      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

BD Alpine Pants with capilene lightweights underneath for backcountry ski trips day or weeklong. You can roll up if too hot, they eliminate need for gators to a large extent, plenty of pockets. All at a not so reasonable price. But they last a long time. Just don't climb some crappy chimney in them. [There's no reason to climb a crappy chimney in anything come to think of it. ] Well, anyway, mine have made it several weeks of wear while wind shells seem to get holes in them fairly quickly and after a decade or so the coating comes off the inside all over everything. frown.gif

 

It's all a temperature regulation thing anyway and these just won't work well for some and will be the answer for others. It is just too bad they are so expensive for people to try and find out.
