Re: Marmot Ion Wind Jacket

Marmot Ion Wind Jacket
Marmot Ion owners... I currently have a breathable-but-only-barely wind jacket -- the GoLite Helios. It's been OK since I only put it on either at the beginning of a hike when it's still cold.....

Re: Re: rain jacket
Ross: The old GoLite Helios (hooded) or Ventus (no hood) jackets would fit your requirements. They are breathable, but only barely; however, they also shed rain better than most other windshirt...

Re: Summit Shelters
Glenn: I too came across recently BPL's new policy of not taking backorders and charging customers before the gear is even available for shipment. Kudos to BPL for this change! But to be fai...

Big Sky Ultra C Aluminum Tent Stakes
I've been using titanium shepherd hook stakes for years now -- loving their ultralight weight but disappointed with their suboptimal ground penetration and holding power. These stakes can be bent...

Titanium Goat Adjustable CF Trekking Poles
I received my pair and went on a moderate 2-hour hike today (approx. 2,000 ft. elevation gain over 2.7 miles -- then returning back down). I find the specs to be accurate, and the poles a beauty to...
