I May Have Figured Out the Weight Savings...
The older UL down jacket's shell and lining are made of CALENDERED (flattened) nylon fiber -- same as with their down sleeping bags. MB claims this flattening process makes for a far more down pro...

I called MB's Boulder store, and these jackets are available there. They even have the color and size that I want ("gun metal" in Medium) -- even though it's not available through the website. ...

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...
