Clemente's Bio

I enjoy the great outdoors above 2000m at -15*C.

And I'm dealing with a stalker on this website!

I got these as a base layer to wear under my Winter bibs. Due to the type of material used on this knicker it's basically a Summer bib with longer leg sections. I'm 185.5cm/102kg and the XXXL fits me well. Not tight

The biggest selling factor is, however, the sale price. After buying one and deciding to keep it I bought another one! And if they're still available in another month I'll probably buy a third so I can rotate their use as I ride all Winter long.

Bought two of these to replace my old Therm-a-Rest GuideLite pad after I found a slice in it during a Jan. '0-Dark-Hundred' Winter campout at Approx -15*C. I repaired the slice with their repair kit yet the pad still had a slow leak.

If the event happened in the Summer I would have just had a lumpy, semi-sleepless night. But in Winter the pad is REQUIRED when lying on the ground so that the ground doesn't suck the body heat from you and endangering you. Where, in the Summertime, it's just a comfort measure for the most part.

The experience/lesson was very well learned for me: I will never have an inflatable pad in the Winter back country again. My trusty inflatable pad kept me comfy year-round for ten years; until it sprung a leak; in the dead of Winter no-less.

What's interesting is the similarities with the two pads: weight is about the same (680g); R-value is real close (3.1/3.4). BUT; the crucial difference: one needs to be inflated and one doesn't.

Got this for its' designed use.

I tore the material while separating the Velcro!! The material feels like 'quilt' toilet paper, and it tears like it too!

The product wrapper states that it's suppose to be 30% stronger than it's predecessor. Wow.

I would not want to trust this flimsy material with keeping me warm or being handled in an emergency situation if it can't deal with being gently handled in the comfort of one's home.

I plan on getting one to use as a vapor barrier liner IN the sleeping bag during winter excursions. It'll not only increase the warmth factor by approx. 15* to 20*F of the sleeping bag, it'll keep me hydrated as well. Two HUGE benefits for such an inexpensive price of the Heatsheets!

Of course, I'll use it as an emergency essential too!

Bought these for the need to have over pants for my snow shoeing fun.

The side adjustable tabs are very handy in adjusting waist for either layering under them or just wearing the pant alone.

There are two hand pockets, two back pockets, and one small, left quad pocket. In addition, there are two inner quad vent zips.

The inner, lower part of the pant has heavy Cordura material that protects that area from crampons or ski edges.

I gave my Scarpa Mont Blanc its' first bath.

The cleaning involved lots of desert sand, two big blobs of mac and cheese on the right boot, and a little bit of Bells Canyon mud around the outer sole. The sponge and brush did an excellent job at applying and scrubbing the boot surface.

The boots look practically brand new again!
