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.

@rick. The jacket looks good, I'll check it out. I'm still a little skeptical about the role of designated mid layers for 3 season backpacking. It ads redundancy, complication, and weig...

Yum...Hardees: a good way to get stupid heavy. 'Stupid light?' is probably a good question to ask where safety enters the equation. Not sure, but I think alpinist Kelly Cordes first use...

I'm not an expert on VB's but I think you need something a lot thinner than a cap 4 or T2. You shud only be a little damp, never soaking wet. Check out what andre skurka has to say about VB...

I love my rx100. I'm continually amazed by the quality, and its a pleasure to shoot with. Very responsive. I hadn't used a point and shoot since 2005 and my first time using the rx100 felt ...

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...
