Patagonia Micro Puff Jacket - Women's
The Perfect Backpacking Jacket
Lightweight, durable, warm...this jacket is filled with synthetic insulation, making it quick dry and also keeping warmth from escaping in cold situations. I wore this jacket on a 2 month backpacking trip, wearing it just about everyday at any given time. It’s in excellent condition and has kept me comfortable in all climates. Highly recommended.
Marmot Trestles 0 Sleeping Bag
Toasty Bag, Slim Fit
This bag kept me comfortably warm in 20 degree temperatures. I wore some base layers and socks as pajamas because I usually sleep cold. The mummy feature is wonderful. I was able to snuggle up and cover everything but my nose to breath. It’s a slim bag, so sleeping sprawled out is hardly doable. I’m still happy with this bag and TBH I sleep with it open over me when I’m at home... love this thing. It’s 4 lbs and a little bulky, but I was able to compress it down tremendously in order to fit into a 46 L pack with my other gear. I’d recommend this bag, for the features and for the price.
Arc'teryx Beta LT Jacket - Women's
The Only Shell You’ll Ever Need (and Want)
Dependable rain jacket with adjustable hood and cuffs. I kept dry and warm in this jacket while backpacking Great Smoky Mountains NP. The pit zips come in clutch on the ascent, and the pockets are comfortably located higher than most jacket pockets. I love my Beta.
