Re: "NB MT100"
I'm approaching 250, maybe 300 miles(I've stopped counting exact shoe mileage) on my first pair, 90% miles from singletrack trail running. I run in them wet and cross a lot of streams. I ...

Re: What happened to BPL Ranks???
Whoo hoo! I had no idea that the gear list was in order by rank. So at 3.11, I'd be in the top 20 if I posted a gear list! Now I gotta do it just so I can start pulling rank on nOObs! Dam...

Re: UV + heat?

Montbell Thermawrap jacket
A great jacket- my XL weighs in at just over 10 oz. with its stuff sack. Very simple, functional design- perfect for 3 seasons in the Sierras when combined with a base layer and/or shell system.
