Gear Finds for the Week: Fleece, Packs on 04/12/2011 00:49:21 MDT Print View

I spend way too much time searching for deals to keep them to myself:

Bula high loft fleece beanie $6 at Amazon
Made of Polartec's High Loft fleece, which apparently has their best warmth/weight ratio ever.

Bear Grylls fleece gloves - $6 at Amazon
Warm and fairly light. Small/Med. only.

Jansport Whittaker Pack $80
An interesting pack. 2007 Backpacker Editors' Choice award. Sailcloth and 840 Denier, 5lbs - it's a burly pack. Not UL, but this is an alpine pack with huge capacity, and you might be able to trim some weight and be left with some beautiful Dyneema sailcloth haha.

And Lowe Alpine's lightest backpack, the 50L Zepton, is on sale at Campmor for $120 with free shipping. This is a framed, hip-belt pack, so it weighs a little more than the packs some people here have.
