It’s an oldie, but a goody…
A preview of the Japanese AK457 2L Down Jacket; The 2L Down is even lighter than the global LZ Down(!) We were able to shave more weight by using tighter and lighter fabrics throughout, as well as even higher loft premium down.
A waterproof breathable down jacket goes a bit against conventional wisdom.. everybody knows down loses much of it’s insulative value when it gets wet (and being in the coast mountains, I was skeptical), however when combined with a seam sealed breathable Gore shell it performs incredibly well.

Check out the latest post on BaT! Built as a tribute to the works 953 Paris to Dakar rally cars… of which only three were built. Only one 953 is in private hands, and it would be unbelievably expensive -if- you could even buy it. This is about as close as you could get to the real thing. This is one of the coolest cars ever posted on BaT. I can’t imagine how fun this would be on dirt…
These guys are crazy. Over the weekend, they were doing maintenance work on the high tension power lines above the studio. Buddy was replacing the spacers that keep the lines from touching each other.. and the best way to get to them is by helicopter.
