My Locale Lander, WY
About Me I live at the base of the Wind River Range in Wyoming with my wife and dog. I love to hike all over the Greater Yellowstone area. Our goal is to lighten our packs so that we can go as far as we can, as fast as we can. I currently work for an alternative high school and NOLS.

I just tuck my backpack under my neoair. Gives the little bit of lift needed, but the neoair still keeps it soft and comfortable. Leaves me sleepin' like a baby!

Ex Light fit vs. Patagonia Down Shirt
For what its worth to others out there, I compared the Patagonia Ultralight Down Shirt and the Montbell Ex Light and I like the Patagonia way more because of the fit. I felt like the only way the ...

work just fine
I use my duomid in alpine areas all the time. I can always find anough dirt to fit the stakes in, and if they don't go in real far, I just plop a big rock on top to hold the stake down.

This was the lightest wind breaker I could find with a full-zip and no hood. The men's comes in at 2.9 oz. and the women's at 2.4 oz. Blocks the wind wonderfully and is pretty breathable. T...

Western Mountaineering Ultralight Super
I love this bag. Lofts up wicked fast, never leaks feathers, packs small (for a 20 degree bag), spot on temp rating for me and my wife. The regular length definitely runs a bit short, I'm 5&#...
