The Paulie's Bio

Originally from Dublin, Ireland. Moved to Perth, Western Australia in 2005 to work as a geologist after graduating.
Although I work in the desert, I much prefer high, cold mountainsides and try to escape away as much as possible.

This jacket ticks all the boxes in the functionality section: it's warm, fits well, keeps you dry etc. The only problem I have with this jacket is an aesthetic one. I live in Western Australia, so this jacket won't even be used during the coldest winter's day. I bought it for use on climbing trips to higher, colder places. If you want this jacket to keep you warm as you prance around the high street shopping, it's not you. It's pretty ugly and actually looks like a cheap knock off you'd see along the streets of Namche Bazaar, Nepal. The colour, although described as Sapphire, is actually navy blue - nothing fancy here! To sum up, it's a great, functional jacket but hideously ugly and best left for the cat walks of the mountain side.

This watch is good but could be better. Apart from all the goods things you’d expect from this watch, there are a few flaws. I live in Western Australia and they recently (2006) re-introduced daylight savings time. Unfortunately, the core does not have a feature which allows you to calibrate the sunrise-sunset time and thus displays my sunrise-sunset time 1 hour out for the daylight savings period of the year. Also, the stop watch only goes to tenths of seconds and not the standard hundreds (but that’s not too bad, I was just surprised). The backlight is a little weak too. Otherwise, I’m pretty happy with the watch.
