My Locale Europe
About Me I started as an alpine climber, I did most of my climbing in the European Alps and some in New Zealand and recently some ice climbing in New Hampshire during holidays. I started backpacking while in New Zealand and backpacked exstensively in Europe, Patagonia and Nepal and in the US (VT and NH). I started as a lightweight backpacker for my Patagonia trip in 2002 and progressed from there to a more ultralight style. My favorite backpacking style is multi day trips in an alpine environment.

Re: Ultralight Winter Gear- "Action Suit"
Hi Brett, like Mark said; definitly go with the Dryskin. I consider Dynamic more a three season material and not windproof enough for serious winter use. I like hiking with a (old) Mammut Chamo...

Arc'teryx Switchback Shirt
Not exactly known for (ultra) lightweight gear this one has won it's place in my lightweight kit list. It's a stretch windproof, water resistant pull over which is rather tight fitting. It weighs jus...
