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.

yeah, sony is really outdoing itself on the tech side. The rx100 and the rx100m3 have really changed how I do photography in a good way. I even bring mine on local runs and hikes in the flatirons t...

Re: Re: wraith
Yeah, the wraith has great breathability for the weight and even then I end up wanting something a bit more breathable. When its really windy, my wpb does just fine. I'd love it if someone made...

sony rx100 IV
Strong rumors that sony will announce the next model in the rx100 series, and that it'll have a 4/3's size sensor but similar weight and dimensions to the current model. Oi, I wish they wou...

artemis
@chris, i've used the artemis for many backcountry ski trip with the pack nearly fully compressed and it carries really nicely. The shoulder straps and belt are soft and flexible yet supportive...

length & compression
I've been using the artemis (same design except a big zip back pocket, and burlier fabric) since feb and I find the long length to be longer than my hmg and longer than a gg gorilla. The compre...

wraith
@chris + 1 on the wraith. Its a bit lighter and noticeably more breathable than the ems, which is why i'm returning the latter.

breath(ability)
@Gary, I've found the breath test to be a pretty reliable indicator of breathability. I also have a pretty good idea of what level of breathability I'm looking for, and this doesn't hav...

not breathable
I've been on the lookout for a truly breathable sub 4oz windshirt, so I was excited to try this one out. I received mine today. Though the material has a nice texture and 2 way stretch, I don&#...

60
I can squeeze my gear into a much smaller pack, but I like having the extra space of a 60L pack so long as the compression is good. The compression on my katabatic artemis is great so I've use ...
