I am going to be doing Adams in late June, Hood later this summer and Rainier next August. I am trying to get my clothing system updated for these climbs. I am 6'4" tall (but thin); thus, the need to wear an XL for the length on many items.
There are a couple of changes that I am think about making, but wanted to bounce the ideas off of you guys and to seek some advice on other pieces.
1) Drop the 30 oz TNF Mountain for a combo of a Houdini (coming) and a light rain shell. What would be your choices for a rain shell without going too much over $100?
2) Not sure that I have enough warmth on the bottom, but my fleece pants are 17 oz and my Gortex Pants are 2.5 lbs and I don't have them on the list! Micro Puff pants with some precip pants for rain? What is the lightest pant that you could glissade in?
3) I could drop the REI Fleece and go with a Patagonia Down Sweater Vest for 7oz.
4) I am strongly considering replacing the Poseidon boots with some La Sportiva Trango S Evo GTX boots. The heavy boots are a killer during the hike into base camp.
