My Locale Lander, WY
About Me I live at the base of the Wind River Range in Wyoming with my wife and dog. I love to hike all over the Greater Yellowstone area. Our goal is to lighten our packs so that we can go as far as we can, as fast as we can. I currently work for an alternative high school and NOLS.

micropuff
Patagonia micropuff is pretty long in the torso and the sleeves. The Nano puff is not as long.

looks good
Good call on the mid and the warmer parka. I hope you have a good pair of lightweight soft shell pants and a lightweight windbreaker for hiking, I know thats what I would need.
