I think that's the ones that have a faint stripe through the gore-tex. The other one released at the same time was an M61 style called Alaska I think.

Lanz' pic made me nostalgic. So many great gore-tex jackets came out at that time. Could use all these:

The townsend Lanz posted up is from FW 07-08, I had the same one…


As Crazy Joe says, it's not as nice as the packable spring/summer one as the material in the one pictured above is herringbone. I ended up selling mine in the end because of it. I believe both Seenmy and Aitch had/has one too, though Aitch's is the packable one? I could be wrong…

There have been various iterations of the townsend since, the last hooded one was the gingham style one released a couple of spring/summer seasons ago. The latest ones, in particular last fall/winter and this spring summer have been without a hood. As usual the spring/summer ones are 2.5L and fall/winters 3L.
