My Locale Lander, WY
About Me I live at the base of the Wind River Range in Wyoming with my wife and dog. I love to hike all over the Greater Yellowstone area. Our goal is to lighten our packs so that we can go as far as we can, as fast as we can. I currently work for an alternative high school and NOLS.

It might not really be leaky
I have the first generation Neoair and the valves are a bit strange. When I sleep on my neoair, it stays firm all night long. If I ever have mine blown up and it is left out for awhile with me la...

Acto MX
AlsoFYI: In know way would I call the Acto MX a "fancy" softshell. Its really very simple and on the minimalist end of things. Just because it is from an expensive company does not mak...

moving in cold dryish conditions
I would completely agree softshells are not for rain, that is what hard shells(rain jackets) are for. It does not rain in Wyoming in the winter, so it works well for the dry blowing snow we get he...

Osprey Talon 44
All of the Osprey Talon packs are just plain comfortable. For all of the features the Talon 44 packs, I think its weight is actually pretty amazing. Sure you could get a lighter pack, but for the co...

The North Face Hydrogen Jacket (2008 Model)
This was the lightest wind breaker I could find with a full-zip and no hood. The men's comes in at 2.9 oz. and the women's at 2.4 oz. Blocks the wind wonderfully and is pretty breathable. T...

Western Mountaineering Ultralight Super
I love this bag. Lofts up wicked fast, never leaks feathers, packs small (for a 20 degree bag), spot on temp rating for me and my wife. The regular length definitely runs a bit short, I'm 5&#...
