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. Also a snapper of many photos. Check out my instagram for short visual trip reports and such.

I agree that the wraith is what you're looking for. The lightest windshirts tend to be less breathable, but I think the wraith is an exception. Its also cut fairly slim, and its got a streamlin...

i'd second the suggestion to get an xtherm if you aren't already invested. Its a simpler system then combining various pads and it allows you to bring less insulation during the warmer seas...

bump and price reduction
$40 shipped. Not UL, but its $40. Also zips open all the way, so could make a nice travel comforter.

Vapur Microfilter I like the simplicity of this system, and it only weighs 2.7 oz total.

not a bullet pack
Eric, I'm glad you found a cheap and durable pack. The MH pack is a lot different than a bullet pack.

As a neoair user, I'm liking the idea of an MLd airframe burn. Thank you for putting in the time Hendrik. I bought you a coffee. Just make sure you're eating too!
