Re: Re: down pants and jacket vs sleeping bag
I've used it sort of but only in weird situations most are unlikely to encounter. If you're doing a race or event with wide temp variations...say roughly 85F to 25F...a synthetic top and...

Re: Re: First Ascent
No kidding. My wife has worn her MB alpine light jacket almost every day for at least 6 months out of the year. I bet she's got 300+ days in the thing? It's been washed once or twice and sh...

Re: pack toughness
No I survived, just had to hobble out for 7 hours with a broken ankle. The pack got to get carried out and I don't think it's broken!

cell phones are so bad, satellite phones are so bad!!! If you don't like them, don't carry one. If others are hiking around you using one, you obviously didn't plan your trip well en...

Re: How low can you go with a base layer, windshirt and rain jacket?
Probably 20s or 30s depending on a whole lot of factors. My hands get cold and need some gloves first and a hat is necessary soon after. I really don't like being cold for no reason though so I...

Re: Melanzana Micro Grid Hoodie
No weight but I'm wearing the Melanzana right now. The R1 is far better for technical things but the Melanzana is almost dailywear for me and my wife in the fall. We have both options but us...

Patagonia Micro Puff Pullover

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...
