I’ve had a similar issue with goggle lenses. Local shop says they’re on indefinite backorder.
It makes sense that the manufacturing facility for those would have switched to medical shields full time. Biggest demand.
Ordered a Kappa KRG 52 litre top case & the metal rack that goes on top last night (Sept 11th) will see how long it takes to arrive in Alberta via Canada Post Only 2 more things I am interested in for the new V85 TT, lower shock & possibly a "Y" pipe to decat the bike & get rid of the extreme heat on your feel lower legs. Would order a Corbin seat if one was available, but otherwise a local gal might get the business
Fortnine is awesome expecting yet another delivery this week.
Just ordered yet another pair of Gloves.
I should receive my merino wool sweater today or tomorrow - excellent timing for the cooler weather.
I'm a bit skeptical of the claims regarding merino wool, but will be happy if the claims are true about how wonderful is this material.
I'm allergic to wool, but everything I have ever heard says Merino wool is the best
Merino is the best! What item did you order as I’ve not come across merino stuff there yet?
I ordered the Klim Teton merino sweater
Another great source for Merino is Taiga in Vancouver. Sort of like the early MEC. GOOD PRODUCTS. Made inCanada too.
I bought a merino sweater from Costco last year. Really thin, awesomely warm. Wore it today, was frost on the seat this morning.
Awesome find - I'll be ordering from there this evening - thanks very much for the link!
You know, I never think of Costco - usually because there's none nearby, but they do ship stuff, so I should check there more often. Thanks for the heads up.
Great store with high quality materials and really low prices. Check out their sleeping bags if you are in the market for a new one.
I bought a Merino wool crew t shirt last xmas at MEC it already has 3 small holes in different places, so my experience is the quality is not so great, I hear MEC just sold to an American firm as they were insolvent.
Order placed Saturday evening for the Kappa KRG 52 & it arrived today in Alberta Can't complain about that delivery speed. Dropped them a message however as the case appears to have a couple of "flaws"; snapped some pictures & sent them off after Customer Service responded (very quickly I might add)
merino wool is fantastic. Been wearing it as baselayers, even sports shirts for many years. Doesn't carry the stink poly shirts get after a few wears.
Durability depends heavily upon the blend percentage involved. 100% wool products tend to wear much quicker though. I've owned some icebreaker items for over 10 years and counting.
The Kim merino "sweater" came in. It's really thin, more like a long sleeve shirt.
Are all your merino wool stuff this thin? When I think thermal layer, I think plush sweater.
I ordered the Taiga sweater and should get it next week, interested to see how thick it will be.
To stay on topic, I ordered some cold weather gloves from F9 that are supposed to be designed to work with heated grips.
They were in the snowmobile section, though in the states they're advertized as cold weather motorbike gloves.
there are diff weights to merino. ie Icebreaker stuff, 150 wt is thinner stuff I use for sports/baselayer. They have a 260 wt I use as a mid and on its own. Then I have some even thicker wool cycling Pearl Izumi tops which are worn on its own and look like old school jerseys.
Lots of misinformation out there on Merino.How much of the fiber is actually Merino is hard to figure out on some websites.Some Chinese(?) brands are even lying right on the package implying Merino but them expensive glove liners once turned over have a label that says 100% Polyester.
I buy the Canadian made Stanfields Merino.
