I was admittedly critical of First Ascent when it first came on the scene a few years back. However, after a few years in the market, touching/feeling the product, being razzed on the blog and via emails, as well as knowing a few people that use their gear at levels far greater than most will I will say it looks like they’ve proven me wrong and are putting out quality gear and have staying power (and bonus points for having tall sizing).
That being said, saw that they are blowing out a bunch of their gear at prices that put it below most of the shred co’s attempt at similar pieces that are typically closer to disposable fashion than function. This is the time of the year to stock up on winter gear you need at 50%+ off in *gasp* last year’s colors, so if the First Ascent stuff isn’t what you’re looking for likely what you DO need is on sale somewhere. A sampling of the First Ascent gear on sale is below, but click here to see the entire sale.
