Re: New Guy from Australian Bush

Nice, Orange Watch Company.

I love Australian Bush, especially the straw colored ones. It's almost never dry out there surprisingly.

Re: Down jacket ideas

Hard to beat Uniqlo $60 down jackets using 600 fill real down. They are the BARGAIN leader. Otherwise I would look at Campsaver, Sunnysports, or Steepandcheap for some end of season deals. This thread just indirectly caused me to buy a new Mystery Ranch pack and Patagonia vest from Campsaver. I've ...

If you want a funny read/view, watch one of their way point videos. They feature guys with $5k worth of gear on in fully outfitted Range Rovers braving the "elements" of light rain and wind. After watching one of those videos, I lost all interest in the brand.
Lol, that's pretty cringeworthy .

Re: TAD Triple Aught Designs

Lol nope, I was tricked, from their About Page, it seemed like they were all made here and they sometimes sourced fabric out. On the mobile site, doesn’t seem to indicate made in China, but it seems like they do advertise made in USA, didn’t do an exhaustive run through of all their offerings. Almos...

Re: TAD Triple Aught Designs

I one hundred percent agree it’s for Keyboard Special Forces... addresses the same market that Bremont or JLC seal divers do. At least though they’re all made here.

TAD Triple Aught Designs

Some cool shit made in the USA by veterans and fabrics sourced from US companies. Not all but most.

Liking their Tracer jacket a lot, might get one if I didn’t have about a dozen mid layers already.

Re: Arc’teryx is the shit

My new obsession is Westcomb. They are all former Arcteryx employees who started the brand when they felt that Arc was going too far in the lifestyle direction and away from their roots. Recently picked up their Shift LT shell made from Polartec Neoshell. That said, my last purchase was for a Patago...

Bell & Ross BR02 Phantom

Finally got my hands on it after a MESS with Fedex. Good Lord. Like it so far. It wears actually light compared to my 42mm PO 8500. But it does cover my whole wrist. The box in came with is pretty sweet. Just some initial pics from my iPhone 7plus. https://i.imgur.com/chgmguO.jpg https://i.imgur.com...

You know, I thought so too from pics but when I got to play with one, it actually felt and looked much better in person. For some reason it kind of looks like an Orc in pictures. Gotta agree with Brett, that seems like a winning strategy. I think there are some some brands like Omega who did some mo...

That is fair for that model in mint condition with both straps and pelican case. Does that mean your 8500 didn't cure the itch?

Thought on this massive diver, the Bell & Ross BR02.20? It's freaking HUGE and it's from a almost micro brand but damn if I don't think think it looks pretty damn cool. This is the Phantom model. https://images.europeanwatch.com/images/27/27089-1.jpg https://images.europeanwatch.com/images/27/27089-...

Re: why won't anybody touch Girard Perregaux?

Their current diver looks really nice in person. But feels a little hollow too for some reason.

I think their main issue is they've never designed a watch where it was like, Holy Shit I need this watch. I can't stop thinking about this watch.
