crampons
these were mentioned above for another ski, but the design looks like what I was thinking about- a snowshoe like crampon- easy on/off, aluminum so probably not overly heavy- unfortunately fits only...

Re: Re: Re: hydration running vests for women?
I've always been keenly aware of that fact, funny manufacturers wouldn't be :) I see SunnySports has the MH RaceVests on sale for $49, guessing if it didn't work out you could recoup...

Re: hydration running vests for women?
Jenifer- also check out either the MH Fluid Race Vest or the Fluid Vest-Pack- they come in S/M and M/L- they are light, carry well and nicely laid out- my wife has one and now my daughter wants one...

Evernew
Agreed the 1300 Evernew is very nice for winter, pretty light for the size of the pot; my 900 is an Evernew as well

Solo
1.3 if you're relying on snow only; I'll use a 900 if there is some running water here and there

Marmot Hydrogen (2004 model)
first this is a 2009 model as the above poster I had WM Summerlite, great bag, just too tight for me. The Hydrogen is more roomy for myself (6' 190#). I find the 30 rating to be very accurate...

Patagonia R1 Balaclava
this has replaced my fleece hat- for the same weight I get a lot more warmth and flexibility- I can wear as a balaclava when I really need warmth, I can roll it up and use as a hat when I need less. ...
