Ridiculous product names

The Marmot Oracle Jacket. I'm imagining a ground squirrel standing on its hind legs, intoning a fearsome prophecy while the other rodents cower abjectly. "If you attack the bunnies, a great burrow will be destroyed!"

Although it turns out that groundhogs are marmots, so we have precedent.

Edit: even better: the Marmot Supernova Jacket. Boom!

Winter house

Oh, my.

A little reading made it clear that Marmot is the manufacturer, which is less alarming.

If you're shopping for jackets, I have some other sources -- notably http://www.sierratradingpost.com from which I've bought before.

I'd love to see what you're contemplating in your search.

Not seriously now

I was just looking at those because I saw a note that the site was having a sale. What I mostly found was that there are a lot of details I don't know how to judge online.

That's why you need a fiber geek by your side.
