Re: And . . . the updated GG Gorilla
I am seeing more and more packs being made with Robic fabrics. I am in the market for a ~50L alpine mountain pack and noticed the 2014 CAMP M5 Campack also switched to Robic 100D. I really hope thi...

Re: New Arc'teryx Beta LT hooded vs Patagonia R1 hooded.
Since you don't seem price sensitive, the new Patagonia Nano-Air w/ sub 10oz rain jacket like the M10 and OR Helium HD, MB Versalite, MH Stretch Plasmic, etc. are the alpine layers to have now....
