About Me After lugging around 45lbs+ through a Nat'l Park or two, I decided UL was the way to go and haven't looked back. URL is to my Geargrams list for most of my 3-season trips. My other hobby is photography, if the destination is worth it, then add 1 to 7lbs to my base weight for camera gear. In case you were curious, my profile avatar image is Buck (aka 9 mile) Creek of the High Sierra Trail in Seki NP.

Re: Peak XV down fill weight
The jacket design has definitely been updated since last year's version (most noticeably the heavier face fabric in high wear areas - ie, shoulders/forearms), and I can't say for sure that ...

Re: Patagonia Semi-Annual Sale
Any chance that Patagonia adds new stock mid-sale? Otherwise, it looks like I missed all those great deals on Cap 4 (and I would have loved to try a pair of the bottoms).
