Re: Lightest Expedition/Very Cold Weather jacket?

Re: Tahoe Rim Trail October 20? Too late? Cold? Kids?

Re: Zpacks Arcblast for Fastpacking?
I'm sure the durability of what you want is plenty for the Arc to handle. 25 pounds is a lot for a "fast pack". For fastpaking, this would be at least a weeks trek. For 25 poun...
