Hey Kel,

Neither the Resolve or the Zip Line really provide anything for warmth. If you are looking for something that is going to keep you warm on top of keeping your dry then you are going to want to look at an insulated jacket like the Kizamm:

Hey Jason,

I think trying to fit into a size 30 would be pretty dangerous if you are a high volume size 13 shoe. I think the only boot that I would suggest that we have in inventory at the moment would be the Scarpa Defenders.

Hey Lauren,

The best advise I can give would be to get your chest measurement and compare it against the provided size chart. Height and weight are too effected by the lower have of your body and could easily throw off deciding between two sizes.

If after you get your chest measurement and you are still unsure which size to get please give us a call or chat in and one of our Gearheads would be happy to help you out.

Hey David,

I think there are a lot better options for hiking and climbing that are going to be designed specifically for those purposes and honestly at a cheaper price. This pack is great for travel or carrying your books to and from class but it doesn't have the profile, support, or access to gear that I would want in a pack I would take outdoors with me.

Below are two packs of similar volume that I think would be substantially more suitable as a hiking/climbing pack.

Height and weight are both majorly influenced by the other half of your body that isn't covered by your jacket. This makes deciding between two sizes increasingly difficult when given only this information. I strongly suggest measuring your chest measurement and finding where you might compare against the size chart.�

If I were a betting man however I would put it all down on XL.
