Re: Do you ever not filter or treat your water?
I rarely treat my water. I spend most of my time above 10k in CO, and often am off-trail. At lower elevations, I probably would treat water, but I start the trip with water, and usually get to 10k ...

Re: Re: pulled the trigger
Purchased the 65 as my technical multi-day pack. Mainly backcountry skiing and rock climbing. Should be able to fit a smaller pack inside for use in base-camp style situations - likely even my smal...

Re: ski layering
Serge - I'm curious about your experiences. When touring, I've always been warm enough with a light synthetic puffy, a softshell, and a thick enough baselayer. This includes temps even down...

Re: Climb
The real test would be spring, when the snow is firm. They won't work for that above any moderate angle snowfield. You do the same in ANY footwear if the snow is soft. These are cleats, not cra...

Re: Best synthetic parka

Re: Stoic Wraith windshirt
You glossed over the most important factor in a windshirt - breathability. The Verto is barely more breathable than a good rain jacket, while the Wrath is in the top of its class (with the old Houd...

Re: lightest, most breathable shell
The Zpacks Poncho/Groundsheet is great, if it fits you. I'm a relatively slim build at 5'10 and 175lbs and I just couldn't get it to work with me and my pack. I just couldn't be as ...
