Stop making really spiffy things that I love and then discontinuing them, only to replace them with a higher-dollar substitute I don’t like as well.
The most obvious case-in-point of this would be the ever-popular Terrain Half Chaps. By the time I wanted to jump on the bandwagon and get a pair, they were all sold out and discontinued in the size I would need (which is Small Short, preferably…Small might work). The replacement, the Volant XT, is double the price and I don’t like the look of them nearly as well as the original Terrain half chaps. Spanish topline? For endurance? Are you kidding me?
I’ve also got a pair of these Ariat Duma sneaker/Terrain things that I really like. Too bad they’re about 6 or 7 years old now and I’m forced to limit the amount that I use them, lest they wear out, since they don’t make them anymore. They’re really similar to the original Terrain boot, only lighter weight and really ventilated.
Anyone want to help me petition to bring back the shoes and the Terrain half chaps?
