I've used the Epic Jacket for many trips to the North Cascades where the rain showers last for hours. The jacket has always kept me dry, and it’s well ventilated. The Epic is lightweight (less than 1lb) and doesn't take up much room in my pack. My only complaint with coat is that the zipper has gotten caught on the fabric a few times on the pit vent. Other than that, it's been an outstanding rain coat.

I've used the MSR Whisperlite stove for years. It's an outstanding stove for extended backpacking trips. The stove weighs approx. 14 ounces (w/o fuel and canister weight) and doesn't take up much room in your pack. Since the stove is a liquid type stove it needs to be primed prior to use. Priming the stove causes a carbon buildup that needs to be cleaned before storage. The stove's pump is also made out of plastic which cracked after 5-6 years use. A replacement pump is available from MSR.

In Minnesota the winters are cold and windy. After purchasing this hat, I tested it out at -20 deg F (-40 deg F wind chill). My ears stayed warm, much warmer than any other winter hat I've owned. Windstopper lining around the ears is outstanding. The Dome Perigon is definitely a 5 star winter hat. Because the hat has windstopper it may be a bit warm for many folks at 32 deg.
