Brentonwrote a question about Mountain Khakis Teton Glass Buckle w/ Brown Belt on February 12, 2010
Outdoor addict. Mountain biking is the uno. Also dabble in road spinning. Run and swim a little. Love to backpack. Avid hunter and fisherman. Do some snowboarding.
On low you have plenty of light to do what ever you need around camp. I absolutely love this light and for the price it can't be beat.
I toted this lantern around while backpacking part of the AT last spring. It was more than enough light to play cards or cook under. Also, it helped warm the tent when snow started falling. The case is nice so you can toss it in your bag and not worry about it. IF you were wondering it runs great on the cheaper coleman butane/propane canisters.
The ski pants are supa sweet. They fit very nice. Fabric is durable and waterproof. Nice zip hand pockets and full velcro seal cargo pockets. Velcro pull tabs to tighten the waist along with the belt loops. They have plenty of room for extra underneath as they are not insulated. Nice leg vents. They fit loose in the waist for me so I had to tighten the tabs all the way. I was just wear a single thin under layer and they were tight enough to stay up but still slighty loose. I grabbed the L and they fit perfect length wise. I am 6'2" $2.10. I wear 34 squared in jeans. Get some.
The luft is toasty and feathery. The elastic cuffs awesome. They hold a seal but are very comfortable. As expected, the luft is cut on the shorter side. The exterior seems fragile but has been proven durable even when this is worn as my outer layer. The black is not too shiny. I don't like the "I have no shell so I MacGyvered this Hefty liner." look. This suits my needs. The pockets are warm if you opted to go naked hands. The fit is outstanding and allows for full movement. Overall the Luft is built to basic light weight insulation and it performs. I scored the XL and it perfectly fits my 6'2" $2.10 frame. Get Lufted.
The Welder is the fire sauce. The fleece liner is so comfortable against bare skin that I find myself turning off the heat inside just so I can slip inside the jacket's comfy interior. The jacket stretches if it needs to but the fit is so great it rarely has need. The hand pockets are very warm if you go out with naked hands. The welder and I together laugh at Mother Nature. She has used all her tactics including rain, snow, cold, high winds, sleet, and all of those in combination. I normally get cold fairly quickly in the 0 degree F wind chill days but this jacket won't allow it. Water doesn't bead but I can't complain as I don't get wet and the jacket doesn't seem wet. My one neg is the lack of tune pod compatibility. I have thought about putting a hole behind the breast pocket to run my tune cord but I haven't because my Jacket is still pristine after a couple months of daily action and abuse. I copped the XL and it fits my 6'2" $2.10 frame perfectly. I think I have fairly long arms and the sleeves are the perfect length. They allow me to move around comfortably and don't expose my wrists to the nippy winter gusts. I can even slip my Stoic Insulated Sweater under it comfortably but I haven't really needed to with this jackets warmth.
