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. I recently picked up a bad habit called climbing.

arc teryx nuclei
from what I can tell, arc teryx pretty much copied the design of the rab xenon exactly with their nuclei, except with their coreloft insulation, & 80 grams in the torso. The xenon has been a gr...

terrex pro
I've used the terrex pros for a couple of years. I found them on craigslist for $100, which is still expensive, but since I bought them as goggles and glasses, I thought it was worth it. I don&...

For the price the bitter root is definitely a nice jacket with a good fill to weight ratio. I didn't like the fit when I tried it on, and it wasn't quite warm enough for some of the winter ...

good to go

The rab infinity jacket would also probably suit your needs well. Its 7.5 oz of down and 16 oz for a size L. My medium is 15 oz flat and its very apparent that the jacket is about half down (minima...
