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.

cuffs
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...
