doing a bit of market research: what's the most you'd be willing to pay for
... a waterproof coat/jacket, if it was the ultimate 3-season school run coat = waterproof, breathable (technical fabrics not boil-in-the-bag pvc!), long enough to cover your arse, looks smart enough to potter around town in but performs equally well when walking the dogs in pouring rain. thx
that's what I mean - not fashion but something that you'll wear for years. With outdoor clothing you get what you pay for so I was just interested to find out how important is quality and durability vs price
I think my arcteryx shell jacket was about 200 ish I have had it for nearly 5 yrs and it is still in very good condition the cut is very flatterring. Along with my north face puffer body warmer thing they are the most used jackets I have
I expect a lot from my outdoor clothing. I have 2 Patagonia jackest that are 10 and 6 years old. Only bought the younger one as the first one is dark grey and people could not see me when I was skiing.
