Medium Jam for $60! I wish the Peak was availble though. The Shangri-La 1 & 2 are available for $75 & 85 respectively. Can anyone chime in if they're worth it at those prices?

I'm looking at getting either the Women's Jam or Lite-Speed for my wife. Anyone have a suggestion for either one?

litespeed on 02/14/2011 11:06:26 MST Print View

Based on what I've read from many other BPL users, and from fitting my girlfriend, it seems that frameless packs are not the best for women, and comfort diminishes rather quickly even though the packweight may still be considered light. You could attribute this to the fact that men have stronger shoulders than women, but a lot of this is going to depend on personal build and other characteristics of the female of course. That said, my girlfriend tried on both a jam and a litespeed and we went for the litespeed.

IMO Baselayers run slim, even in the waist. Have a weird larger neck hole though

Man, I *hate* big neck holes. Serious pet peeve- thanks for the heads up! :D

So much is already sold out... Went quick.

Women's lite-speed on 02/14/2011 14:11:46 MST Print View

"I'm looking at getting either the Women's Jam or Lite-Speed for my wife. Anyone have a suggestion for either one?"


If you end up looking at the lite-speed make sure you are aware of the pack size. The older models like the one shown on the clymb site is a 39 litre pack where as the newest editions of the women's lite-speed are 28 litre . . .

More Shangri-la 2s on 02/14/2011 18:40:52 MST Print View

Just got a facebook update saying there are more Shangri-la 2s, of which they were sold out earlier. Hope this helps someone.
$84.98 is tough to beat. https://www.theclymb.com/invite-from/JoshTurner (if you're not a member yet)

I've purchased from the Clymb once in the past, my experience with their shipping process was slow, took a little over 2 weeks to arrive, this wasn't an issue for me, but might be something to consider if anyone is looking for any sort of expediency on their behalf or 'needs' an item by a particular date- look elsewhere if that's the case.

FWIW, the code for 40% off a single item at Golite.com is still valid until sometime in March.

Women's Pinnacle on 02/14/2011 22:04:05 MST Print View

I picked up an Iris women's Pinnacle for $50 earlier today. I would have loved to get her the Jam, but it didn't come in purple, which is what she wanted.

Golite clothing tends to run what they call a "athletic" cut with most base layers, shirts and some jackets. I am usually a XL and I get XXL, and that seems to be the conclusion with all sizes.
