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 in the mountains with a light pack never seems to lose its charm. I recently picked up a bad habit called climbing.

Two new UL synth puffies
For a while the rab xenon was about the lightest synthetic puffy with a hood. Good to see a couple other options emerging in that same weight range: Arc'Teryx Nuclei http://www.arcteryx....
