at the 40% off price it makes the decision a lot easier

vertical baffels just don't do it for me
i like the ability to shift down around. eb has everything at 40% off through 10PM PST on 8/12. use code "green" and the all in price including tax and shipping should be around $320.

it’s more than a coincidence that 3 of us here (if there was a here) that are 6’1”, are running similar setups, paring a 58 cm axe with an ice tool.

do you wear undies under the tights or just go cammando?
depends on how long the trip will be, the expected temperature and what if anything i'm planning on wearing over them. i'm a big fan of ua heatgear boxerbriefs.

+1 on mark and justin's comments. also,
i like tights as part of my layering system because there's less binding and bunching up that you sometimes get with loose fitting long underwear. they also help protect against chaffing and h...
