Read through the thread and had to think of Kitsbow, are they producing in BC?

Some Mission Workshop products used to be manufactured in Vancouver. Not sure if this is still the case.

Right. One thing they are doing that's unique in the apparel world, though, is producing many of their pieces to order. Their stuff is pricey but they're taking lots of steps to reduce the waste that is so common in the apparel industry.

Really is hard to find locally made products.

I suppose in today's world we all jump online, we order, and it arrives. And in most cases, there's no difference in lag time if it's coming from China, UK, US, Australia, or anywhere for that matter.

Question for anyone who scored a set of NF pants - how much space is there for kneepads in there? The 7iDP flexknee ones I have are a little 'bulgy' but my older Dakine Slayers are more 'sleeve-y'

I'm 6'2", 220lbs. I have size xl pants and I couldn't fit pads in there comfortably. Maybe the "sleevey " ones? You would definitely have trouble wearing them on your shins if you like to do that while pedaling. Does anyone wear their pads outside their pants? I don't wear pads so I may have just asked a really noob question there.

Well I got an email saying they had more in stock, discussed all things budget with my other half and then they were out of stock so I'll just wear shorts.

Anyone know when it's gonna be possible to actually buy NF stuff? I mean their cloths look awesome and I would really like getting a merino shirt or two myself, but they've been sold out from the time I heard about them...

try it now? most of their stuff is in stock currently. seems they've been ramping up production & they're regularly re-stocking.

I scored a pair of Iguana green ones and slap me with a fish and call me Shirley, they meet the hype and go way past it. 

Never having worn long longs on a bicycle and combined with the fact that I sweat really easily, I was having a little buyer's concern in the 3 days it took them to ship to me (3 days!).

Now how good did they feel for me? I bought different knee pads for them, that's how good.

My 7idp flex knees fit under them fine but I found that pads with a cutout at the back started to rub on hamstrings, so the 7idp Sam Hills stopped that straight away. If the NFs weren't as good as they were I would have sold them on.

OMG 3....like 3 WHOLE days???? 

Uh you know it's not pizza delivery right? 

Amazon prime has ruined the world for shipping expectations for small/medium sized businesses.

Oh, you read me wrong - I'm over the moon that it was 3 days.
