About Me After lugging around 45lbs+ through a Nat'l Park or two, I decided UL was the way to go and haven't looked back. URL is to my Geargrams list for most of my 3-season trips. My other hobby is photography, if the destination is worth it, then add 1 to 7lbs to my base weight for camera gear. In case you were curious, my profile avatar image is Buck (aka 9 mile) Creek of the High Sierra Trail in Seki NP.

Re: Stoic Hadron Down Anorak for $72 on backcountry
Nice find. Also, no love for the pullover version? It's almost the same as the anorak, just minus hood, so a bit less weight/warmth and a lower price - $63.60: http://www.backcountry.com/s...

Re: FS: Aarn Mountain Magic 55l
Also interested. Assuming Bill passes, and depending on whether or not this pack includes the waterproof liners, I'll take it. Looks like a great solution for easy access to bulky DSLR photo ge...

David, I think you are on the right track. I've destroyed the reflective coating on more than one space blanket that way (moisture on reflective surface and rolling the blanket for storage). ...
