Yeah.. a lot of Siver stuff looked amazing... but 5,000 waterproofing on all models doesn't cut it...
"some were liek how many sides does a rhombus was i had no idea ont he cups in 5.5 gallons and what time period we are in but besides those i think im smarter thena 5th grader"
i thought this years line had 10k stuff. and honestly, there are some days when its pouring rain and im in my siver, and my friends in his arc'teryx 3 ply goretex shell and we both get soaked to the bone
Orage stuff always seemed a little more weatherproof in my opinion. My old Orage jacket ruled for skiing cruddy days. Siver would be stuff I would wear on the street, but I'd take Orage gear on a heli trip, especially some of their newest stuff.
I have the dinner suit in 'goose' color (strange name!) but very much attention to detail with this gear! I am very pleased. Nice little things like fold-over pocket flaps, the big wood buttons are easy to use with gloves on, and the fabric pattern is very cool too. Tramdock spec says 10k, but this is a pow suit I think~ Good for dry, light powder because of teflon coating. But many of their design was not very cool, and some of it very strange (turkish jacket!), it is another brand who only sells to a certain person, so not very much money to make. Unfortunate but this is business. Also, their gear is very very very baggy!

Skiing, the only sport where the more you spend, the less credible you are!
