New for 2012
this is only a few weeks old, but I've already got about 12 days out with it and I'm totally impressed. This is a great little camera that easily bests most DSLR's with kit lenses. This is a pano from the weminuche a few days ago. Fun to just hold the shutter button down and throw an arc.
Neo Air Xtherm
This is my only pad right now, and its great. Very warm, light, comfortable. I've been using my katabatic chisos since early may in the high country and just got out my warmer bag this past week. Only issue is sometimes its too hot!
La Sportiva Vertical K's
I didn't expect to like these b/c of the cushioning, but ended up loving them. So grippy they make you feel like a gecko. Perfect for boulder/talus hopping, and scrambling.
