Re: Patagonia Nano-Air at windy rest stops & on move versus traditional synthetic puffy
The Nano-Air is LESS lofty than a Nano Puff and I don't think oversizing a belay puffy will be needed. I think this piece works best over Merino 1/Cap2/Cap4EW base and under a sub-10oz shell li...

Re: And . . . the updated GG Gorilla
I am seeing more and more packs being made with Robic fabrics. I am in the market for a ~50L alpine mountain pack and noticed the 2014 CAMP M5 Campack also switched to Robic 100D. I really hope thi...
