Re: Re: Re: Re:: $ / oz.
My best weigh savings per dollar was buying a Z1 off BPL. I went from a ~37 oz Vapor Trail to a ~3 oz Z1 for about $60 (or whatever it was). Probably less than $2 per ounce, maybe closer to $1.

Marmot Scree (softshell pants)
There is so much to love about these pants, but the little details kill any possibility of a 5 rating. So 4 it is. The good: The pants are made of Marmot's proprietary M3 fabric, which is a ...
