Re: What do you think about this wind jacket ?
Personally, I like a hood. At 6 oz, it's a bit heavy for something without a hood. But if it meets your criteria, give it a go. I've not used any Berghaus stuff myself, but it's a w...

Re: They will get wet
+1 Mike Adams I second everything he said- my experience has been the same. My waterproof shoes take forever and a day to dry compared to something ultra breathable like the La Sportiva Wildcat&...

Sub-2 lb pack for a big guy
I'm looking for a 45-55 L pack at or below 2 lb. Right now, I'm using a ULA Circuit (L torso, XL hipbelt). I've very few complaints about this pack other than weight. My ULA Circuit ...
