My Locale Boulder, CO
About Me I started backpacking as a teenager in southern appalachia. My summers in college were spent in mountain heaven, glacier national park. Since then, I've lived and played in the high sierras, the cascades, and now the colorado front range. Walking in the mountains with a light pack never seems to lose its charm. I recently picked up a bad habit called climbing.

anyone tried a montane mountain star?
Since breathable windshirts seems to be a hot topic around here, I'm curious to see if anyone has used the montane mountain star trail shirt. http://www.montane.co.uk/range/men/windproof/moun...

Thanks for the feedback on the RD, Dan. I have a few windshirts I like a lot, but the fit is not great on any of them. The MEC T2 in a medium is the best fitting baselayer I've found for my 6&#...

I usually go with 2 or 3 depending on the trip. I like a very thin liner sock to sleep in (or hiking if needed) a thin pair of toe socks & either darn tough ultralight ski socks or compression ...

arc teryx nuclei & MH thermostatic hooded <$145
My xenon died, so I've been on the look out for similarly light hooded synthetic jackets for a deal. I've tried both of these on & they seem to be great jackets, close to as warm as the...

got the integral
Just a few impressions of the integral out of the package. I think its just thin enough for most rocky mountain summer backpacking. My size M was 7.5 oz, the same weight as my beloved (size L) I/O ...

Thanks for the input guys. I found a good deal on the 2013 models, about $100 with coupons at sunny sports, so I went for it. In comparison to the other ultralight poles I've used, ruta loc...

fast drying
Yeah, i'm not sure if I know of any truly fast drying wool, but the meco 120 comes close. If I get any shirt really wet in winter, I gotta change out of it, but the thinner airier weaves of woo...

nice shell not breathable
I tried this windshell & though I liked the fit, it didn't breathe very well. Nice shell anyway.

I'm very impressed with this pack. I tried out a few packs for a planned AT thru hike (didn't pan out yet), and this was far and a away my favorite. With the stay and sitpad, the pack conforms...
