In this podcast, we discuss this: how does clothing system for 3/4 season, inclement conditions, differ from my summer backpacking clothing?Oct 17, 2019 at 3:05 pm #3614367Ken LarsonBPL Member

Ryan….You mentioned that your Yukon Down Pullover; K Series jacket had overfill.
How much over fill did you have placed in the jacket.
Was it distributed throughout the jacket or ??Oct 21, 2019 at 3:29 am #3614970Ryan JordanAdmin

1 oz, distributed evenly. Not sure that it’s necessary, the Yukon K is a well-filled product…Oct 21, 2019 at 5:38 am #3614976Rex SandersBPL Member
“Activewear” products seem like the latest backpacking miracle – light, warm, very breathable – and expensive. Are they really that much better than fleece?

No, they are just marginally better and often are worse. It’s easy to get the wrong face fabric that kills the breathability. But for the ones that do get it right, they are generally warmer for the weight and move moisture better. None are as durable as fleece.Nov 5, 2019 at 11:03 pm #3617408David FranzenSpectator

Can’t open that link either but perhaps look at Mountain Equipment IBEX trousers @ £70/80 gbp https://pricespy.co.uk/clothing/outdoor-trousers/mountain-equipment-ibex-pants-mens–p3548469
