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.

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...

Also if your feet are cold, it probably means that your core is not warm enough. Not to reiterate anything if you already know it, but I think more effective ways of addressing the feet are making ...

VB's
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...

+ 1 on what everyone has said so far. Had mine out 2-3 times a week skiing/ice climbing this winter/spring and I'd say its close to perfection. Amazingly warm for the weight and handles moistur...
