I bought a SMD gatewood cape recently that I will get to use for the first time this weekend on the Pinhoti Trail. (I bet not many of you know about that little trail : )

Pat, between the alti mitts and the SV bib, it looks like you have a summit bid on everest :) I was eyeballing the altis once at REI's used gear sale. Something like 50 bucks…but I didn't pull the trigger because I could never imagine a situation where I would need something that warm. They are crazy warm/bulkyNov 17, 2010 at 6:19 pm #1665468
I just got 2 Gossamer Gear backpacks a gorilla and a minipoza and a the one tentNov 17, 2010 at 6:29 pm #1665474
I got them for $159.99 so i just could not say no. Being new to extensive outdoor trips in the winter i figure i had better be over prepared as apposed to under. I would like to do a multi day presidential traverse amongst other trips in the whites this winter and i dont wanna have to stay home cuz it is to cold or the weather is crap. I may not be climbing Everest anytime soon as i dont quite have 50 g's to pay so i can play! I however will do stuff like mckinley, Aconcagua, Rainier and stuff of that sort. Figure the whites is a good place to get my feet wet first. Plus i run cold like real cold.Nov 18, 2010 at 12:50 pm #1665697

I did however just splurge on some Salomon Deemax 2 Dry winter hiking boots. Still in the box, Can't wait to hoof it up to 13k in the snow with warm dry toes.

Well today Santa (UPS) dropped off my new Cloudveil Enclosure jacket so I will be testing that out. Not the lightest jacket out there but I needed a synthetic piece. Also went and got a Black Diamond Cosmo and I love it already. Can't beat a headlamp with a dimming featureNov 18, 2010 at 9:17 pm #1665915
