My Locale Boulder, CO
About Me I started backpacking as a teenager in southern appalachia. My summers in college were spent in mountain heaven, glacier national park. Since then, I've lived and played in the high sierras, the cascades, and now the colorado front range. Walking into the mountains for a few days with a light pack never seems to lose its charm. I recently picked up a bad habit called climbing.

great deal
I can attest that the down borah gear uses is high quality. And I've been happy with my 3.6 vest and 6.5 oz full zip down pants. Utterly simple, they both add significant warmth at negligible w...

Alex, if you can free up the funds, I'd just order one to try on. I've got an artemis, which has the same suspension, and its excellent. I've owned a golite jam, mld burn, GG gorilla, a...

thanks for the research
Thanks for taking the time Richard. Its funny, I'd seen the strong negative (first)impressions of the anorak, which didn't match up with my experiences, and I thought to myself, this would ...

John, the cuffs are elastic. I have small wrists too, and the sleeves are nearly cinched around my wrist. The sleeves themselves seal from the down about an inch up.

wm or mb
That wm is a mighty fine choice, but mb or bc anoraks would be sufficient for those conditions as well. Though the CO Rockies are high altitude the CT stays relatively low most of the time. Consid...

I'm very impressed with this pack. I tried out a few packs for a planned AT thru hike (didn't pan out yet), and this was far and a away my favorite. With the stay and sitpad, the pack conforms...
