Michael's Bio

I have lived all over the country but would call the Northwest and Southwest home. I have lived most of my life in Oregon and Utah. I have also spent a lot of time in Brazil and spend a month or so every year there. I do a lot of outdoor sports and have worked in the outdoor industry for quite a while so I have access to more gear then most people see in a lifetime. I love the mountains in summer and in winter and wouldn't complain if I spent 50% of my time outside.

They are good to be casual. They are not however the best boots to shovel snow in. They are not really waterproof so you shouldn't really get them wet. Here is a good pair of boots for shoveling snow: http://www.backcountry.com/store/TNF3315/The-North-Face-Arctic-Pull-On-Winter-Boot-Mens.htmlThis is what I use. They pull on real quick so you can slide them on for a quick snow shoveling session.

I have the Vista C of this and love it. It is very lightweight and portable. The batteries last a really long time as well. I have used this for geocaching and route tracking as well as to get elevation. This is a good GPS system. The only complaint I have is that it is not as intuitive as it should be to use.

My one complaint with the Lost Ranger was that it was a little heavy and should have used a higher quality down. Well this is the answer. This is the perfect bag for me. I am a little claustrophobic and the smaller mummy bags constrict me too much. This one combined with the way the pad slides into it allows me to toss and turn without a problem. It is a great bag.

The first time I used this bag I had borrowed it from a friend and slept like a baby (something I never do while camping). I immediately went out and bought one for myself along with the Air Core insulated pad. I use this as my spring, summer and fall sleeping bag and it keeps me very warm. My only complaint is that it is a little heavy.

I have one of these in various places so that I never have one too far away. The lights last forever on a single battery and it is super light. I have purchased these as gifts for people as they are so useful. This is also one of the lighter headlamps for those ultralight backpackers. It is not the brightest of headlamps but in such a small package it is a good choice.
