$380— I was expecting a lifelong pant with terrific quality and features. NOPE, the cheapest zippers on the pockets that I have EVER seen, AND, misconstructed on top of that. Sent back, then one month later I get them back and the zipper bottom had a cheap, bent-up plastic clasp replaced at the bottom. I had to hammer it and straighten it myself. Second pair, pocket zipper froze due to the same cheap construction. Sent back, three weeks later they are on a one-week track back to my address. They… Full review
Fabric is okay, customer service is good, actual fit and design is mediocre. Note: I don't have the Steel Shock pants, but the Mojave.

My jacket came too short in the torso and I have not been able to get a return authorization to get it fixed. My suggestion is to find a WB-400 garment… Full review
Beyond Clothing (previously known as Beyond Fleece) specializes in custom-made garments. Soft shell jackets bridge the gap between a hard shell and an insulation layer. Soft shells are much more breathable than hard shells, offer moderate wind and water resistance, and provide a thin layer of insulation. On the downside soft shells aren’t 100% waterproof although most soft shells will keep you dry is moderate to light rain. Why Beyond? Being 6’4” with a 37” sleeve length it has been difficult… Full review
