I am expecting the Polartec NeoShell to live up to the pre production media hype. Enough so that I am about to spend a good bit of the next 6 weeks climbing and skiing in a Westcomb's newest Apoc jacket made of NeoShell material. One of the original testers is a buddy of mine and when pressed called NeoShell, "the missing link". And he is someone that might actually recognise the "missing link" if he saw it. (or was wearing it) High praise indeed from someone I trust on gear. We'll see just how well it does in the real world shortly.
Till then the video is entertaining!
