    Die Montane-Sachen sehen interessant aus,
    und die xTherm natürlich auch!

    Thanks for sharing!

  • I’m interested in what RAB has coming if they’re exhibiting and you get a chance to stop by.

    I wish I could have made it to the show. I’ve been using the regular NeoAir all Summer and wanted to check out the new XTherm now that the weather is getting cooler. Last winter I had to lug around a closed cell foam pad in addition to the NeoAir to add a little warmth. Thanks for sharing the photos!

  • […] These pants are perhaps a little too minimalist for a trip like this, but it does depend on the amount of wet weather experienced. I wore them for 3 days when there was wind driven rain all day and at other times as wind protection. Overall, they were fine, though in extended rain periods they do wet through resulting in wet and possibly cold legs. However, once it stops raining they dry quickly and allow your body heat to dry you pants underneath. Probably on another trip such as this I would choose one of the following Rab Drillium trousers, GoLite Tumalo pants or the new Montane Minimus pants. […]
