My Locale Colorado Rockies
About Me I'm 45 years old, 6'4" and 195 lbs. I've backpacked in the Colorado Rockies, the Wasatch and Uinta mountains, and in Zions National Park. I mountain bike in the Colorado Rockies. I've kayaked in Yellowstone and on Flaming Gorge, and rafted the Green, Colorado and Snake rivers. My trips are usually a week long or less. I love to hike wherever I can. I'm an Assistant Scout Master and I'm often out with the Scouts. My immediate goal is to thru-hike the Colorado trail. I've lived in Utah, Ohio, Illinois, Argentina, California, and Colorado.

Re: Re: Looking for a LW Fleece Vest
I'm with the Thermawrap Vest fans on this one. My Montbell Thermawrap Vest (L) weighs 175g (6.2oz) on my scale. I bought it because I thought it would be usable while hiking and for me it has b...

Re: Re: Thoughts on JRB Stealth Quilt layered w/ WM Highlite
Good point Richard. I haven't layered my quilt over a bag yet. I had anticipated doing this in my hammock where I thought it might work. You don't need as much width in a hammock. Now that ...

Re: Thoughts on JRB Stealth Quilt layered w/ WM Highlite
Jim, I'm doing the same thing but from a different angle. I use a JRB No Sniveller for warmer weather camping and a WM Versalite Super for cold weather. I haven't done this yet, but my plan...

Re: WTB: hammock sleep gear and UL bag.

Re: Windshirts -- Breathability vs. Wind Blocking
I own a Montbell U.L. Wind Jacket and the Houdini. I'm guessing my Montbell is similar to the Helios. It isn't very breathable. Both seem to block the wind equally well. The Houdini is defi...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Bacpacker Magazine award to Big Sky
Gene, I'm sorry, I was not taking you to task. There was no need to edit your post. I was feeling guilty about my own post and trying to prevent it from hijacking the thread. I hope you don'...

Gene, don't take it too hard. BPLRank seems to be all about membership and the amount of participation, not about quality. We've beaten this to death in one of the members only forums. I wi...
