Re: Pricing used items
I like the color, but I like bright colors on outdoor items. I had an option to get my MK1 in green or yellow. I went yellow on the off chance I need to be found. Nice find.

Re: Re: My plan for warmth at -10
At -15F I'm in a full-on winter parka, puffy vest and/or puffy jacket and puffy pants. Along with big dumb mitts and mukluks. Have you ever been camping at -15F? What were you wearing then?

Re: Power Stretch Hoody
Also throwing it out there: R1 Hoody. Everything here looks like it is based on it. I used the R1 alone or with a Patagonia Capilene 1 SS and/or LS underneath.

Marmot Scree (softshell pants)
There is so much to love about these pants, but the little details kill any possibility of a 5 rating. So 4 it is. The good: The pants are made of Marmot's proprietary M3 fabric, which is a ...

Black Diamond Powerstretch (now Midweights)
These are my go-to liner gloves for all seasons. In three-season wear, they are are breathable and not too warm when the temperature dips. In cold and wet weather, I use them under a pair of MLD eVent...
