     Might be worth a look. (I'm hoping I see nothing to be honest spent too much this month already)

    I want a hoodie also, but I think it's only going to be outerwear.

    Is the sample sale going on Solstice's site or is it at a location? I've never seen an online sample sale.

     It's the website. they don't have a retail location as far as I know.

    Hope they're going to post more info as I have no chance if I don't know what time the stuff is going up

     I found a bunch of stuff just by googling it. Came up with basically the same thing. You can see 12/13 sample in a lot of the descriptions but the links don't work.

    http://shopping.yahoo.com/womens-outerwear/airblaster--brand/

    Also have been hounding the site all day myself. But if those are the actual prices and products available, I think I'll be passing.

     yea I know what you mean. It looks like those are placeholder RRPs though. Never seen anyone charge RRP for a sample hoody ($60 for the cale and $52 for the balboner on my link)

    Ah well. Over it if it doesn't happen, need to stop spending money on outwear...

    I've been waiting for it to drop too, even sent an email to a dude working there. he said it would drop at 3pm.

    At the prices linked above I think I'll pass too. Looks like retail or close. No bueno for me.

     Just tried and I can get through on some of the links. Goes directly to the product page but you can't find a whole group/section of the stuff, just each one individually.

    Prices (so far) are only 25% off retail. With no warranty? Eff.

    Just tried a couple more, the sale is "live" now, as in you can add it to your cart at least. They must be making changes "as we speak".

    Yeah, decided it wasnt worth it for me (especially with my experience with samples). I really want a pullover, quilted shirt, and cale hoody next season.

    Well this year I wore an Airblaster Parker sample (that might be for sale soon for dirt cheap), I loved the jacket but it just felt like its quality didn't live up to a production jacket. The pass holder plastic shattered, one of the waist tighteners broke, and the zipper had multiple problems. Again, I loved the jacket and I'm not sure it occurred because it was a sample. I'm aware samples rarely have problems but because of my experience this season $50 off a pullover wont entice me to buy a sample.

    I have a few in the closet and they've all been up to par, I'd say. In fact, some of my production pieces have failed before the samples. Nothing major usually, but little stitching on logos and velcro letting loose.

     Got a cale hoody. Hoping the quality is decent because with shipping it ended up working out about the same as it would normally be :P

    Even though its a hoodie, let me know how you like it!

    My post above made it look like I hate samples. I would not hesitate to purchase a sample again (especially if they are cheap) because I love Airblaster and I still trust that samples will be good quality (even with my bad experience).

    Off topic with regard to the sample sale, but does anyone have experience with both the boot cut and the slim cut pants? How much slimmer are the slim cut than the boot cut? I like the way the boot cut fit, do you think if I sized up in the slim cut they would fit similarly?

    the slim cut is noticeably slimmer. it's your standard slim/tight look that guys like jed anderson/etc usually wear. the bootcut fit is a loose fit but with a tailored shape so it doesn't look "baggy"

    Just got it today. Looks majestic. Probably about the same thickness and size as my medium airpill zippy hoody if that helps. Hood is layered on the inside too.

    I'll post pics later if anyone wants lol
