My Locale Boulder, CO
About Me I started backpacking as a teenager in southern appalachia. My summers in college were spent in mountain heaven, glacier national park. Since then, I've lived and played in the high sierras, the cascades, and now the colorado front range. Walking into the mountains for a few days with a light pack never seems to lose its charm. I recently picked up a bad habit called climbing.

wtb: Arc Teryx Gamma MX Hoody (M)
anyone want to get rid of one of these offensively heavy softshells? I'm hoping to find one of the updated models (2011-). Thanks.

I just have a hunch that this will be a big deal, beyond just marketing hype. Specifically, for folks who find sythetic a neccessary part of their system now. But admittedly, I am a sucker for new ...

At a long 10 degree belay, I might find myself cold in the combo you mentioned. Couldn't hurt to test it while ice cragging though. I used a similar system for CO ice climbing last winter exce...

no...
Don't own the pack. You're question related to volume, so I thought I'd try to be helpful. I tried the pack on too, and it felt too small for my 6'1" frame.

I don't know about the exact measurements, but most rab garments have nice long arms. I couldn't find a wind or rain shell that wouldn't ride up when I was climbing and the rab demand p...

I assume you're looking into this with fastpacking in mind rather than SUL backpacking. If SUL is your goal, then I'd suggest something like the MLD burn, Zpacks Zero, or Gossamer Gear Murm...

I'm very impressed with this pack. I tried out a few packs for a planned AT thru hike (didn't pan out yet), and this was far and a away my favorite. With the stay and sitpad, the pack conforms...
