The Creek, Yosemite or Southeast Sandstone
Excellent extra little energy boosters while out in the backcountry or while running trails or road. Pick and choose from the two servings per package without having to worry about messy gel packets or something too dry. Some electrolyte replacement as well which is a nice little perk. Overall excellent choice for an added boost whenever and wherever you need it.
The closest thing to what you are looking for would probably be the Khazri 35(not blue) or the Cierzo 35(blue available, but much lighter weight material).
Yeah, the flash is 2008's model. It appears that they did away with some of the lighterweight fleece at the waist and wrists. I like the older model better.
I would do a medium if you want to do layering underneath, or a small if you plan on wearing the jacket over thin layers or shirts. These run a little big.
actually, "Patagonia uses limestone-based polychloroprene for most of its neoprene products." Check out this link if you are still interested or for anyone else who may be interested in the material.http://www.thecleanestline.com/2008/05/green-neoprene.html#more
I think this is the only pair they are putting out there. You could try to give them a call and to if they have some old stock.
These pants are really durable and the dark color ages well. Gusseted, so you don't have to worry about blowing these out. Can take whatever you throw at it, be it offwidths, rough sandstone, sharp crystals, whatever! I have a couple of pairs and they go on all trips.
I use these for anchoring and any other applications where longer slings are necessary(also work nicely as a light gear sling). Better than toting around old school wide tubular webbing and gives a little more sense of security than newer ultralight spectra slings. Good median and they still look really good after a good bit of use.
This was my main gear bag for my first few years of climbing and it was perfect. Rather than having to dig through a top opening pack, you just lay it out and unzip it and have access to all of your gear. Seems like a pretty durable material, but it is pretty thin (which also means lighter.) No support whatsoever, so you may have a stray cam jabbing you in the back every now and then, but I always tried to place softgoods at the very bottom to provide a little cushion. Straps are also really thin and offer little in ways of support. I still use this bag to store anything that I am not taking in my main climbing pack.
Check out the capilene baselayer bottoms (1-4) depending on your needs.
this is in response to kurt's question
If there is one locking biner to end all, this is it! My go to for anything that needs to be bomber without giving it a second thought. This or the William are always on my harness for anchoring. The gate action, after years of use are still like new. I would buy these over any other large locking 'biners anyday.
My main harness at the moment. Purchased about a year ago as an upgrade from the focus al. I prefer the fitted leg loops, but I also do not do ice climbing, so layers are not a factor for me most of the time. If not planning on layering often, the sizing actually runs a little large and you should try this on in a store if possible before ordering. Pretty good comfort, but not the greatest in long hanging belays. I plan to upgrade again, but at the moment I am enjoying this harness.
Love my capilene 1 crew baselayer. Wear it alone on cool days or as a beginning baselayer that wicks well and doesn't snag on whatever you layer over it. Material tends to get caught a bit on rock and shred somewhat if you are not cafeful. Overall, an excellent comfortable layering piece that has a great fit.
Found one of these in a 3.5" in Yosemite, that someone apparently bailed on. Decent build, but has nothing on C4's. I hear that these are more stable in the large sizes, but i have yet to test this theory. To each his own. They are nice, but I definitely prefer Black Diamonds Design!
Won this as a festival door prize, so I can't complain about the price. Fit is very shallow and tends to ride up on your head. I find myself going for my cheap acrylic cheapo beanie before this thing. If you are willing to drop this much change on a beanie, pick up some nice wool handmade job!
