    MiCol, are the weights listed for the jackets anywhere?

    Specifically interested in the weights for the Antero II Plus (regular) and the Antero II Plus Light Touring jackets. I'm typically a large, but need to measure and see if medium is the call.

    Wearing my Bross as I type...

    cool!
    LTE = Size Large weighs 475 grams

    my estimate on Non LTE would be maybe +100 grams size large, but not 100% on this

    Freeride Systems outerwear

    Iíve got that red fleece midlayer from years ago. I need another one but made of fire resistant fleece. Itís got the only hood I can find that fits under or over my hard hat at work. Itís getting burn holes in it though.

    I've got an original red one too, but with full zip. Maybe a year newer than yours? What size do you wear?

    ^ that's a rain jacket with no insulation. He has a custom made to measure winter (softshell) with zip in Polartec 200, wonder where it is? maybe his weight has changed....whatever the case, in this pic he is wearing an uninsulated 2L fabric with mesh interior...rain jacket, so layering is probably a good idea.....

    Just got my first Freeride Systems jacket and it feels like an amazing product. Really impressed with build quality. Canít wait to get out in it.

    Inbounds shell?

    Hello all newbie herein need of a new shell for mostly inbounds/lift since my vintage flylow Higgins shel is losing its wind resistance.

    I traditionally prefer a light shell with tighter base and mid layer but starting to get old and a bit colder. So maybe something a bit heavier with a touch of insulation. Would be too bad

    So would appreciate any thoughts..thinking the Antero 2 soft shell would be the go to inbounds recommendations but appreciate any opinions

    The Antero II Plus hardshell is much lighter than the softshell. I ski with one and layer as needed down into pretty low temps.
    Pay attention the the sizing info too.

    Any PNW mags able to comment on the performance of the Antero II+ or Antero III in our nicely damn climate? Looking at the Antero III as a touring/sledding jacket.

    Also, anyone able to comment on fit? Currently in a 7 year old Arcteryx Alpha SV in a size medium (5-11/190). I have a hard time believing a size small will be long enough in the torso and arms, though the website suggests sizing down.

    Down sizing is the truth. Wear XL everything, and got one XL piece and I kinda swim in it. Large fits me great with room to spare.

    I where a medium in everything. 5’ 10” 175. A medium was too short (especially with no powder skirt) medium tall fits well although slimmer than my Patagonia stuff. I can’t imagine you in a small.

    This is the Freeride Systems jacket I scored at the BBI19 auction. Unbelievable performance at work during the last two weeks here in Squaw Valley for the Spartan Race world championship. Weathered a gnarly winter storm last weekend in it, and it was amazing. Props to you, MiCol. Good shitClick image for larger version.

    Is there gonna be a 2+ with stretch?
    Presumably one day my Cloudveil RPK will actually die.
    No longer stuck.

    Had a run in with a tree on New Yearís Day. The branches won and I have a dime/nickel sized tear in the sleeve of my ANTERO 3 POLARTEC NEOSHELL HARDSHELL+ STRETCH TOURING SKI JACKET LEMON.
    What is the standard repair for this material? Gortex patch? Aqua seal? The tear is triangular, and I think it will patch well. Not concerned with appearance - just looking for the best method for continued performance/water proof ness.

    Bump
    Standing in line at Mt Bachelor today, started chatting with a random guy on Kartels (I'm on Wrens)
    After a minute or so he looks at me and asks "Are you TBS?"
    "Uh...Yea...How did you know?"
    "From your (Antero II) jacket"

    I think I deserve some sort of spokesmodel fee...

    sorry ive missed some questions...subscription to control panel??? not email.....

    to all PNW's: we have a bunch of jackets up there....pretty sure they are working...

    caledoniasoul: yes antero 2 are great inbound jackets...but can be used bc in cold temps....a bit of stretch gives extra mobilty and insulations makes this nice n toasty but still pushes moisture out of jacket....membraned and fully taped....

    wwwllw: yes, long torso's need our talls when sized medium, same with smalls....we always try to ask (cs supposed to) about a measurements from base of neck, down back to bottom of belt line, and pants inseam...this helps us make the recommendation before shipping...sometimes we miss it when its a borderline case...

    NW_SKIER: great pic!!

    stuckathuntermtn: idk maybe...closest to that right now is to go with the Antero 2 softshell, or Lemon Antero 3...(sold out) ....we have like 2 retailers and at this point in season (our inventory is super depleted) might be good to go to bottom of our website page and find retail phone number call and ask...i would not call japan lol....they only have black and hardshell and those jackets have all be made specifically to the distributors needs....(diff than usa) so be aware...

    shafty85: i think we were helping with this....did you get a care package? how did it go?

    skidog: thanks for that ABC news pic! good catch

    TBS: from scott at on3p right? haha, jk, taken under advidasment....but, we only have like $37 to spread around on our spansered athletes annually...so we have to be discerning...
