Don't get the FD hate, it's a great concept and I like the look of both the V3 and V4. Yeh there has been durability issues but from what I heard FD's customer service wasn't awful. Also you have to admire Lesh's determination; if I wasn't over here in the UK I probably would look at picking up some of their stuff for next season.
FD Is a solid company with very good customer service. They continue to make changes to their outerwear based on customer feedback and suggestions. Allot of us FD supporters don't care to make posts on every thread like "shit looks dope" or viceversa on companies we don't like find the need to hate and say stupid shit like "I'd pee in their butt". As far as the v3 to v4 sleeves don't make stuff up when you really don't know. Your basing that off of my comment / feedback for them. Wear what you like, you have nothing to prove and don't waste your time hating. If you don't like it why even click on the thread.
Well not sure what your friends have but I have the FD v3 pants and saga anomie pants. Both are great quality, the same 20K waterproof, and have never had a problem with either in pow, let alone being soaked to the core. Don't waste your time hatin. No need to reply.
