shirt
maybe both :) I've sweated plenty w/ 150 weight shirts, they do dry rather quickly though you did illustrate my point pretty well that a cap3/4/R1 etc is too much for a baselayer (in most...

mid- layer

Alpine Light
if you look they also upped the down by 0.1 oz :) this is speculation, but the 2010 model also lists center back length which MAY indicate that they increased the length a little I'm sure...

Re: rbh
hmmmm- they'd probably work w/ overboots fine then (but it would have to be pretty cold to don them), I wonder how they would do w/ gore-tex shoe on their own? several relatively light gore s...

I thought I had added my review earlier on this lamp, but hadn't :) I've been very impressed w/ this diminutive lamp- if you're looking for a lamp for hours of night travel- this isn'...

@ 16 oz (pair) these are certainly heavier than some of the UL offerings, but still relatively light the FlickLock is about as solid of a adjustment as I've seen for trekking poles- I'm sur...

I'd probably go 4.5 just because of the needed velcro, but I like these enough I wanted to round up. They are breathable, they are light and they do a great job of keeping stuff out of your sho...
