Re: Re: Which Arcteryx Hardshell- puffy under or over hardshell
Justin if you're thinking about getting a Mirage you might stick with the medium Alpha or Beta shell. My large Mirage as stated above does not really fit inside a medium Alpha LT. I bet you'...

Re: Re: Re: Which arcteryx hardshell?
Given how your Alpine Start fit me I'd say I'm probably a size bigger than you Justin. The REI here carries a bunch of Arc jackets, maybe you could try one on for sizing somewhere?

Re: The gray days of November
Good post Paul. I spent this weekend repairing gear, selling unused gear and doing some MYOG stuff for the winter season so your timing is impeccable.

The Ohm is my go-to pack for trips that don't require a bear can. You can fit a Bearikade in it, but it's not very comfortable because it bulges into your back. I put a plastic frame sheet fro...
