My Locale Rocky Mtn. West
About Me An outdoors girl in Denver, CO. I have a love for skiing, snowshoeing and backpacking and want to venture into other mountain sports--backcountry skiing? I just took a winter camping course with the CMC last year. I have started to get back pain with a heavier load, so I want to lighten up and meet others in my area with the same mentality.

@ Christopher
Is that how you are going to strap them? For the life of me, I can't figure out how to secure the dang thangs. :)

pit zips
If you find something with pit zips, I'll be even more interested. Seems like that will be a critical piece to a winter shell.
