Vasque Trail Shoes, Merrell hiking boots, Nike Air trail shoes, Patagonia gloves.
Is it just about "image" or does this brand name stuff really wear better? I'm liking the fit and feel too.
I've had the pleasure of testing this Brooks Range Cirro Jacket. I drove over 6,500 miles, worked and played in the Grand Tetons, and used this jacket nearly nonstop.
It still looks wonderful. Once the zipper got caught on the ultralight fabric, and I used chap stick to lubricate it. Then, ever so gently, I slid it back in place.
Its funny, but people also seem to respect the Name. You can wear it with pride knowing you have great gear.
