Just ordered the Black Diamond Demon Duffel.  Needed a pack to carry stuff to the crag.  Can’t wait to get it and test it out!

Mountain Hardwear Epic Jacket
- I may not be a famous mountaineer or well known outdoor athlete, but I can tell you a few things about this jacket that may persuade you to purchase one anyway.  First things first, as a college student, money is always tight.  We all know as outdoor enthusiasts, quality equipment and gear can get expensive and you more than often times get what you pay for.  With the Mountain Hardwear Epic Jacket, you get more than what you pay for.  I have used the jacket now in numerous types of weather from light rain and snow to complete downpours accompanied by howling winds.  I have not one complaint about the jacket.  It may not be coated with the top of the line GORE-TEX brand waterproofing spray, but it can definitely hold its own.  The Velcro cuffs and dual hem drawstrings do wonders in extremely wet and windy conditions.  Even when it gets a bit warmer, the pit zips and breathable Dry Q membrane keep you cool.  If I had to pack a lightweight and very packable waterproof shell, the first one I would grab, would surely be the Mountain Hardwear Epic Jacket.
