I tried the Rab Nucleus and Nexus jacket. They use the same fabric but thinner for the Nexus. Both have great zippers. The fit on them is very different. The Nexus is super tight with more stretch and the Nucleus is sized much larger. 99% of the time I wear a medium but found the Nucleus a bit too bulky and long especially in the arms (I am a tall/skinny guy). I went with the Nexus in the large so I could layer over casual wear. Both jackets have a very sharp look. One other thing to note is the Dark Footprint color is a brown color – check the Rab website for a picture.

The fit is a tight performance fit designed to hug and move with you with all the stretch. I was looking for something I could also use a casual layer, however, it was too tight for that purpose. Also I was not a fan of the big emblem and I thought a half ounce weight could of gave it a better zipper. But overall an impressive piece.

Bought the Fly Creek 2 Platinum, Copper Spur 1, and MH SuperMega UL 2 for a side by side comparison to choose my solo ultra light tent. All the tents were great and well designed each with pros and cons. Fly Creek was the lightest and most ventilated, however, it was the most expensive plus the fact that the back corners of the tent need to be staked out to be usable was what prevented me from keeping it. The Copper Spur had the largest vestibule and the side entrance was the most user friendly, however, it was the heaviest of the three and being a one person tent did not have as much room to spread out inside for yourself and gear. The SuperMega was priced and weighed in the middle with plenty of ventilation - just right for me with plenty of space for one person. As an aside, do not think of buying an UL 2 person tent and reasonably expect to sleep two people in there unless the second is a child.
