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 in the mountains with a light pack never seems to lose its charm. I recently picked up a bad habit called climbing.

the bd carbon corks are reliable. much more so than the sul carbon ones like lt4's. putting enough tork on any pole will break it, so watch for getting the tip caught between rocks or deep in s...

MB Thermawrap Parka (L, Blue), OR ion windshirt (XL, Orange), VaprTherm Insulated Sock (Vapor Barrier sock, size 12)
I've had the thermawrap for about a year, but have sadly mainly used it around town. Some plastic material lining the grommets for the cinch cords came loose in the wash, so I trimmed it away. ...

MT 110
sounds like an excellent trip. I went to many of those places last year, and New Balance MT 101's worked quite well. They grip slickrock well, and they dry quickly. The newer version is the 110...

I experimented with this a lot last winter, and VB's (breadbags) work better for me & they are lighter.

I think any of your three options would be a good bet, and probably compress very small. If you're feeling spendy get a blackrock or goosesfeet. I saw my friend's blackrock vest and it lo...
