Ok, I'm looking for the ultimate waterproof shoes. I live up in Vancouver and do hiking, scrambling, mountaineering. As the winters are long we have still have snow in the mountains and I'm tired of wet and cold feet!!!
I was thinking about the La Sportiva Glacier, Karakorum or Trango. Waterproofness and some warms are the key and for sure, the comfort too. If you have ant recommendations on other shoes and brands I would appreciate it!
Thanks!

Ok, hard decision. I'm also eyeing the Western Mountaineering Antelope MF which is rated to 5°F/-15°C and has the advantage of being made of a weather resistant MicroLite XP™ shell. If you had the choice between the Marmot Lithium and the Western Mountaineering Antelope MF which one would you choose? Goal is to be light weight and warm in the coastal mountains (where also humidity is fairly high, so often lots of condensation in the tent). As regarding these two criteria there might be not much difference, how about the durability of the material?
Thanks!

I'm looking for a warm and lightweight sleeping bag for winter camping in the coastal mountains at the west coast of Canada. This years temperatures went down to -30°C, though everyone told me that usually it doesn't get as cold and I should be generally fine with a -10°C bag. So I would like to get a bag with which I'm comfy at least down to -15°C. However, I get cold very easily, and I'm seriously afraid of freezing. So what sleeping bag to get? The
lithium seems to be a good choice. Anyone used it at -15 to -20°C? Any other recommendation?
Thanks!
