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

nuclei
Out of the one's you listed, I think the nuclei's the best. I have one and I like it a lot as a BC ski layer specifically because it also offers good protection when windy and above treelin...
