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

Last year I used light running shorts with 2.5 oz wind pants in the pack. Running shorts just feel fast. Wind pants came out for weather or to use as sleep pants in my quilt. Having those 4 oz MB v...

winter layering-lighter R1 hoody?
I must be bored as I've already started thinking about winter layering. Last year I wore a merino base w/ a driclime for skiing/ice climbing/hiking. This worked quite well, but I'm looking ...

OR + versalite
the cheap/easy solution would be to just ditch the rain paints. 11 oz is not bad for an event shell. Another option would be to buy an OR Helium II & those 4oz montbell rain paints. I dont ...

I agree with mike that the patagonia merino/synth blend is the way to go in warm weather. FWIW I wore a a couple pure merino T-shirts for three months strait in sumatra (on the equator) and it was ...

OR Ion windshirt-XL- Free
This is a great windshirt but is a bit too baggy on me now. Was rated highly on a bpl windshirt review a few years back. Its about 3.5 oz I'd like to give this to someone who doesn't yet h...

gg gorilla
the gg gorilla has great support and weighs a little less than a jam. I've tried on lot of packs and for me the gg was by far the most comfortable. No DIY frame necessary.

Hi simon. I'm 6'1 and a hexamid twin tarp without a bivy has worked well for me through plenty of rain storms. I use a gossamer gear polycro groundsheet at about 1.5 oz and its also pretty ...

tarp
I didn't realize you could seperate the inner from the TT to make it a tarp. Not a bad option. I prefer not to use a bivy with my tarp. I dont think bivies offer up much functionality for th...

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...
