a view of headlamps from the sub-arctic
All: I'll add my voice to those who find a red-lense useful on headlamps. Here in the Yukon with 20-hour long darkness in the winter I use a Petzl Tactikka with the red lense on the lowest ...

Denali Parka
John: What locals do in the Canadian sub-arctic is buy two down jackets with offset seams that fit inside each other. You wear both together for -40C to -60C (depending on your metabolism!), or wea...

women's prolite 4
Robert: Best of luck! I am pulling strongly for you to take a full-length Women's Prolite 4 as otherwise your feet will freeze. I looked at velcro-ing two Torsolites together with a T-rest sitz...
