Re: BPL UL merino long johns vs Patagonia cap 4
My wife has a cap4 hoody and a smartwool hoody. She wears the cap4 when it's colder. Not bottoms I know but that's my take on it. I think the BPL merino stuff is lighter than the smartwo...

Re: Re: Expeditioning Food/Stove Ideas

Re: ULA helix versus TICA Ice tool
I've chopped with a TICA and my wife used it to follow me this summer on snow approaches to rock climbs with no complaints. It's not ideal for chopping but it got the job done in reasonable...

Patagonia MicroPuff Vest
I've had the Micropuff vest for a few months now and feel comfortable in giving a review. The vest is a total winner. I bought it for a summer insulation safety piece since it's synthetic and my bag i...
