Tom's report: I love thrifting because there's no common denominator of quality like you see at fancy vintage stores or high end (and high priced) flea markets. Usually when I go through the outerwear at the thrift stores in Eugene, it's just a fuzzy cake of cheap polar fleece. But when I was in town last month, a sliver of hunter green caught my eye between the day-glo layers, and I pulled out a immaculate condition Hunting World jacket.
Though the jacket looks waxy, it's actually made with a 60/40 fabric treated with a polyamid finish.
Partial wool lining with internal drip strip (ala Barbour Bedale).
If you like this jacket here's your chance to bid on a size medium Forester via ebay. And what a price!
