If he hadn’t already purchased the 634XHSib,then it would be a different story. Would you advise him not to buy them in this scenario?

Buying another pair of XHSib was pretty much mandatory. Hence my dilemma. Also @Eisenherz the 634 is much more suited for a big cuff. That's what I did with my 633 and it leads to a kind of bell shaped cuff and pucker at the top of the cuff.

Edit: the 634 is not as tapered and looks nicer with a big cuff...

Well I decided to go ahead and wear them. I'm not going to bother soaking them or anything. Reason being the waist on the 634 is almost 1.5 inches smaller than the 633 in the same tagged size. But the rise and thighs are virtually the same. Which is great for me because the waist on the 633s is a little too big.

What’s the fun in being faithful, have your cake and eat it too @Filthy   :P
Sticking with the good thing is worth it in the long run, it’s all about a deeper understanding. Swapping between one thing and another leads to insignificent, superficial pleasures. And probably herpes. Apparently.

Mr. Padmore is correct, on a clear day you can look over Vestfjørden and see the Lofoten Archipelago from my town. Henningsvær is a particularly lovely old fishing village at the northern end of the archipelago.

To get there you almost have to come via Bodø, where I live. From my town you can fly (30min), take a ferry (3hrs plus a 90min drive to Henningsvær), or take a the coastal cruiser (3 hrs from Bodø to Svolvær). There are more convoluted routes depending on what you fancy and where you’ve been.

Are you considering a visit?

Thanks Reuben, Some friends of mine were on Holiday in warmer times and showing me photos. A really nice spot.

A really nice spot.

It’s unique in many ways and quite beautiful. Been a few times myself.

I’m curious if anyone can recommend a pair of water-resistant pants that don’t look like the typical REI / Patagonia / Columbia wear? Thank you.

They might fall into that category, but maybe these? @seanocono

Those look like they may be more fast-drying than water-resitant.

Kuhl tends to break the mold of the tech/mountain wear brands (but perhaps not enough for what you want)

@Giles

How much prep goes into sourcing, dyeing and weaving aspero cotton? I think it’s such a great fabric and is what separates IH from other brands. Kinda curious why Haraki San chose aspero over regular cotton and what he would do if there ever was an aspero shortage.
