686 Smarty Truckee.
Totally in love with the design and color(Army). Way too expensive to afford right now(350!!) but I'm guessing within a year I could pick one up cheap/used. That's pretty much me though, I'm always wearing the outerwear I liked of 1-2 seasons ago because its the only way I can afford to get them lol.

I always see stuff like this posted here about Grenade. I have no experience with their stuff. What makes it garbage, other than the way it looks?
Looks are a matter of taste - some like the Grenade style, so do not. Bigger problem is that most of their stuff is cheaply made and tends to fall apart quickly. The gear is also not smartly designed (pockets often do not make sense, etc.).
Finally, many people have an issue with the brand - it was originally set up by Danny Kass and his brother Matt. Then there was a fairly acrimonious split-up that created a lot of bad blood. The perception these days is basically that Grenade is just trying to make a quick buck of people who do not know any better.

More days than not, this was my "jacket" of choice...



Wore it way more times than my new black 686 Command. In fact, I don't even think I wore my jacket in feb, mar, or apr.

if your willing to get over the price (and hell it is well worth the price). consider last years volcom mark landvik 3L jacket. its the best jacket ive ever owned. ok maybe not the best. 2nd only to the patagonia pow slayer. but that this is like professionally expensive.

wasn't it soaking wet at the end of the day??? There is no way i could wear a hoodie.
Not usually, we don't really get pow, and when we do, is tracked out early. I stand when I strap in, so n not much chance of really even getting snow on it. :D

Thanks for the tip... given your history of advice, I will be avoiding this one. :giggle:
