My Locale Colorado Rockies
About Me I'm 45 years old, 6'4" and 195 lbs. I've backpacked in the Colorado Rockies, the Wasatch and Uinta mountains, and in Zions National Park. I mountain bike in the Colorado Rockies. I've kayaked in Yellowstone and on Flaming Gorge, and rafted the Green, Colorado and Snake rivers. My trips are usually a week long or less. I love to hike wherever I can. I'm an Assistant Scout Master and I'm often out with the Scouts. My immediate goal is to thru-hike the Colorado trail. I've lived in Utah, Ohio, Illinois, Argentina, California, and Colorado.

Re: The nomads were on to something...
Kevin, thanks for the report! I was anticipating a good outcome. Your experience was very similar to what I've experienced. In similar conditions I wear Ibex 17.5 micron, 165 weight polos or te...

Re: New 60L pack
I have not used an Aether 60 but I have the Aether 75 (5.2 lbs). It's a great pack and carries very well. The Aether 75 accepts an add on pouch that doubles as a day pack, which makes it very f...

Re: How about Ibex?
Definitely consider Ibex. I think they are the best. I only look to other companies when Ibex doesn't have what I want, which is very rare. They are the only company in this market I know of us...

Re: Cocoon UL pant vs. Monbell Inner Pant
John, I think the Cocoon pant will be warmer than the Down Inner pant. I've tried on the Down Inner pant, the Thermawrap pant and the Cocoon pant. The Cocoon has more loft than the others. My s...

Re: UL60 Cocoon Pants availability
Miguel, I would second Kevin's thought. I ordered a large in the Cocoon Pants. I tried them on last night and realized an XL would fit me better. They were just a little snug around my upper le...

Re: Freedoms and night vision.
Like Kevin, I carry the white and the night vision green (NVG) Photon Freedoms. I also carry the red because the red and the NVG combined make a pretty decent white light. So, if I need a lot of li...

Re: Houdini' they run small or large?
I'm 6'4" and 205 lbs and I have the large and I'm happy with the fit. I tried the XL and it worked too but had a little more width around the mid section than I wanted. I've wo...

Re: Passing Time in Camp
I like to juggle. I have my oatmeal and soup package in such a way that they make excellent props.
