The NW in general. Anywhere with vertical to be climbed.
I have had a few pairs of these pants over the years and I absolutely love them. I found a few pairs on sale at a different online retailer earlier this season, so I jumped on them, but when I received them the fit was all wrong. They were huge and baggy all through the butt, crotch, and legs, in a bad way. But the waist fit just right, so I knew they were the correct size. Does anyone know if Blurr changed the pattern of these pants recently to be more relaxed and much baggier? Or is what I received a fluke? I desperately hope the regular fit is still available, as these are absolutely without a doubt the best pants I have ever owned and I want to make sure the'll still be available in the future.
Crazy light, super compressible; you can't get a better ultralight insulation layer. This and my Norrona paclite shell give me insulation and weather protection in less than 19oz, and in about 1L of volume. My next jacket will be the hooded version, gives a bit heavier insulation and a hood for only 4oz more. It's like magic, I just don't know how they can make such and awesome jacket.
Normal fit; I'm 5'8" 130lbs w/ a 35" chest and the small is great.
Buy it. You won't be disappointed.
23g, full strength, perfect proportions. Best racking biner money can buy, and even at full price you can buy a lot of them. Just holing one of these in my hand and I marvel at the amazingness that C.A.M.P. was able to create in these things. Once I get enough these will be at the rope-end of all my draws on alpine ascents. Probably wouldn't want to clip anything over 9.8mm in these, but a nice sexy 9.2mm nano rope would work lovely in these. Paired with WC Heliums (my #1 fave) and you have the greatest rack ever.
Holy crap, a locking, moderately large, keylock carabiner that weights 43g. Blows me away. Bought a bunch, love them. Wild Country is making some really great stuff these days. Pair these with a rack of Heliums...
These are the gold standard of cams, the ones by which all others are measured. Double axle means large range and high strength. My cams of choice because they are proven and totally bomber, but I only gave 4 stars because they are no longer the most innovative cams; new double axle single stem cams from Wild Country and DMM are lighter. I'll add that star back on when BD comes out with the next game-changing update.
This is by far the best carabiner on the market today. Super lightweight (33g) and no notch at the nose make these my weapon of choice for both bolt and rope-end on my draws. Clips feel like butter. Also use these to rack multiple pieces; no more getting wires caught when trying to place a nut in a hurry.
Buy these, you won't be disappointed.
My friend thought I was nuts to spend $8 on a spoon, and a big metal one at that. But my first night out with it we decided to make some s'mores of the camp stove, and this was great as a marshmallow holder. Then, the next night it showed its awesomeness again as I was able to eat my freeze-dried meal straight out of the package without having to stick my hand in and get it all messy. Sure, maybe a little spendy, but I'm sure it will last for years, and it's way less than the Sea to Sumit version. Now all I need is the spork...
I love this stove! Just used it on its first outing and it performed wonderfully. I'm able to pack the stove and fuel canister into my MSR tea kettle giving me a liter of water-boiling capacity in 3-4 minutes with very little weight. Seems to be very well built and I expect years of use. The fuel valve seems to be a little sensitive, so bumping it can cause the fuel flow to be interrupted, but if you're careful while setting the burner it works just fine. Of course, it has the issues of any canister stove, i.e. not great in cold weather, but I couldn't ask for much better.
I specifically bought this stove because it said it would fit in the underside of a butane canister. Unfortunately this is not the case. The full size Crux stove burner will fold to the side, but this one is one piece. Only the pot arms fold in.
It seems to be a really great, solid stove, but it won't fit where I need it too. I'm sending it back to purchase the regular (not lite) one. If you don't need the folding then this is a good choice for a lightweight stove. I give it four stars because it still could be a good product, just not for me.
I can't tell you for certain, but I have a Pearl Jersey that seems just a touch big in a small, but this jacket is just a touch small in a small. I opted for the Medium in my case, and it seems a little big, but considering my options that seemed best.I would recommend the large in your case, but I also don't want to claim to be an expert either...Hope that helps and everything works out well for ya.
