Tried out the OR ignite a couple of years ago when it first came out and liked it alot, but I felt it was too bulky for dinghy sailing and ended up with a kokatat icon. Full cordura legs and arms, plus I can send it back to kokatat for repairs.
The Heat looks good for dinghy sailing, but "420 Denier abrasion overlays at knees, buttocks and crotch" vs "200 Denier abrasion overlays at knees, buttocks and crotch".
Will that make much difference for dinghy sailors who tend to spend a lot of time sliding around on their ass? Will the Heat wear out sooner?
Thanks but the price of the Kokatat is about double of the Heat.
My bet would be that the smooth tanks of a 420 will be less of an issue than the aggressive non skid of a lead mine
That makes sense.
