"JMT speed record attempt"
You're a better man than me, Gunga Ralph, in terms of this effort, which I couldn't begin to approach. Congratulations. I may be the better man when it comes to, ummm, sleeping. I'm ...

"Down jackets for 3 season use - how much down?"
Given that down is way lighter and warmer than the material in a Nano puff or fleece (8 oz.)--wouldn't two more ounces of down obviate the need of a nano, be warmer and save weight? One piece t...

"Down jackets for 3 season use - how much down?"
more down...and leave one mid layer at home. A lightweight down jacket that requires a fleece or another down vest to supplement for warmth just seems wrong. Go big!

"Would you wear this on a Sierra trip?"
I don't understand taking a skimpy rain jacket to save on weight, and then fleece to back it up. Why not one good jacket and leave the fleece at home? Especially 'a super light fleece' ...

"Would you wear this on a Sierra trip?"
Bring both the Rab and the cuben jacket with you to the trailhead. If it happens to be storming at the start of your trip, my guess is that you'll say 'holy crap!' and bring the Rab. (D...

"Would you wear this on a Sierra trip?"
