Is the red pack a new model?
Is there any information available on it?
im a huge mhw fan, loved their conduit, have dealth with them a little and always found them a happy bunch.
but thats gotta be the lamest press release ever. how cheesy are the fabric subtitles?
im sure its great stuff - mhw usually come out good with their innovations (tho there have been exceptions), but the silly techno-speak and crappy video needs work.
if they pay me in shiny gear i will do it:)
(that red packs just a scrambler, been around a while. endorsed by ueli n all)
Completely agree with all the above posts....what a rubbish press release!
Agreed, daft advertising campaign.
"Introducing Dry.Q, the first waterproof-breathable system focused on keeping you dry and comfortable - inside and out."
From the backpackinglight forums, it seems that DryQ is simply a re-branded version of eVent, so that Mountain Hardwear can use both Goretex branded Windstopper as well as eVent fabrics without dealing with a branding war. Similiarly in that vein, Polartec NeoShell is a rebranded version of the air-permeable Toray Entrant membrane.
