    Are Sherpa Adventure Gear products any good, in-particular the Manaslu jacket, Shankar jacket and Tsepun 1/4 zip top?

    The Sherpa stuff I've examined in shops looked very good -- up there with Montane, Rab, ME and the like in terms of design and quality of materials. I haven't been able to justify buying any of it, having a plethora of kit atm, but wouldn't hesitate to do so if I found myself short of some item of kit.

    I have a couple of Sherpa pieces, but none of the ones you mention, and I like them. Make sure you try before hand though as the fit can be a bit off (very tight arms compared to the fit of the body) on some of their tops.

    Some of the jackets in the shops last year had a very odd fit - looong arms, tight under the pits and a hood that only a circus freakshow pinhead would be able to make use of. They seem to have sorted that now. I have one on the go (bought in a sale) that seems fine so far. Bought mainly on fit and price; I no longer put much stock in claims for more expensive shell jackets (in a UK climate context).

    They have the 'Posh-est' outdoor gear store in Kathmandu. It puts the Keswick shops to shame. The prices are.....'posh' as we'll.....!
    The kit always looked good but never tried it on cos' pricey. Epicentre in Ambleside sell a lot of Sherpa gear.
