idk if you were replying to my question, but if so re-read and try again. i am inquiring about sleeping pads.
so obvious question here, what is the difference between these the compacts and the regular trail trekking pole? Is it just the collapsable length?
does anyone rock their sleeping pad inside of the bivy or do most people put it underneith the bivy
Such a nice jacket! windproof, 12 oz, pit zips, awesome cut, design, stretch, durability. i layer up and wear it all over snowboarding, climbing, and in the windy winters to the bar. so happy, if they made a hooded version that was almost as light weight it would be heaven for mountain climbing
weight? This should be a standard in the specs by now. When searching for outerwear for climbing weight it is important, because it addes up quickly along with all the other gear. come on BC

i throw this over my softshell when i reach a belay while climbing, and its awesome. idk if you were thinking about a softshell over this though, cuz that would probably be tight unless you sized up the softshell. heavy fabric(softshell) over high loft down tends to compress the down therefore you loose loft and that critical space that seperates you from the cold!
I think you would be alright with a large, maybe an xl because it may be tight at your size through the chest and armpit area with layers
its been good for climbing and other aerobic activities in the cold. fits great under a climbing helmet and completely covers ears from exposure. wicks sweat away very well but is quite thin and not good for real cold or anything you're doing outside where you wont be active. if you have a baclava or face mask that covers your whole head this is a great addition for extreme cold activity or for just sitting on a chair lift.
awesome brand, have last years 20 degree warm n light down and i slept outside this weekend on just a boulder pad and stayed warm. there was ice in a circle around me on the pad and covering my gor tex jacket laying next to me, it got down to 12 degrees and all i had on was a hat and thin base layer. for the price and stuff size theres nothing quality as lafuma for backpacking
yes just the top, it has a front pocket and of course the brain, but neither of them connet to the main compartment, as it would compromise the waterproofing
well that and this is an alpine climbing pack whereas the naos is specifically for backpacking and/or trekking. know that the hip pads on this are connected only by straps unlike the naos
no it will not fit, i had the same question having a 32-33 waist and i got it and had to send it back because full tightened it felt fine till i put all my gear in it, and with all that weight it wont hold onto that skinny of hips
