Yep.

Love the Vector. (Not sure it would replace the Rolex, though... :wink: )

It is cut perfectly for a cimber's body and is the most versatile piece of clothing I own. [...] I guess enough people complained because Marmot came out with a 'Classic' Driclime windshirt. I bought it and it is exactly like my first one. I should have bought two.


Based on reviews like this one, I snagged a Classic DriClime Windshirt at REI for about $45 bones during one of their clearance sales earlier this winter. Haven't had the right opportunity to wear it yet, but am looking forward to testing it out.

I have one, and it would've made my perfect gear list, if they just made a women-specific version as well. Because of a men's cut the fit is not too perfect, but yeah, the piece is a bomber. I would live in it, if the fit was more flattering.

Almost forgot, the Arc'Teryx Epsilon SV. The only jacket that really fits me perfectly. Too bad they don't make it anymore. But that thing is the perfect size for me.

Dumb question:

Can it deal with the weather and wind on Denali?

Good idea for a thread. This is what comes to mind:
- Mammut ropes (IMHO, the best ropes on the market)
- Camelbak packs and 100oz. pouches (on my 3rd pack; love them for day trips)
- Patagonia Houdini ultra-light jacket (on my 4th one - my favorite piece of clothing for summer alpine routes)
- Tyvek for tent/bivy floor, gear sorting, and other general use
- La Sportiva Exum Ridge approach shoes (on my 5th pair)
- Patagonia Winter Guide pants
- Western Mountaineering sleeping bags
