Love this duffel. I purchased Three Sizes Med, Large, and X Large. Are you Car camping or traveling to a place where you just aren't sure of your of first world amenities then this is the bag for you. The downside to the bag is the book reads like the cover. These are nice bags and people notice them. So keep you eye on your bag because its liable to get up and walk away from you. The durability rocks and the environment and the weather stays out. Strap it onto the roof of your car or throw it into the trunk, travel the world (its a heavier bag). Throw what ever gear you want into it. It will get there on your back or someone else's when you get tired.

Bottom Line: Expensive yes, durability and functionality superb, heavy, yes.

Bottom line: Kept my pack dry. It unfolds fast and is sort of like a fitted sheet fits on your backpack like it would your mattress and is always a pain in the butt to fold back up again. If you want extra protection you can;t go wrong. Weight definitely isn't an issue.. It weighs virtually nothing...

Snowmobiling, after-ski, mountaineering, hut trips, long walk to nowhere this jacket will keep you warm. I wore this in -10 degrees with a t shirt and i was sweating my butt off. If you are cold all the time this is the jacket for you. If you are warm all the time and like to go out in the cold this is the jacket for you. When the other layers just won't cut it because its just that cold, you want this jacket and the hood don't leave home without it..

Love to ski 70+ days a year. Love to tele. Always ski on G3's. Durable binding will take a punch and keep on going. Remember you are dealing with a wire binding - It is prone to wear so be prepared. When buying this binding make sure you have an extra wire and leather man to change out the wire if and / or when it breaks. It will happen or if you are good about prevention and you see it wearing down you won;t be stuck in the powder changing out your wire.

Mountain Hardwear has done it again. The compressor PL jacket is the best top layer or under layer for a ski day. Packs down into the smallest pocket of my backpack and is not a bulky under layer. The weight and size keep you warm on the coldest windiest wildest ski days while hitting up Vail's Back Bowls. Doesn’t absorb to much odor and breaths. Love this jacket.
