Re: Extra gear you bring for alpine climbing

Re: Sub 8 ounce Rainshell Questions
I'm not sure what you can get the Helium for at the moment, but Campsaver has the Pulse for $123 in almost all color/size combos. I got it for $110 last year when they had a coupon on top of th...

Re: Sub 8 ounce Rainshell Questions
I wanted a light rain shell for those trips where there is no rain in the forecast, but if it did happen to rain then I would be in big trouble. I got tired of hauling my 14oz jacket around even th...

Rab Alpine, Ascent, or Storm bivy with a thick air pad?
Does anyone here have any experience with either the Alpine, Ascent, or Storm bivy with a 2.5"-3" thick air pad? Will I still be able to fit a 20 degree bag without compressing the down?

Re: Thanks for all the recommendations so far

Re: Base layer recommendations for PCT thru
I would go with something along the lines of Patagonia Capilene 2 or maybe 3. I typically only used my baselayer while hiking on cooler mornings or evenings. I did wear it one some rare days when t...

Re: Outdoor Research Ferrosi Hoodie
I also have the Ferrosi, which I bought just for rock climbing. Oddly enough, it's great for ski touring when there is no precip. I had to size down to a small because it's cut very chub...
