Sean's Bio

I am getting back into hiking after a long layoff. It is time to get back out there and see the world from the tops of mountains!! I work two jobs so time is tough, but whenever I can I get out there.

Are the specs listed here on BC.com correct? I ask because the weight is listed here as 12.9oz (and yes I read the question and answer below), but on the patagonia website it is listed at 17.4oz (using 6.2oz fabric). Here is the link to patagonia website:

I am very interested in this jacket at 13oz, but not really much at all if it is 17oz. I am in need of a light stretch woven softshell without a hood (I hate them). If anyone has any ideas on that I would love to hear them too! Thanks for the help!!

Question about the material. Here on bc.com the material is listed as DryQ Active, but on the MH website it is listed as "AirShield Active," not the DryQ Active; however, DryQ Active IS listed as a technology for this piece on the MH site. My question is this: what material is used in this jacket (as least the front facing material)? And if it is AirShield Active, how does that material compare with the DryQ Active?

Thank you for the help!!

I told myself after being burned the last time that I would never buy a pot/pan with these thin, folding handles again. However, I am looking at this set up for use when my jet boil with companion cup is not enough. My question is this: how easy are the handles to use when it is cold with cold stiff hands or while wearing gloves?

As a side note has anyone gone from using Aluminum to Titanium and noticed a difference in fuel usage? The Titanium should not transfer heat as efficiently as the Aluminum, and I was wondering if that translated into increased fuel usage or if it is not noticeable.

Thanks in advance!!!

The main difference is in the material. The LT uses Polartec Classic 100 Micro, where, the R1 uses Polartec Power Dry. The power dry is heavier (about 2.5 oz for the R1 pullover), but should wick moisture better and would be warmer. If it makes a difference, the R1 also has a chest pocket. The price is about the same, so go with works best for you. Hope that helped!
