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.

petzl nao headlamp. I spend an unusual amount of time hiking/running/skiing in the dark, which makes this light worth its weight & price.

VR or pwerdry + breathable shell
I think the vapour rise is an excellent choice-it actually delivers on the promise of a softshell for a cold weather action suit. Good weather protection/breathability & dries fast. I like the ...

I'm very impressed with this pack. I tried out a few packs for a planned AT thru hike (didn't pan out yet), and this was far and a away my favorite. With the stay and sitpad, the pack conforms...
