My Locale Western Washington
About Me I started backpacking again in 2008, after a long hiatus---I haven't been since I was a kid. Loving learning about a different way to hike---backpacking was no fun when I was a teen-ager, stuff was too heavy! Completed my dream of hiking the Wonderland Trail in 2010, now onto more hikes in the Cascades and Olympics.

I've had both the MLD and the Zpacks mitts. I didn't find the eVent to be all that breathable, I had them on and got enough water inside the mitt to have to empty it. I also found the sea...

I've been using the pants, and have liked them. I did e-mail the company and suggest that on the pants with the ankle zippers, that they consider adding a second small pocket to the left thigh...

My boyfriend has the Tubbs Flex, finds them very comfortable and easy to use. I have the MSR Lightning Ascents, and find the bindings very, very fiddly. I have just gotten the EVO Tour, and I'...

winter emergency gear
@ Robert: I guess I should have been more clear. I was talking about what was in my pack. My rain gear wasn't in my pack; it was on my back! I ordered the Bothy 2, not the Superlight. Re...

Montbell Outpace Parka
The Outpace Parka is a decent jacket, but it has some design details that could be better. It sheds rain really well. It is pretty light and packable. Its breathability seems to be fairly good, alth...
