My Locale Boulder, CO
About Me I started backpacking as a teenager in southern appalachia. My summers in college were spent in mountain heaven, glacier national park. Since then, I've lived and played in the high sierras, the cascades, and now the colorado front range. Walking into the mountains for a few days with a light pack never seems to lose its charm. Also a snapper of many photos. Check out my instagram for short visual trip reports and such.

Long Reg or Wide Enigma in the CO front range?
Kind of a long shot, but I just wanna see how these bags fit, so I was wondering if anyone had a long/regular or long/wide enigma that I could try on for size. I could meet you at your convenience,...

Re: Re: sun hoody
@ John, I'll PM you if it doesn't end up working out. @Woubeir One of my ski/hiking buddies uses and loves his sun runner cap. I may end up with something similar to that, although I fi...

@chad I'll be sure to at least post some first impressions. I'm pretty picky about what I hold onto, especially a $60 (sale) shirt, so not sure if I'll get it into the field, but I'...

I've used my io bio hooded merino shirt with a visor for sun protection the last couple years & at this point,I definitely prefer it over any visor/bandana or unweildy Sunday afternoon hat ...

NIke terra kiger/wildhorse
I'd agree that the helios and the sparks are both good bets based on your description. I'd add the Nike Terra Kiger and Zoom Wildhorse (similar shoes) to your list as well. The terra kiger ...
