/ North Face Redpoint Optimus as Belay Jacket (and camp jacket)
D'aww. Only two threads, and both are pretty specific (x exact jacket for y purpose, can anyone find a link to p exact trousers), but I'll give that old search function a go.
Plus who doesn't love a natter about gear?
The zip is going on mine, but it must be 7 or 8 yrs old now and I've used mine loads as a general winter jacket as well as for climbing at weekends over that time.
A search only finds it mentioned casually in one other thread and one guy selling his this year with six threads, but I will.
If you don't mind; how would you compare its warmth to say, a basic down jacket like an alpkit filo?
