It seems that this particular conflict is most assuredly forming along forum lines, with the trads on the "NEVER" side and the others on the "sometimes" side. I however am quite happy to wear my red laced shoes with my 3/2 sack.
I'm looking for and odd jacket for summer and I was wondering if anyone had any particularly bad experiences with them. I live in NYC so I'd be getting fitted at their office rather than using the online method.
P.S. if anyone has bought from them in the past I would appreciate if you could use...
I disagree with your disagreement :P. I have a pair of North face moon boots and they are just as comfortable and warm as they were when I bought them ages ago. They have stood me through many blizzards well.
