My Locale Western US
About Me Mostly 2 to 3 day loops, with a couple weeklong trips too. Debating whether to go 2 weeks or more. Lightening up but with an eye towards toughness and hiking convenience (secure drying on the trail. quick set up, etc...), but also a bit better food (and beverage) for most overnights. Then again I might want to do a spartan "fast n'light" overnight ... and the gear closet grows.
I'll update my gear list tomorrow ...

Re: Zimmerbuilt
Great packs. What are you using the top pockets for? (yeah, extra features add to the cost - was thinking of smaller, flatter pockets for mitt shells on a winter version of a Zimmerbuilt)

Fuzzy fleece, constant changes, and the Michelin man
I'm pretty much done with wind-whatever soft-shells after they couldn't repair it. I did snowshoe a bit in the LW R4 and the temp was fine as it was just lightly snowing ... just did not li...

Eric: My Wind-bloc LW R4 (less fuzzy than reg R4) had a decent temp range dependent on base-layer, but had to be constantly fiddled with. The Pata employee said great for resort slopes as a snowb...

Patagonia lightweight travel pack
They made a minimalistic pack at 26L ($79 new though they are out of stock currently) that would stuff in its own smallish lid. Some daisy chains probably for trek poles. Do not want to overstuff...
