leather over wool or leather over down..

a hooded leather greatcoat is $, though, scarf it used, if you can find it..

lots of weight, but super durable.. wax it or spray it, then go through the trenches..

best thing about wool is that it stays warm even when wet. Pea coats are timelessly cool as well.

Yep they are popular right now - Old navy is pushing thing for the holidays. Although these coats don't look quite warm at all, colorful, but not really warm. Meh - I don't shop there anyway. :)

I just noticed them for $130 new in US Cavalry military surplus catalogue, what a rip off. They also sell new ecws sleep systems for $444.68 Most local army/ navy stores will sell pea coats for $20 used. I personally have sold used goretex bivy sacks for $20. I like to see how insane the prices are in online retail mega surplus stores. Fuck that.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
