Re: Re: Nice pix
@Nick I go home (to Vegas) every Christmas and summer and had no idea that there was any backpacking that close. I was sure that Lake Mead and the surrounding areas were closed off for foot trav...

Re: T2
I love the T3 hoodie and so couldn't pass up a chance to get a T2 hoodie for $25 plus shipping. For the record, I'm 5'9"ish, 160lbs with an athletic build and the T3 in medium s...

Re: Not Impressed. Buttermilk 40 is better at this price.
