About Me I have a tendency to buy the display item of pieces of gear that I want because, typically, they seem to be the only "smalls" that outfitters keep in stock.

My trail name, 'demo' comes from a display Thermarest pillow I bought that has the word DEMO marked in very large letters in permanent marker.

Merino Wool L/S Zip
I own the Woolies Zip T, actually two of 'em, and it is one of my favorite pieces of gear. For me, it isn't itchy at all and the zip is nice and deep for those times you really need some...

Re: GG Nightlight / ULA Conduit
same here. I was very bummed I tried to stuff my brand new GG Nightlight pad in my ULA Conduit. I ended up just taking my Torsolite...it fits great!

Re: MYOG Materials
I'll definitely second the requests for Pertex, Cuben, and eVent. I would also like to see some of the Spinnaker fabrics...Spinn Pro would be especially nice :) thanks.

Re: Ride
Brad - I think it is just how he is wearing it. If you tighten the hipbelt up to put most of the load on your hips, then it rides up high like any other pack with some sort of frame. Of course...

Re: hows that?
i can't remember the model, but I think Smartwool has some sort of clothing in their Versawear line that is a combination of wool and a synthetic.

Re: Re: Looking for a UL Down Jacket
buying the women's version is a good suggestion. While I personally own the UL Thermawrap vest (the synthetic version), my wife has the UL down jacket...fits me just fine and is very light.

Patagonia Wool 2?
I haven't purchases any myself, but my local outfitter recently received a shipment. I went to check them out and they felt very similar in softness and thickness to my Ibex Woolies...about 18.5 m...

Montane Featherlite
I'll throw another vote in for the Featherlite Smock from Montane. Last year, I was on the scene of a really bad car accident when Hurricane Rita came up through Louisiana into Arkansas. I sat ...

My only complaints tend to line up the same as those from others. It seems, although I can't prove a shred of this, that they are in cahoots with Nalgene as bottles from said manufacturer are the...

Nice little piece of headgear here. Impressive how much warmth it adds when on your head. My typical setup is wearing a Tilly hat during an entire trip and adding the balaclava when I need some wa...

I have a story to tell, and this is why I'll never get rid of this "Wind"shirt. I guess it's been almost 2 years now, Hurricane Rita was passing through. You know, the one that c...

Ibex Woolies Rib Zip T-Neck
I completely concur with everything the previous reviewer stated. Just as fair warning, like stated above, the little ribs in the fabric do make it clingy. However, this does give it the ideal effec...

This is indeed a great little pack. On a past trip, one of my accompanying backpackers made a comment about how it looked like a oversized daypack...that made me smile. Don't let that generalization...
