Ronnie's Bio

Growing up and getting bored in the city pushed me in my late teens to be more physically active and get out in the mountains of Alaska.
Today I hike, climb, canoe, kayak and mountain bike in the summer, and I ski (downhill and cross-country) and ice-climb in the winter.

The Sweetwater was my pride and joy for several trips into the backcountry and it served me well.
About the 5-6th time I used it I was on an aborted hike/raft trip after all our rafts flipped us into the river at 7pm with only a few hours of daylight left. It was going to be a long night. Thank goodness I had my water filter, until, of course, the pivot system cracked on me and broke completely.

I returned it. The thing has way too many moving parts. I went to a Katydyn.

When I first got the jacket I was disappointed. This was heralded as a winter jacket, but I live when I felt how light it was I thought that I was defrauded. But as I wore it more I realized just how warm it really is! It's a great fall jacket, just as long as you're wearing a t-shirt underneath. Much to warm for anything else.
I have a thin, tall build and the sleeves are a bit too short for me, but this only becomes apparent when I'm riding my bike. I would have preferred about another 1/2".

I have many jackets and this one, in just a matter of days, got more compliments on it than all my others. I love it!
