  1. I have an R1 hoody as well (size M), and a Cap 4 hoody (size L) and Cap 4 hoody one piece suit (also L). But the Piton Hoody works better and is more versatile for my uses, especially ski touring. Size wise I am the same build and wear a large in the Piton. The hood and high collar are really well designed. The industry has moved away from these types of pieces it seems towards "active insulation" but they aren't as durable and honestly are just trying to solve a problem I don't have. I am starting to not wear my Piton as much so I don't wear it out!
  2. Like the title says, I'm on the hunt for a (discontinued) Mens L Patagonia piton hybrid hoody, preferably in the Purple. I have a Gray/Green zipper one that I love, but want to have a backup as it is my ski touring layer of choice. Anyone holding? Thanks!

  4. Year old thread... I know. I have been going fast and heavy by wearing my ski boots (Sportiva Sideral 2.0) for long approaches, carrying my climbing boots. But it is heavy and makes for a cold change over (twice!). However, finding patches of good snow and good skiing is certainly better on the way out with a real ski, boot, and bindings. For shorter approaches, Silvrettas continue to be the binding of choice for me. However, I have thought about making some boot soles that would attach to the ski boot like a crampon, and then have tech fittings to integrate with my touring skis.
  5. question HMG 4400 ice pack vs Osprey Aether Pro

    Black Diamond Mission 75. Relatively inexpensive, just works. Not the fanciest, but perfectly functional. Has a side access zipper if you don't like tube-only access in the big sizes.
  6. for sale Petzl Nomics (2), $300

    Ed-the-Ted: These older Gen2/3 Nomics have a hole under the pommel to securely attach some cord for a tether. You will notice many Nomic users adding some 5mm cord through this hole for their tethers. This looks like recycled 6mm Mammut Contact sling material instead of cord, but same idea. It is different than the 2018 redesigned Nomic pommel. See pictures here: https://coldthistle.blogspot.com/2010/11/old-nomic-and-new-nomic.html
  7. sold! All sorts of crampons

    I’d grab the darts, irvis and stubai if you don’t mind shipping at my expense.
  8. for sale Climbing packs - several

    I am local (Sandpoint) and would like to grab the free Khamsin packs, can certainly put them to use! Will send Pm now.
  9. Still looking for long center bars for my Darts, thx.
  10. What were the old toe bails? I am looking for a set of non-loop wire toe bails (i.e. like the G20), could potentially use your old ones. Thx.
  11. Have a set of older Darts that don't fit my size 48 boots, looking for a set of long Petzl center bars to make them fit. They are the old side lock heels (which Petzl seemed to abandon rather rapidly) so if you have a set of 'normal' heels you want to sell with the center bars I would consider it. Otherwise I may just grind off the side lock tabs and put my Grivel heel levers on. Also looking for a set of G20 toe bails (no loop) or wide Grivel looped toe bails. The standard loop bails do not fit my size 48 feet. I know I can get some of this stuff new, but in general in life I try to get used items. I figure someone must have some well-worn 'pons that aren't much for climbing anymore but that the above parts are still usable. Feel free to text 774-two-five-three-2O64 if that's easier than the PM function on CC. Thanks!
