My Locale Chicago, IL
About Me After lugging around 45lbs+ through a Nat'l Park or two, I decided UL was the way to go and haven't looked back. URL is to my Geargrams list for most of my 3-season trips. My other hobby is photography, if the destination is worth it, then add 1 to 7lbs to my base weight for camera gear. In case you were curious, my profile avatar image is Buck (aka 9 mile) Creek of the High Sierra Trail in Seki NP.

Re: Re: Stoic Hadron Down Cardigan - $64 plus shipping @ Steep and Cheap.com
Hi Daniel, There were no smalls left the last time I saw these show up on SAC. Regarding fit, I have a few Stoic merino T's - I'd say they are more of an athletic cut, and run a bit longe...

Re: eh
Yeah, the sale is nothing special. A cheap, relatively light softshell jacket (well, light for a softshell, at least) and some eVent pants. Nothing I don't already have or need.
