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.

Re: Re: Re: My experience with the BD Alpine Sport Hoody
I breath tested the alpin start vs. Rab alpine & found the alpine start to be more air permeable than the alpine. I have a Boreas which i'll check it against later. I like the fabric of the...

t2 up north
I bet the T2 would be a good layer to have later in your hike depending on when you finish. My medium T2 hoody is 6.5 oz. Pair that with a light LS synth or wool shirt & you've got a lot of...

Re: More than minimalist, less than traditional trail runner needed.
I'd second the Helios suggestion. Its probably my favorite trail shoe I've ever used. The sole is made out of this mix of foamy stuff & climbing rubber that slightly conforms to the ter...

alpine use
I'd estimate that's I've worn the alpine 20-25 days since last winter, mostly back country skiing with a pack on. It might have gotten thrown in the wash & dwr'd with a couple o...

EXTRA20 code gets you an extra %20 off. Activejunky rebar brings it down to just over $80 all told. Dammit, Dave C., I'm blaming you for my windshirt obsession.

I'm 6'2" 170. The M fits width wise but the front hem is a little shorter than I'd like. There is a fairly pronounced droptail although typical for arc teryx. The nuclei is in the ...

urban gear testing
OK, I'll stop with the urban gear testing after this (injury is a good excuse right?), but I just thought I'd add that last night was very windy in boulder (up to 70mph gusts) and I hung ou...

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...
