So, you might say I shopped an would have bought a Palm if they still sold here...for the same price as Kokatat's "DEAL"
What kind of delam on the thighs?
Edit: I'm told a big part of their lifetime warranty on the Goretex fabric, particularly with regard to delamination, is a pass-through warranty from Gore. I read on a sailing warranty where a person got their suit replaced and saw a copy of a credit card invoice to Gore for the price of their replacement suit.
I have heard of people having to pay for rip/tear type repairs.
I would NOT be happy having to pay an additional $500 (guess?) only 3 years after my $1k initial investment.
$100 in gaskets or $100-200 in repairs after 10 years, I could easily swallow.
