Brooks Range

The colder the night, the more your breath will contract but it shouldn't be worse than about 2-3 breaths an hour later, and then 1 more after another hour. Sometimes you can get an imperfec...

Rain mitts
I agree with John on the Versaliners. They're just too far away from waterproof. The seams aren't sealed/taped and the fabric seems to leak almost immediately. The MEC CloudRaker Mitts (...

Mountain Laurel Designs Revelation
I really like my 2009 MLD Revelation pack. The 1.5oz cuben is great. I think it will last a very long time provided I don't take any good falls on rocky slopes. With some bungie cordage, MLD s...
