Unique hip-zip feature

Kings Peak, UT, 13,527'
A friend said "those aren't pit zips, they're hip zips." It's a good description. When the sides are fully unzipped, this jacket provides protection from rain while preventing overheating. I also like that I can unzip the front and sides from the bottom. so the jacket drapes over my pack's hip belt. It's lightweight, packs well, and I love the red color.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've used this several times including 8-hour hikes in Escalante canyons, lower Subway in Zion, Canyonlands. It holds a day's worth of gear comfortably. For a minimalist, it may work for an overnight. It's difficult for me to find a pack that's comfortable and has good weight transfer to the hips. The Blast does it! An iPhone 5 in a Lifeproof case just fits into the hip-belt pocket. There's an internal front pocket in addition to the reservoir pocket and 2 internal zip pockets in the lid. I like that it's a neutral color that blends into the wilderness environment.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Easy to learn and remember how to use. Accurate readings. Appreciate the option to have it automatically switch back to transmit mode after a few minutes. As packaged, it's programmed to do this. Received as a gift with BCA probe & shovel; all components are very good quality.
