Here is some information about me. This is what I like to do.I moved here from Michigan in August 2010 for the "worlds greatest snow" It's a lot better then Michigan's lake effect I know that for sure. I love to get outdoors as much as possible. I camp, hike, fish, backpack and canoe a lot. If I had to rank my seasons, winter and fall would be at the top. There is nothing like snow and nothing like the smell of Autumn to let you know the snow is right around the corner. I use to play a lot of golf but the life of a board bum and my addiction to sweet gear doesn't leave a lot of funds to play much as of late. I love a good pizza so if you have any recommendations please let me know. I spent a year in Steamboat Springs CO. and if your ever there check out Gnarly Charlie's pizza in the Gondola circle. It's GOOD. I have a English Shepherd/Border Collie mix named Lucky and to offset the name Lucky I have an all black cat named Philly. I’d love to answer your gear related questions. Here is how you can contact me email@example.com, 1.800.409.4502 ext 4420.

I bought this for anchor building while canyoneering. I have a couple lengths cut for retrievable anchors with some rap rings on each end. When you enter a canyon after a storm, you need to be prepared to replace every anchor. Sometimes ghosting isn't the best approach and this spool gives you plenty to leave behind.
As in most cases in life, you should never leave home without protection for your rod. This will keep your tip safe from breaking and keep your rod nice and clean while bush whacking to your favorite hole. Highly recommended. Their are a lot of fish in the pond but without a fully functional rod your opportunities are limited.
This this is the sh*t!! For the cost it's the best deal on the site for sun protection. Has a nice carry case with small clip so you can take it everywhere. Ideal for backpacking.
If you buy the 300 gram bag, you should definitely get a scar face photo because that's a lot of chalk.
Going on an adventure? Plan on wearing 1 pair of underwear... Chose these over and over again. They dry fast so they are great for washing in mountain streams on extended trips.
Big and shady. Maybe a little to big and ridged for backpacking. The back rim hits your pack. With day packs its perfect. Great for fishing. Heavy material, super durable.
Not with just the pole and rain fly . You will need the Footprint. As long as you have the footprint you can set up the fast pitch option. http://www.backcountry.com/mountain-hardwear-optic-3.5-footprint?ti=U2VhcmNoIFJlc3VsdHM6T3B0aWMgMy41OjE6MTpPcHRpYyAzLjU&skid=MHW004Q-NON-ONESIZ
This rope is great. I'm planning on this being my workhorse rope. I'm debating about cutting it into 2x100 or some variation. Why you ask? Because this thing takes a beating. I feel Like I would get more use our of it in shorter lengths. However cutting Technora will require a wrap or something at the cut ends. Technora does not melt like Nylon or Polyester. The Technora sheath is part of the Aramrid/ Kevlar family. The Nylon core is coated to help with water but if you are constantly in wet canyon I would consider the Canyon IV with the polypropylene core.
If your looking for a rope that can take a beating (or give one) like Chuck does, this is the rope for you.
Bought these looking for a light weight work horse pant for climbing , backpacking and in general just getting down in the outdoors. They have not disappointed. I love the way they fit. I'm 5'8", 170 32-33 waist. I bought the Medium in grey and then went back and bought the khaki. I bought the shorts as well.
This jacket is awesome. I have used it for split boarding, biking, hiking, as a mid-layer and casual wear. It breathes amazing and insulates plenty if active. I did over heat for a little bit touring but it was when we were protected from the wind and snow. This might not be the jacket for just sitting around camp if it's going be close to freezing but for nice cool mountain nights in the summer it's perfect. I'm very impressed with this piece from BD and have already purchased more of their new clothing line.
Light weight is about the only thing I dig on these. They clip weird and this isn't enough to out way the 7 gram difference between these and the Trango Phase I just picked up. The phase clip much easier. I will not be buying anymore until they change the gate action. However if weight is your thing they will fit your needs perfectly.
Great locker, twist easy and smooth. handles well and clips great. Pretty light and great cost. I just bought 4 but will most likely start replacing and adding only these.
Clips easy, lightweight, great cost. I have zero complaints. I love them. I can't stress how easy they clip. I have the straight gate.
From the depths of winter through the end of spring, this bib will protect you from what ever Mother Nature throws your way. To warm, unzip the full leg zips to vent and cool off. If it is a -20 day, there is plenty of room to put on your extra thick pair of baselayer pants to keep you toasty. I have put these through the wringer. They are strong, durable and comfortable. My only complaint is the pocket space. Plan on only fitting a few very small items if that in them. 1 pocket will fit my Iphone (barely) and the other I usually keep a bard or some chews. Fit is pretty true to size. I went with the large over the medium because I do not like a euro fit but I could easily wear the medium. I mostly use these bibs for split boarding but I would use them for any form of mountain travel where snow is encountered.

My gut tells me this might have a trunk style liner. "built in brief"give's me that impression. We can have someone go take a look but it will have to wait until Friday at this time.
Here is your solution. The Optimus Vega stove is awesome. It is a canister stove with detached canister. This solves the heat issues David talked about. It comes with a windscreen and it simmers. Also, this qualifies as 4 seasons stove. This means the canister can be inverted for a higher output. For most days leave the canister right side up and your golden.
I have and use this stove.
Our number is (800) 409-4502 and my extension is 4420. My name is Kyle if you would like to talk about this or any stove we carry. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org if that is better.
This board can handle a much wider stance than 23 inches. 23 inches is the "recommended" stance width for that size. I would assume you would be able to cowboy up to the 26 in range.
Give me a call at 1-800-409-4502 ext 4420 and we can talk about this further. If email is better email@example.com.
Unfortunately, MSR does not make a shoe larger that a 30 in. However the 30in shoe is is rated for 180 - 300 lbs. If you were to add the float tail in deep snow it would increase the float and would most likely never break. I would only be a little concerned about breaking on packed snow with a heavy load on top of your weight. I would only consider the float tails if you are planning on using these in soft deep snow.
I am unable to find a picture of the liner but it does have a built in brief. Marmot describes it as a breathable mesh lining. Hope this helps.
