Marmot Essence
I've owned the Essence for a couple months and have found the jacket fills the gap quite well as a windshirt, at least I see no reason to purchase a separate windshirt at this moment. I've...

Komperdell poles 4.9 oz.
4.9oz. per pole! That weight is surprisingly minimal, I'd be curious to see the kind of long term use one could get out of those on the trail. I have never used a carbon fiber product other t...
