we all know what opinions are like, but.... i am interested to know what everyone thinks about the differences in quality of the different gear brands. troy lee vs answer vs thor vs fox vs msr vs moose vs klim vs etc. you get the point. who makes the best gear? what is not going to fade in the wash? not rip or tear the first time you look at it sideways? what holds up well? and i am talking todays standards, not how good a company was 10 years ago. who makes quality items, and takes pride in offering quality gear to us as the consumer that will last for many uses to come?
