Re: Seaforth preorders tomorrow 1/18

He makes a very nice looking watch, but this is just another reason I will not do preorders. If you want my money it better be in stock before I pay. I realize this is hard for most micro brands, but there are too many other watches to try, so why put up with the drama. I agree re preorders and gen...

Re: Seaforth preorders tomorrow 1/18

So much speculation and vitriol on the IG thread about whether he will honor the orders that went through or not. It’d be cool if I get one, but seriously not the end of the world if not.

Some people take this shit way too personally. Unfortunately the sense of entitlement isn’t surprising.

I am not sure if it's any worse than this.

halioswatches: An Official Statement, and in no way an attempt at defensiveness, only a sequence of events. I stated that orders were closed, and they were. To test the cart and site, we had to open up the connectivity because it is a cloud-hosted cart (it will not connect on a local host). This wa...

Re: Seaforth preorders tomorrow 1/18

It was down for me. You were actually going to order one? Yes, and then immediately sell it on IG! If my order actually goes through, I figure this is as close to a guarantee to not lose money on the flip as you'll ever see and I wouldn't mind checking one out. I did get an email confirmation from ...

Re: Seaforth preorders tomorrow 1/18

Weird, I was just able to add one to my cart, went through the check-out process, and it bounced me back out saying my cart was empty after I clicked "submit". I thought I got really lucky.

At this point it may just be better to sell them via a lottery type system.

Re: Down jacket ideas

Wild Things Gear (https://www.wildthingsgear.com/) is a legit, high quality military supplier. They revolutionized the alpine clothing/gear industry back in the early 80's and then went full military contract only several years ago for cold weather systems. I think they only supply to special forces...

Re: Seaforth preorders tomorrow 1/18

I think that was Strider. But yeah, the IG comments are very funny. One guy was pissed because he took a vacation day for the preorder. Yea, Strider. Thanks Anyone got a paraphrased version of that story? Anything I ever tried to read was really long and drawn out. Claimed he was a ranger and comba...

Re: Down jacket ideas

Best to try them on if at all possible. They are designed as a belay jacket, so they are cut very roomy. My version is appropriately huge in a medium since it is meant to go over three or four other layers very easily. The one Jacob linked to is the newer version that they slimmed down a bit (there...

Re: Down jacket ideas

How does down compare to PrimaLoft? Primaloft is synthetic. It's impossible to keep all the names straight: http://www.primaloft.com/insulation I'm wearing some version of primaloft right now. It's not very compressible and it's heavy. Fine for a mid layer, but not sure about a jacket made of it. I...

Re: Down jacket ideas

How does down compare to PrimaLoft? Primaloft is heavier, but in my experience just as warm if it is their premiere fill (Gold, used to be called One). My belay jack is Primaloft since in the NE the winters are wet and as mentioned you don't want down getting soaked. You could dunk a Primaloft (or ...

Re: Down jacket ideas

Feathered Friends is nice but it seems like all of their coats are puffy looking ones and barely cover the butt. Canada Goose is my preference YMMV Surprisingly few of these jackets cover anything between your butt and knee. I guess when you're all suited up for serious shit you don't need the extr...

Re: Seaforth preorders tomorrow 1/18

Still can’t decide between blue or yellow dive bezel? I saw them in person at Worn & Wound NYC. The yellow is VERY yellow, and glossy. If you wouldn't buy a Doxa Orange then you wouldn't buy the Seaforth Yellow. The Blue can be worn with anything. The yellow looks awesome in photos. Not a Doxa Yell...
