awesome Is MSR a good brand?

     

Hey! I am buying an MSR shirt and MSR gloves. Was that a good brand choice? I've only had Fly brand shirts and they have been ripped very easily, so i'm trying MSR. I've had MSR gloves and they were good, so i'm getting a new second pair!

If I wasn't so deep into Thor, MSR would be my second choice of gear
Infact, I already ordered a pair of their 2008 casual shorts

I have never owned a set of MSR before, but I can tell you from what friends have said, you should stay away from thier entry level gear, from what I understand it's not constructed real well and is pretty thin.

My son used MSR for a while. He liked the look but the jersey was cotton and was really hot in the summer. He uses Fox entirely now. I thought about MSR but I have liked Thor since the Torsten Hallman days in the early 70's.

I started my kids out on MSR gear and it always held up good. Can't say the same for the hard parts I've been dissapointed,.

Thats true, I would ride the MSR NXT LTD or the MSR Renegade gear.
I have a friend who has two sets of the NXT LTD gear and he loves them.
The Renegade jersey starts off at $34 and the race pants start at $94. So if you have the money, I'd go for it.

Buying the lower entry grade level gear is a waste of money when it comes to any brand. It's always thin, doesn't breath well and comes apart fairly easily. It may cost a little more now but it sure beats having to buy a new set 6 months downt he road because the cheap stuff turned to crap, ya know.

With that said, I always look around Ebay for last years high grade stuff. You can normally get a package deal with jersey, pants and gloves for a really good price.

I have a set of Thor Phase gear, and thats their low end gear, and it's actually held up better than my Core gear, but it doesnt breath as easy.
