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.

@stephen - Haha, I even went as far as to try to track it back down ;) I had an ex light vest that I'm pretty sure got taken by the wind, so we'll see if I can actually hold on to this one.

borah gear down vest Borah gear is now offering a 3.6 oz (M) down vest for $100. It has 1.7 oz of down, so close to half of its weight. One of the only pieces that I've ever re...

I've used a rab demand (anorak), which I like a lot, for the last few years, but I think a full zip is probably a little better for the main reason that its easier to vent. I actually prefer p...

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...
