The durable yet lightweight material on the tent and fly make it excellent for backpacking. The tent poles are all attached making it very easy to set up-- I managed to put it together for the first time in the dark just by looking at the picture. The walls don't slope in so drastically like some other tents making it roomier. With two average sized people there is still plenty of room at your feet inside for two backpacks. For extra gear the two vestibules offer a considerable amount of space. The only downside I've encountered is that there is not enough coverage around the base of the tent on the door sides where the mesh meets the tarp floor. If a breeze hits the sides and it's dusty it can slip under the fly and come in through the mesh.

Definitely a warm jacket with a slimmer fit than most other downs. Putting it on in below freezing temps is like cranking up the heater in the cab. The fit makes it able to even be worn under a shell (I use Mountain Hardwear's Interconnect, both mediums). I only wish that different colors were made for this jacket. I'm not really fond of the blue or orange so I went with the black. I choose not to wear it to certain parts of downtown because it unfortunately can look a bit gang-land-ish, but maybe I'm just overly cautious.

I've had my Windstopper Tech for well over a year, and it has been my most valuable jacket since. This jacket has protected me on bike rides in the rain, kept the chill out on the mountain, and insulated perfectly alone under a shell in the snow. It's great for year-round wear with an added base layer or shell when its extra cold or with the pitzips open on cool summer evenings. It's also the best looking jacket of this sort that I have. The pockets are well-placed for functionality, with big hand warmers that aren't awkwardly high. If the one I have ever wears out, I'll definitely buy another!
