I wear this jacket less for actual physical activities and more just out and about. I find a wee bit to warm to wear when I'm doing anything physical, but plenty warm for around town during the winter months. That being said if you don't run hot then this would make an amazing layering piece to wear in the winter months. It breaths exceptionally well and does a great job on those non windy days.

So I've had this pack for almost a year now and have used it on many multi day backpacking trips. At 50 liters it a great size to take with you out in the woods for 3 or 4 days no problem and could easily do longer in the warmer months when you aren't bring as much stuff with you. At first I wasn't sure if I liked the hip belt but I have to say I am impressed with the amount of weight you can comfortably carry in this pack. I wouldn't hesitate buying this pack. Arcteryx makes some pretty amazing products and this is one of them!

This is a great shoe, one of the best approach shoes I've ever worn. I've worn them on backpacking trips as well on several occasions and have never had an issue. They are super stiff which I like in my shoes and boots and after having been worn constantly for the past 8 months they are still very stiff and supportive.

This is a great pack. It may not be the lightest pack for its volume, but that being said it more than makes up for that in it's fit and ability to carry heavy loads comfortably. If you're looking for an ultralight pack I would skip this, but if you are looking for a light pack that can handle heavy loads and is super comfortable this is the pack for you.

The prolight is the thin version in the prolight series. This may not be as lite as the neoAir pad, and may pack down to a bit larger size, but that being said this is an amazing pad if you sleep on your back as I do. I recently used it up in the Tetons and I was amazed at how comfortable this pad is. I do sometimes sleep on my side but when pack size and weight matter, this is my go to pad now for sure. It's super durable and self inflates real quick, if you're like me though and you get into camp late you can always inflate it yourself real quickly say about 20 secs. All in all super pad for the warmer months that packs down real small and provides plenty of comfort at night.

This is a great helmet, I bought it the other day to replace a rudy project helmet and I have been very pleased with my purchase. It is not the lightest Giro helmet, that being said it is still super light and fits my noggin amazingly! I use it as my commuter helmet to get to and from work. It vents super well and keeps my head nice and cool. Did I mention how great it fits, I hardly know its there.
