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.

I think its worth waiting for. I'm actually really surprised to see so much skepticism about it here considering the endless "down vs. synthetic" debates. If it works, than it'll ...

petzl nao first impressions
This is not exactly a UL item, but as a chronic night hiker, climber, skier etc. (not always on purpose) I took immediate interest from all the winter OR hype. My schedule often has me leaving ...

tried em on
The fit is great, with a wide toe box, and form fitting everything else. The midsole seemed substantial enough, but what really bothered me was the pods on the bottom of the shoe. There is a set of...

Alex is new to BPL, so I just thought I'd chime in to say that I'm the one who bought this from him. I told him I wanted to try to get the pack by this sunday for a trip and he sent it out ...

wraith is nice
