Hi,

There is a chance (not certain yet) that I will have an R1 hoody to sell in either L or XL.

If this becomes available how much would you be willing to pay for it?

Let me know,

H

Interesting post.

Why not just state the condition, colour and price, rather than trying to do a Dutch auction on it? I know it is a well sought after item, but why not just advertise at a set price?

Because, as I stated, I don't currently have one. I might be getting one brought back from the states for me by a fiend. I would like to try on both the L and the XL so if people on here are willing to pay what it would cost to get the extra one brought back over, I will not lose money, if they are not then I will, and therefore will just take a gamble on size.

Happy now?

Mate, I was only asking! It was an unusual advert, that's all. Thanks for explaining it, and I guess that clarifies the condition and sort of price you're looking for. All the best.

haha - sorry! that wasn't meant to be as harsh as it sounded...

But - what would you be willing to pay?
In reply to sweenyt:
As someone who owns a R1 hoody, I wouldn't as I have one.

But if I was wanting one, and since you're probably selling a brand new one, even with tags I'd happily go for 90% of the purchase price.

Love it. I'm picturing a demon hurling it's way through an Atlantic storm at midnight, grinning like a maniac, clutching your hoody to its chest as it beats it's leathery wings. You're avoiding import duty, but you'll pay with your soul... ;-)

Ha - thats made me chuckle...

But more seriously, theyre going to be about '395 each. Is anyone likely to pay 100 (ish) for one?

Unlikely, you can often find them new for less than that, and they're not such a sought after item as they used to be as a load of other manufacturers have brought out their own version, some of which are better and cheaper than the R1.

Think I paid 75 for mine in Snow & Rock. But if you need advice on sizing they fit large - my XL is probably a bit big for me.

Just out of interest, how much is your friend paying for it in the States?

In reply to JayPee630:

+1 to this. The Rab AL pull-on is pretty much as good at under 50. Unless you absolutely must have a hood on your underwear (to go with the one on your softshell, hardshell and belay jacket!!)

You wear both a soft shell and a hardshell? Weird.

In reply to r0x0r.wolfo and others:

thanks. it's looking like its not worth me getting a spare brought back over. I'm also now questioning whether I relly need one with the suggestions that others are as good. Up until now I was lead to believe that the others were not as good, save perhaps for the ME eclipse?

Its been interesting to hear your thoughts - so thanks again

In reply to sweenyt:

I own a ME eclipse. It's pretty damn good. I also have a rab baseline which just seems nice to wear all the time.

Yep, over my wetsuit.

ME Eclipse is brilliant, more versatile than the R1 IMHO, but nothing beats the warm, snuggly feeling you get wrapped in an R1.
