There's no doubt it's damn good - I've seen most of their range in person and it really is nice stuff. My point was it's way over-priced and, to me at least, a little too garish. It's certainly not out of my price range but as I say, it's not the cost, it's the value I question...

As ever, YMMV, I sincerely hope you enjoy your gear
