People ask me all the time, what I wear and what I recommend. Those two should be the same. I should only recommend WHAT I wear.
However, as most everyone who lives in Colorado, I have multiple sports and hobbies and buying for every sport can get expensive.
I have been following this site for awhile to see if they really do have deals. They do. Check out The Clymb.
It's daily deals on different brands for different sports.
I also use www.backcountry.com and www.moosejaw.com They have lots of specials!!
I have recently been trying out some "new to me" brands and really love the performance.
Vasque-the new Scree mid shoe IS ACTUALLY WATERPROOF. I was very skpetical and I have been converted to a believer!!!
Headsweats-The snowflake performance beenie rocks. It has a hole for my ponytail and is super thin. But is actually warm. If any complaint, it's too warm. But I am hot headed, I mean blooded.
Overland-The shasta is a great bag. It's over the should design is perfect for a day hike or up the mountain race. I used it in Summit For Life and loved it. It holds a bunch of stuff in the 3 pockets.
Just a few quick notes about some gear I have recently fallen in love with. And you know I am a tough sell.
As we enter the official winter months, get the right gear for you, layer it and stay warm. Warm is fun!
ps. You can always call me to talk about being prepared before we hit the mountains and POWDAH!
