I think the consensus here is Saphir wax. I've used Obenaufs LP on my Grizzly's without any problems.

Is it possible to but a waistband separately for a ballistic 20L?
Only reason I'm asking this is because the one i bought online didn't come with it :/

Newer season ones don't come with the waistband.

So I'm new to Vis, and I've noticed releases are generally on Tuesday (right?).

I'm curious though, is there a calendar of some sort to know what's coming out every week? Really want the upcoming plain color Sanjuro Bomber…but I have no idea how to get it. Do I just check every Tuesday and hope I can get it before it sells out? Also curious because I figure I'd use a proxy for something like this, as it'd be significantly cheaper than buying direct in USD.

Any help here appreciated!

Tried on the Iris liner at DSM today, it fits TTS if anyone is interested. I am a size 2 in outwear and a 3 in shirts and its fits perfectly. I could get into a 1, only if i was planning on wearing a T underneath.
They also have Virgils in stock, in brown.

@saltz33, you are a 2 & 3 in shirt & outerwear respectively and you can get into a 1? The shoulder is not too small for you?

I'm a 1 in shirt & sometimes a 2 in outerwear, I'm wondering if I'm a 1 or 2 in the Liner. Both the shoulders in 1 & 2 look small & that's my main worry.

@long66 - I go 3 in shirts as i like them a little loose but definitely 2 in outerwear.
Here is the size 1… fits great in terms of length on the body and the arms (i'm only 5'7") but i can raise my arms too high in it so size 2 is perfect.

^ Visually, size 1 looks good on you - sleeve & body length are spot on.

Thanks for the fit pix.
