Heavy breathing
Hi Kevin, did you mean Patagonia coming in 3rd? That's what I would expect, but I can never get any measure of how breathable the proprietary Patagonia material is. BTW, I have some great PA...

Can anyone comment on the breathability of Patagonia's Rain Shadow and Jetstream Jackets?
I'm looking to pick up a lighter (around 12-13 ounces) more breathable shell with pit zips and good hem length - have boiled it down to Montbell's Peak Jacket, Montane's eVENT Quick-Fire Jacket and...

Can anyone comment on breathability of the Patagonia Rain Shadow and Jetstream?
I've boiled it down to the Peak, Patagonia Rain Shadow, Patagonia Jetstream and Montane eVENT Quick-Fire Jacket (last of which I'd cut pit zips into). Anyone know which material is more breath...

Peak Jacket, Patagonia Rain Shadow and Jetstream Jackets
Hi Benjamin, I'm looking seriously at the Peak Jacket. What's the fit like? 1) Is it cut true to size? I'm 6 ft 180 lbs, 42-43 chest. I usually wear a size Large. 2) How long is the h...

Can anyone recommend a great shop for customizing gear?
I used a place called Rainy Pass Repair, I think they're very good, but I found them very high priced. However, they stuck GIANT metal pit zips in a light nylon covered reversable Patagonia fleece...

Montane eVENT® Quick-Fire and Superfly and Other Light eVENT Jackets
Has anyone had experience with these jackets, especially the Quick-Fire? Montane claims the Quick-Fire weighs in at only 320g / 11oz in a size Medium, which would make this one light, highly breat...

montbell, what do you use?
Thanks Joseph. Which do you use? Have you used the Montbell? The look similar to the REI but less material (hence the weight savings). I thought the same as regards drying times. Very good p...

eBAY.com
Craig, How do you set up an auto search on eBay? Not familiar with that feature. Did you set up an outside program to crawl eBay? eBay is not only useful for acquiring used and new gear at low...

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 ...
