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.

the mld burn is nice if you are going for low volume. It weighs less than a lb. The kumo looks good but you might consider the gorilla. Stripped down its about a lb but then you've got the opti...

I like mine b/c its super light, simple and quite breathable. Price is nice too. Since there's no adjustability, you've got to make sure it fits out of the box, so I'd order a couple si...

My size large is 9.5 oz. I wore it throughout last winter/spring with a wool hoody base. Its a great action layer with a broad temp range.

I have the ether & it does have handwarmer pockets. I love mine. I think campsaer has them on sale for a steal too.

I'm very impressed with this pack. I tried out a few packs for a planned AT thru hike (didn't pan out yet), and this was far and a away my favorite. With the stay and sitpad, the pack conforms...
