FS: LL Bean Women's 2.8oz Wind Shirt, Medium, Gray
I have 2 of these. One of the best windshirts ever made if you value breathability over all. Way tougher than the weight would suggest. Screaming deal for somebody out there! I think these were $79...

Another MYOG Trek Pole thread - 3.3oz per
Thanks for the additional info! Really helpful. You mentioned shaft extenders. Can elaborate on that? The poles I see are all 46" - that will be too short for me. I'm used to 130 cm pol...
