My Locale North Georgia
About Me I first was introduced to backpacking as a Boy Scout. One trip to Philmont and another trip to HH High Adventure Base and I've been addicted to the backcountry ever since. I'm finally able to afford getting some quality gear so I'm in the process of becoming UL. My favorite place to backpack thus far: Big Bend National Park. It's just so damn beautiful there. I'm originally from North Texas, so the southeast is very uncomfortable to me with its humidity. I do love having mountains within an hour drive from where I live, though.

"breathable", not quite
Unforunately most inexpensive rain pants are going to use a polyurethane laminate or coating on the inside. These are "wet layer transfer", which means that sweat has to condense on the ...

Re: Buy salomon wings sky GTX?
I too have the new Wings Sky GTX, and I can at least attest to their comfort while I've been wearing them just around town and at work to get used to them. They're lightweight for a boot a...
