 I love the idea of that windproof jersey, it's what I've been looking for.

@raceface will the DWR wash out over time, or is it 'baked in'? I wash my jersey's after most rides and I'm a) too lazy to reproof it and b) don't like the idea of the environmental impact of washing off the DWR.

 You probably shouldn’t investigate microplastics. DWR is not the only issue.

 To extend the life of the DWR treatment you can wash it the garment with special wash products like Nicwax Tech Wash.

 @gafoto: Agreed. I had the same realisation, I've just been picking up merino jerseys in the sales for that exact reason. My plan is to wear those with a windproof gillet which won't then need washing as often (..ever..!).

I thought that was quite an environmentally sound approach, until I remembered the jerseys were made in New Zealand on almost exactly the opposite side of the planet to me.

 If you don't like the environmental impact of washing off DWR, enjoy the environmental benefits of rarely doing laundry!

 Yeah. Companies just need to make the front windproof (mainly torso) and the rest breathable or with vents. Surprised not many companies have been doing it.

 @tacklingdummy: You just described 90% of winter "road" jersies. They'll have usable pockets too. You're welcome.

 @gafoto: about that, Patagonia sells some kind of bags that you should use to wash synthetic clothes so that the micro plastic stays in.
Is that bs or does it work ?

 @JohnnyVV: I use merino as a base layer then a sacrificial jersey on top.

 @zede:
Good question. Don’t know anything about it! That feels like putting plywood over a giant pothole. Or trying to recycle plastic #5.

There’s a bigger solution than a washing bag. Gotta vote in folks who are concerned with major economic and structural change.

 @zede: I got that wash bag "guppyfriend". From what you find in there after some washes I guess it works.

 @likehell I was wondering about those bags, glad to hear they work @zede @gafoto I use a Filtrol filter on my washer outler, and it catches a bunch of gross stuff, and is super easy to use/clean out.

 It is wild how much mountain bike gear costs, when you can buy some, not high end but good, motocross gear for half the price
  • 4 0
 I don't get it either. Motocross gear is similar to MTB gear. Then when motocross gear companies start making MTB gear, they raise the price to same as the MTB industry pricing. Lol.

 @tacklingdummy: way more people moto then mtb.

 @makripper: Really? Seems the opposite. Do you have a link to your statistics of both industries?
  • 2 0
 @tacklingdummy: It's always charge what the market will bear. Think of gas, homes (Vancouver lol), women's cosmetics, shoes ad nauseam.

A new player in the clothing market, for instance, introduces more competition ... but it seems that no one is willing to push down the prices. I don't think anyone wants to be 'that company" that takes the plunge and drops the price and wrecks the party for everyone.

 Yeah, the Fox flexair stuff was solid. Looks like I'll be moving over to their 180 line for new jerseys.

 @tacklingdummy: Maybe Mt. Bikers are seen as more affluent than MX???? Then charge what the market will bear.

 Ordered a raceface bib from qbp. Could have sworn it was the stash but showed up as a bib with no pockets...dang, it's useless to me. Probably a pain to return.

 Yes! We have some awesome gear for kids! Knee + Elbow pads, jerseys, shorts, and gloves to outfit the young shredders!

 Just don't buy those Sendy Elbow or knee pads. Thick, hot, scratchy... kids hated them. I just bought them Indy Elbow pads to use as knee pads for them and look elsewhere for elbow pads like G-form.

Not sure why they don't just make kids sizes of the regular Indy knee/elbow pads.
