Topic - Do you use your gear for daily use?

Stani49 - on 21 Feb 2013
Hi all-

Does anybody here use their hillwalking/mountaineering/climbing gear in everyday wear? A lot of the top climbers I see always seem to be walking around in top-brand gear, expensive Rab waterproof coats and Mountain Hardwear fleeces for example. I'm not sure if these guys are using the same gear they use on the mountains etc. I suppose I want the 'cool climber look' too. But it seems odd to risk wearing out expensive gear by wearing it to walk the dog, walk to the shop, wear for daily life etc. But at the same time, if you have a mega-warm fleece that keeps you warm in the Himalayas, why not wear it when it's freezing cold here in the UK?

Am I seeing things or does anybody know where I'm coming from?
