Layne 's Bio

I bike, I ski, I climb... I do anything that gets me out there.
Though I'm only 23 I have some good experience with the outdoors locally (Austin, TX), state-wide (Texas), and throughout the country. I love the outdoors and love to help people interested in going out there.
There's plenty of room for all of us out there!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got this headlamp at the beginning of last summer (I work for an adventure camp for summer break), I needed something I could trust to take some beatings and hard use, this was it. It was always in my pack.
I was very impressed by the brightness controls, and love the red light feature (great for night/milkyway photography). However, be advised that if you are using it for 10-15 hours a week you will probably notice the power drop by the end of the week (it eats batteries for breakfast).
If you need a headlamp, go for it. You won't regret it

So I got these new for this season and have been very impressed by these pants. These were great at slicing through deep powder and kept out the worst of the weather even on a terrible -10° day (brutal, but hey no lines). I had a great week with these pants and so will you.

I loved the price point on this jacket as a daily rain jacket I could use on camping trips as well, and I have not been disappointed. The torrent shell is completely waterproof for hours on end. The only reason to go Gore-Tex is if you will be giving it a ton of wear from climbing, if that isn't you don't get pulled into a $400 jacket, this $130 jacket will do anything you need it to.
The only issue I have had was one of the cinches in my hood popped off its glue point in the jacket, but Patagonia's Customer Service was great and they sent it back good as new for no charge.

So I got this a year ago and have loved it as an around town casual sweater. It is the most comfortable fleece I own. What I was more impressed by is its toughness, I was recently climbing around the Austin Area and was wearing it. I had a pretty good fall and scraped myself up bad (My hands looked terrible) but this thing didn't even look like it had been touched, even scraping over a granite face for several yards. I was very impressed.
I got a small and I'm 5' 10" 165lbs and normally wear mediums, I would suggest to go a size smaller than you normally would. I don't know why but Patagonia basically labeled everything a size down. The fit isn't baggy but it is comfortably loose with close fitting cuffs.
I've loved mine and so will you.
Get it.
