  1. MB Thermawrap Pro fit?

    Can anyone offer some fit advice on a Thermawrap Pro? Wondering med vs. large Med Atom LT is too small in the chest/shoulders, and while my large fits well in the chest/shoulders, it's fairly baggy in the rest of the torso. I found the Med Nanopuff pullover and hoody to be a better overall fit. I've also got a Med First Ascent downlight pullover that fits very well. Generally planning to use the Thermawrap as a non-bulky, trim fitting belay jacket for ice or as an outer action layer if exceptionally cold.
  2. F/S TLT5 Mountain sz 27

    I've got a pair the tlt5 mountains in a 27. A size too small for me. I've used them 4 times for skiing and skinning and walking a few hundred yards through the parking lot. Pretty much new with the box, tongues, liner laces, and sole shims. $575 shipped to US
  3. I've got very tough to fit feet as well. Very low volume, always heel lift and blisters, bone spurs and growths on the heels, etc….tried tango extremes, nepals, scarpa guides, mammuts, basically whatever I could find. Eventually got a pair of the Sportiva Barunteses with the moldable liners and its the best boot I've used. With a good aftermarket insole and a solid job molding, I can hike miles in them with no issues and lock my heels in place with no movement at all. Sure its a little heavy on long walks and sport mixed but anything from long moderate alpine ice to steep WI is great. Order them from backcountry, get them molded, and go try them out.
  4. Moving to Seattle advice

    Wow, this thread makes me want to run. Just not sure if thats going to be running towards or away. Thanks for all the advice. A 6 month lease is a great idea we hadn't thought about. No poaching in MT. However, if the said moose looked "funny" and was posing a "threat" or looking to mate with any of your multiple wives or 25 kids its got another thing coming
  5. Moving to Seattle advice

    Thanks for replies so far. As far as driving, we live south of missoula by 30 miles. Driving between towns or to the store is typically 15-30mins on open roads. So a 20 min drive doesn't seem bad at all. With our schedule, we'd be working 3 days or nights a week and often will have 3-5 days off in a row. Being able to ride a bike or run to work sounds awesome, but DPS saying he's got access to miles of trails, climbing, etc sounds more like what we have here. Google maps has the distance at about 20 miles and that sounds pretty easy, but with no experience in a big city I have no idea how that 20 miles is in reality. I'm sure Pete would agree, 20 miles in Montana isn't something to think twice about! Keep it coming, I really appreciate the input
  6. Moving to Seattle advice

    My wife and I are looking at moving to Seattle in the near future (mid Jan) from Montana and I'm not gonna lie...going from a town of 60k people to a couple of million is scary! We'd be working downtown at Harborview Medical Center and and wondering about places to live and the commutes. I've heard from a few people about Issaquah. On google the drive is easy, but how is it really with traffic? What other spots would be good to look at with fairly easy drives into the city, but also have good out of town access for climbing/skiing/fun? Anyone here work at Harborview?

  14. Rainier Trail Food

    I agree with the eat what you want idea. However, as you go higher avoid the fatty stuff. Fats and proteins become far more difficult to digest and turn into energy as you move higher. I think that is when gu type things shine since they are designed to be absorbed easily under "load."
  15. Mt. Hood Conditions

    Anyone know about or seen the north face recently? Looking at maybe running over this weekend. I rock could be fun too. Any word on those routes?
