A really cool, edgy-but-not-over-the-top, fashion-forward Levi's diffusion line that appears to have been dropped for some stupid reason. SilverTab jeans were the best, incorporating many elements from several subcultures so a regular guy could subtly rebel and say "Hey, I'm with you." A pox upon whatever suit dumped the line.
"What I like about SilverTab is they have updated style and are made by a real jeans company instead of some fashion house."

a brand of superior outdoors clothing and equipment worn and used by discerning and discriminating outdoors enthusiasts. Known for great technical style, clean and sleek design. Marmot produces technical outdoors and outdoors lifestyle clothing without ridiculous prices. Probably best known for PreCip rainwear, DriClime windshirts, and their sleeping bags but also make beautiful softshells, down jackets, tents and packs. Big break and defining moment came when they did down jackets for the Clint Eastwood classic "The Eiger Sanction", reflected to this day in the clean Euro look of their products. Used by professional guides, carried primarily in outdoor specialty shops such as The Trailhead in Buena Vista, Colorado.
Ian - "That's a great looking jacket. Does it keep you warm and dry? Who makes it?"

Carlos - "Yes, it kept me warm and dry in Chamonix. It's waterproof, breathes well, and doesn't have a bunch of useless non-functional crap on it. It's from Marmot."

The area near Buena Vista is an outdoors aficionado's paradise with numerous fourteener peaks in the Collegiate Peaks, road cycling, mountain biking, trail running, climbing, bouldering, hiking, and much more. In winter, Alpine, Nordic, and backcountry skiing & snowboarding and snowshoeing are available. The floor of the Valley from Buena Vista to Salida has a pretty mild climate year-round and for this reason is sometimes called the Banana Belt.

They are really willing to help you out with whatever you need, including information about places to go.
