TNF redeming it's self? TNF used to be so much better? Well I'm going to be purchasing some of there equipment this year for the first time. I think the TNF has taken on a lot of heat because we don't like seeing our expensive equipment being worn around on the streets of New York like it's a fashion statment. How ever if TNF takes that new found profit and comes out with new equipment like this it's fine with me. Plus a serious mountaineer should carefully review each piece of gear and not become brand loyal. Any way the Met5 jacket won't be in select stores until Oct. but heres the features. It's the new Altai jacket (check there site for pic) with there new intelligent garment technology. Which includes Polartec heat technology (conductive heat filaments which run throughout the jacket). You can basically turn the jacket on from 105-114 degrees. It uses lithum ion batteries and can be charged in 2.5 hours with an expediation solar recharger! What do you guys think of this new technology? What about the concept? I have more info if anyone requests it I'll post weights, prices etc.
