I hope he improves the durability, some of my guides were using it but they are tired of sending stuff back on warranty. It's good stuff if it was just a little more durable it would be better.

Exactly my gripe with FL. Doesn’t hold up at all. Hopefully he can improve it and I’d try it again!

Interesting
People get offended at nothing at all. So, speak your mind and be unapologetic.

Anyone expecting light weight merino wool to hold up like a synthetic is living in fantasy land. Of course high friction areas are gonna wear out lightning fast and exterior garments are gonna get chewed up by brush and rock. That's not FL's fault. Now the stitching issue is a real thing. Hopefully Meateater can find some better Asian children who can sew better :'(

Yeah, how dare you have a non PC opinion. The internet makes me sick. Did everyone get neutered or something?

I get that, but i would expect a 45$ pair of boxers to hold up to more than two elk hunts.

They don't have to be Asian.  Any 3rd world country sweat shop will do.... :rolleyes:
