I've blown out the knees AGAIN (yes, foredeck) on my "Gill OS - somethings" - red with blue knees. I paid a handfull of (Cdn) dollars for this stuff, but I'm starting to think they won't hold up for me??
First pair of 'trousers' lasted from Christmas till mid-June then there was a gaping hole in the knee, bout 2" dia. Took them back to West Marine who pulled a brand new set off the rack and handed them to me. Great.
Next set lasted less <= 2 years, now both knees are gone. Do I take them back again? I'm burning out on this, should I switch to Helly's or Musto's or something? I would like to not buy something off the internet as I feel the need to try stuff on. I seem to have a dilemma....
Is there a good outlet in Vancouver for something that will actually hold up?
Thanks in adv for the help...
