I cant believe this hasn't been posted here yet?! lol
For those of you that don't know the company Core Rat... It is run by a girl named Angie, whom was amongst the first few free ride mountain bikers to hit the trails back in the 1990's... She started making protective gear for her friends in case the inevitable should happen, and after perfecting the art of clothing and protective gear, went mainstream and created a website to which anyone looking for quality mountain biking protection in the world could place orders... Core Rat was getting all the attention, and even won a few MTBR awards (even as recent as last years products)... until manufacturers like Fox, 661, and Roach started creating similar products, and promoting them everywhere they could. It is because of these other companies that Core Rat has decided to call it an end. They have experienced a decrease in demand over the past couple years, as mountain biking has become mainstream, and similar products can be found just around the corner at the local sports shops.
I have found Angies clothes (particularly her BattleShorts) to be superior to any off the shelf merchandise. all of her products are hand made (no factory assembly lines or any of that crap), and composed of material that will withstand punishment for many years (being reasonable, lol).
They are currently having a clearance sale on all items left in stock, sizes, and colors are limited, and dont hesitate to contact her via Email... she'll answer any questions you have, usually within 12-24 hours... ... Tell her Rob sent you, lol.
