    About six weeks ago I found this 1995/6 ELC BoB Irvin on ebay at £420 inc postage. it appears as new, no wear that I can find.
    My wife very kindly said that I could have it as a Christmas present. I am now praying for cold weather!

    VERY nice, and fits you well. :) Hopefully, Santa will send a cold-snap your way if you were good... ;)

    I like it. Something about the 90s ELC seem better than what is being offered now.

    We've had plenty of cold weather in Chicago. Probably best if you just ship it to me so it can live a proper life in the kind of climate it's made for. Thanks ever so much. :)

    Steve, it's a beauty and incredibly well purchased... I'll just send some winter to you instead.

    I think Riri supplied a batch of zips with a plastic tab. It really wouldn't bother me but my understanding is the plastic zip is an issue for some.
