  1. So I'm in the market for a new pair of gloves for back country skiing. I saw the glove thread below but he's thinking more ice climbing. Looking to spend 100 to 150. So many options on the net just wondering what the pros like.

    Thanks Chris

  2. So the female side of the main zipper is all jacked up on my jacket and needs replaced. I'm going to contact arteryx about it and see if they'll fix it. Have any of you had to replace a zipper? Did any of you have it done locally, if that's even possible. I'm looking for the cheapest option, but not give up on quality. It sounds like arteryx is my best option but thought I would see what others have done.

  3. So I just bought this jacket last week from a fellow CCer and its too big. I love the jacket and sad to let it go. Since I don't know much about the jacket i'm just going to copy and paste his description and history. Hope you don't mind Julian.

    $125 shipped to lo. 48 OR trade for medium sized jacket of similar quality and style.



    You want bomb-proof, lightweight mountaineering gear? You got it! Manufactured back when TNF was making really high-quality climbing wear, this jacket was $500 new and worth every penny. It's constructed with the original single-layer Goretex Paclite (aka "hockey puck Paclite"). I've never had any issues with the rubber disks moving around, and the jacket has never leaked, has no damage, and has been well cared for. A great jacket for the PNW weather that I don't have to deal with now living in the Southeast and ice climbing when the weather is good. This one served me well in some absoute shit conditions on Mt. Hood and during an open bivy on Mt. Baker.




  4. I just picked up a north face ama dablam jacket and really like it but it's a size large and may have to get another. Im having a hard time realizing I'm a medium. I was wondering what fabric types you like and or jackets? I don't have a ton of dough so I like to buy used. What jackets should I look out for?
