My Locale John S. hasn't told us about their geographical region yet.
About Me Originally from Louisiana, I enjoyed camping in my Boy Scouting days and eventually became an Eagle Scout. Many years later (2002), I discovered backpacking after going on an REI multisport trip to Alaska. My first backpack was to Grand Canyon, and I was hooked!

Re: GoLite Jackets 33% of MSRP
The rust red is not the current Ether model; it should be port red? Make sure of what year you are buying. If they are the current year model, I'd like an Ether, size large Caspian blue.
