yeah pretty sure wt-thermo came out in that taps trademark teal blue, can't find it documented anywhere tho , also OD, black and white for sure. Some colours didn't get marketed in mags, like most of the all white versions in that season. Strange thing is tho the matching parka wt-Arctic def never came out in that blue though…

I've got mint examples in black and OD if you want to buy focuskyam, I finally ended up getting a modern walkman and I can't figure out any other use for the disc chamber except to carry a DE-01, although I used it with D777 also..

I'm pretty much Xray but I'd recommend it to anyone smaller. I have my original parasmock from Neighborhood in 2001 and it is the most key piece of gear I ever owned. Wore the shit out of it over many years and have a couple more now. Loose and open over a t-shirt or zipped open at the base works in warmer weather, layer it in cold weather, it's so versatile, tons of pockets, extremely solid construction. Nylon but I'd take it over goretex, even though it's less waterproof the heavy duty multi Layer ripstop nylon wears and ages better.

Yeah holy shit Morning Mist, you're a fucking little bitch but that video sure is interesting. I kinda thought Nigo had auctioned off all his collections to pay back the yakuza but obviously he's still got a serious archive. What's even more interesting is there wasn't one ape head or single piece of Ape history to be seen, anywhere..like it was erased from history..
