for example
For example, women's Ascent 22s (80-150lbs) - can my wife get away with these if she ways 130lbs, without pack? The Ascent 25 goes to 200lbs. The men's Ascent 25 is for 125-225lbs. The...

how closely to follow weight guidelines?

Lightening Ascent and Northern Lites

Northern Lites
Ken - which models are best for all around use? I saw the BPL writeup on winter footwear systems showed the Elite model. Also, how are the Northern Lites traversing slopes?

MSR Lightning Ascent 22 Snowshoes
When I clicked on the link for them, the specs list them for users 100-175 lbs. Is there another model for heavier snowshoers?

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 ...

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 ...
