Definitely. However I do believe they did a 2l Gore-tex coach jacket this year - so are still using it in the sly… maybe it's like when Hiroki said they were discontinuing Lhamo folk FBT

the era Vis stopped, labels like White Mountaineering, NonNative and others took the reigns.

Now none of them have the spirit of old vis.

What Vis does is cute, and hiroki's vision is still cool as hell, but I can get all of the Americana stuff through other brands, minus the 'Artisanship' with more durability. I have a few vis shoes that are simply not durable, every single pair I have had fell apart in some way.

That strabler vest in leather is ridiculous RRP. 648k jpy BEFORE tax. You think they'd throw in the sleeves for that price.

Totems are one of the best vis goretex jackets IMO

Alright price on these Vis 73s, always preferred them in the black/black or brown/brown colour - caution, they fit big, toebox is huge on these.

May have posted before but if anyone finds a gore-tex chinook wouldn't mind a shout, 3 or 4 any colour.

If you like the old techy visvim look the brand citera is from ex visvim team and definitely captures the vibe of that era. Never owned anything from them personally though

Haven’t paid much attention to vis since my obsession back in 2012-2014, but is anyone else appalled at the new pricing. It was always expensive but the prices they are asking now are a joke

That citera backpack is not good. Would much rather go for the 20L ballistic

I get your point. I think for me I don't find hoodies as versatile so opted for the sweats. May have thought twice if I had seen a model wearing them. However I am happy with the colours and overall fit compared with most JP sweats that I have. The length is definitely better for me than Filmelange but is not super thick like loopwheeler.
