    Camera New LL Bean Outerwear and Gear Offerings

    I just got the latest LL Bean Outdoors catalog and they've revamped their outerwear line to include some nice technical pieces.

    The NeoShell Bounder Jacket (technical softshell):

    It is very light.

    A new fleece/puff hybrid, similar to Patagonia's hybrid series:

    A new down sweater:

    A puff synthetic option in the Ascent series:

    Some new hiking packs:

    Other goodies too for the upcoming hiking season.

    And what I like about these are that they look to be good quality and good technical features AND are colorful, which is nice.

    My GF just bought this exact jacket. It is ridiculously thin. She bought it for skiing but I'm thinking spring skiing only.

    Oh really? Then maybe it is not ideal for general use.

    It's working for her in Aspen (TR coming) with just two thin synthetic layers underneath. It's sunny and 40s here.

    Is it windproof per se?

    As far as she can tell, but that's not guaranteed. To me it seems like a very high end rain coat but it certainly works for springtime.

    Am encouraged by the fact that one reviewer didn't like the Tall sleeves fit BUT liked the jacket's performance...just wonder how long he wore it given the fit issue. Will get down to main store in a few weeks to put/leave the jacket on for a while and check it out(incl non-articulated elbows = would be nice)...as the Nissan Xterra will have full power come next week...
