I was a big “water margin” fan in my youth...
Despite being forbidden from watching it for allegedly being too violent, I must have somehow managed to wangle enough collective sneak peaks to have memory traces that the rabbit hole eventually dug up as Monkey! The Priest Goes Off Piste: was this a first high stealth camp? I'm not quite sure what to think about feeling absurdly pleased by this discovery except for noticing once again that nostalgia has such a compelling bias: Magic
Likewise, for one of my birthdays a few years ago, my brother got me the whole series of Monkey... including the ones that remained in Japanese.
It's actually odder than I remembered. One scene involves someone chasing Monkey and his cloud whilst pedalling on a bicycle on a different cloud and shooting cloud stuff like a WWI dogfighter.
Anyway it looks like Alpkit has now got its version of a plile and pertex smock
It looks like the side zips might extend under the arms to be pitzips (unlike Buffalo/Montane etc which are just side zips). Not 100% clear, and strangely omitted from the product video.
It would be a plus point for me.
And a zip on hood rather than velcro ...
Yes I was a bit unclear about the ventilation. And grr. I failed to spot the its/it's mess up... until you preserved it for me.
Still missed the "plile" though.
Loved Monkey Magic btw!
GramXpert insulated trousers https://www.gramxpert.eu/product/apex-pants/
Gutted... Would have preferred these in the most part, instead of my omm raid pant.... But they win out on practicality. I might get some of these, just to try though. Cheers for the link
I’ve got a pair of As Tucas Sestrals trousers (Apex 67) which have been fab. I might get a pair of these in Apex 100, although Apex 67 is pretty warm.
158g, Barely any heavier than a pair of baselayer long johns, very tempted by something like this going forward. Got to see my Apex 100 thermal wrap/ skirt / quilt sealer MYOG project works out first though...
While on the subject of quilts, saw a vid this morning, and can't for the life of me find it again, where a French guy shows how to wear a quilt inside your outer jacket, tried it out earlier, and it's brilliant! Can anyone remind me where I can find the video / link to please?
This is the way.
Sure it wasn't coverage of Paris Fashion Week?
You look very cheery!
