Thanks Dylan - based on your experience, how do you think they'd be in a lighter weight for summer, late spring and early fall? http://beyondclothing.com/customize/steel-shock-convertible-pant/

Info from Cloudveil on their power stretch hoody

thanks, Smartwool Shadow
Thanks Richard How does the Smartwool Shadow compare with a power dry or power stretch option with a balaclava hood? I remember it was supposed to be light, maybe 9-12 ounces.

Patagonia Houdini Wind Jacket
My wife has had such good experience with her Houdini that I'm going to switch over from my Montane Lite-speed. I've used my Montane Lite-Speed in almost all conditions. The material has excellent ...

Montane Lite-speed
I've used my Montane Lite-Speed in almost all conditions. The fit is quite good, with plenty of room to layer underneath, without being way too big. I'm 6 ft 180lbs, 42 chest and I do fine with the ...
