my snowboarding gear out.

We may not have a harsh Winter though..
