I purchased this wind jacket to replace my older worn wind Jacket. It to was a Marmot model which other then the color is the same as the new model. The material is a little different as well. It feels thicker and heavier. This is a nice jacket but don't believe the 3.0 ounce listed weight. I weighed mine (men's size Medium) it came in at 4.5 ounces. My old model was 3.0 ounces. I think Marmot needs to update their weight listing on this item?

This is a nice alternative between the body bag type bivies and the downsized one-man tent types. If you are looking for a lighter bivy with a little head room then this is a good choice. Weighed in at 1lb.-12ozs. The material is very durable and the entry is much easier to get in and out of compared to the slide in hood type sacks.

I decided this year to invest in some new BD C4 Camalots this year as mine were well aged. The new units are even better then the last generation. First of all, they’re super light and still just as strong. They operate very smoothly and the new loop on the end is a nice feature. The camming range is insane so it makes it easy to pick the right size the first time while hanging on a finger lock. I would highly recommend these units in the .5 -5.0" sizes. In the smaller sizes the Metolius TCU's and CCH Aliens standout.

I am really impressed with the fit of all the new Black Diamond packs. The Revelation is a great fitting, light alpine 2-3 day pack. The lack of a top lid pouch makes things simple and prevents the temptation of bringing unnecessary items. A few daisy chains or extra rear lash down points would be nice, but again it prevents you from carrying excess weight. If you’re looking for a great light, compact carryover style alpine-climbing-ski pack then look no farther.
