Dana, the vest is everything I expected from Cascade. Very high quality and functional. It's so flexible (storage) that I may give up my backpack and Ultimate patrol belt. Darn the choices, LOL. If there was anything that could be improved, I would make the radio harness (inside the pocket) removable. I plan to wear this underneath my regular patrol jacket (at least when its cold) and the radio harness in my jacket makes it all very bulky.
I have sent you a sample of 'Cascade Man' that I have cut from vinyl. I met (through eBay) Lisa Hill, another patroller from Hamilton, Mt. She purchased some vinyl 'stick' patrollers I make for the back of vehicles (those annoying little families you see everywhere). she asked me to modify a silhouette of 'Cascade Man' for use on the back of some patrol shirts. I made a couple of them out of vinyl and have sent her one and you one. Just a small 'thank you' for providing such great products and service (I think we just picked up 4 more 'boggans' today?).
Thanks again and I hope to get a chance to stop by soon. I'm up on Schweitzer this weekend, but skiing will be my priority.
