One thing I am noticing on the Nows are the orange bushings. Hoping they made some that are even softer than the whites.

So what's up with this Cocona fabric? Anyone mind explaining it? Was browsing through that EasyLoungin thread.

The stuff works. Not sure of the science behind it but I wore it snowshoeing today and up top I had a pretty basic Burton dry-ride polo and gore-tex shell that got pretty sweated up. For bottoms I had a pair of the Homeschool lounger pants and some North Face cargos and they stayed bone dry and warm.

But I don't get what it does. It's supposed to be used as a hyper efficient insulation layer? Which piece was cocona?

It can used as base layer or in the jacket/pants as well. I have a base layer pant made from it. It is more its superior wicking and breatheablity qualities that are notable more than its insulating although it isn't bad for that especially since it keeps you so dry.

Launch Bindings

Found a video on Youtube for some interesting bindings. I've never heard of this company before, but these bindings look pretty good.

More moving parts = more weight and more flex, still have to do up straps. Looks like the only benefit is that it holds the straps out of the way for you? I don't get it...

So it's base OR insulation? Or it replaces both. Now I'm going to read more on this.

How do they look good besides having a stupid gimmick? This is your first post? SHILL. Especially since it has 119 views, you just happened to stumble across this? it looks like a bad design. It looks like they just basically did the same shit Rome does with the 390 but instead of minimizing the moving parts (rubber band on the strap to keep it open) they created a moving base..which seems incredibly likely to get frozen in inclimate weather. As we all know ice tends to accumulate around the base plate.
