Re: Blaze AC 60

I truly look forward to your feedback on its carrying/specs/etc. Looks like you two may have come up with one of the craziest (neither good nor bad:) designs in a hot minute. In the realm of Thom...

Montbell Extremely Light Down Jacket
MB just barely missed the mark w/this one. What is nearly a perfect rendition of the UL jacket, is missing some sort of waist hem retention. Whether it is an UL drawcord hem or elastic (like on the ...
