Men's Furio Gore-tex Jacket $150 (70% off)

Deal Link:
Price:
150
Savings:
70% off

Outdoor Research
There are possibly other gems to be found in their sale page (up to 70% off), but I was specifically keeping an eye out for a replacement gore-tex shell for snowboarding this winter. This Furio looks to be pretty well review, and certainly a steal at 70% off. OR has one of the best warranties around, so I have zero hesitation in purchasing any of their products.

Looks like there is still a decent selection of colours and sizes available. I went for the Cascade/Twilight in Large

Edit 1: As a personal warranty anecdote, I recently returned a shell I bought several years ago. There was an issue with the hood, and they offered either a credit to get it repaired, or a warranty return. I opted for the return, and they deposited a non-expiring credit to my account for the full MSRP of the item (despite buying it on sale initially). I've dealt with only a couple of other brands with warranty stuff, and they have all been much more combative/dismissive than OR.

Edit 2: If you have a friend with an account (or a second email) then you can get a signup code discount.

Edit 3: Free shipping over $49

Thread Summary
Some additional info/clarification on the extra discount:

Sign up with an address (though I'd suggest one you don't actually want to use to order, but it doesn't really matter at the moment).
In the sign up process, you should be asked for the email of your "friend", this email will receive the discount code.

Generate the code yourself for double discount (half applicable to a future purchase)
1) Log into your primary account
2) My Account -> Refer a friend
3) Copy link
4) Open a new browsing session (incognito or whatever)
5) Use link to generate code
6) Sign up for 2nd account
7) Order using your 2nd account - You save $20. And you will also get $20 off for a future purchase in your primary account.

For those who haven't used GoreTex or had bad experiences with it, the key to GoreTex is to keep it clean - really clean. If anything (ie dirt but also detergent) starts clogging the membrane, GoreTex loses the ability to breathe correctly. So, give the GoreTex a thorough washing and a rinsing to remove any of the detergents that may be left over from the wash. You may have to rinse the GoreTex a few times if you used a lot of detergents. Once done, pop it into the dryer on high heat to renew the water-repelling layer.

It definitely is. On the one item I've warrantied, they gave the full MSRP as credit (despite getting it on a deep discount).

Not often I see correct advice given out regarding goretex garments.

One additional point, beyond reactivating DWR is reapplying DWR. Once it gets to the point where reheating it does jack sh1t, you need to do the spray on DWR. In fact I don't even bother with heating anymore, just go straight to reapply.

Also, don't use the wash in DWR products they put DWR everywhere, including where it does NOT need to go, aka the inside of the jacket.

I agree with the reapplication of the DWR; however, in this case, since the jacket is new, the jacket shouldn't need a reapplication of DWR just yet as the factory stuff should last for a while.

But while we are on the subject of DWR, I've found that not all DWR is the same. I like the stuff from Gear-Aid Revivex - don't get the instant stuff but the durable one. If I remember right, before the rebranding, GoreTex used to only recommend the Revivex product for their DWR coating. As a bonus, Revivex also works on regular shells!
