The North Face Verto Micro-Hoodie
Here we have the new, lightweight windbreaker by North Face. I got this jacket last month and figured I would give it a good go before I made my decision and reviewed it, so here it is. I got pretty excited about it after trying it on my first time. It was very well fitted around my waist and cuffs, and I liked how the hoodie covered more than just my forehead. I was going camping so I set it aside and moved on, until the Mighty May Utah Snowstorm of 2014. I pulled it out on my way to work one day when it was raining and found how useful this jacket really is, the 800 fill goose down insulation kept my core happy and the Flashdry technology and my body dry. So far so good
- The body of the hoodie contains 800-fill-power goose down that is extremely warm while remaining highly compressible
- Pertex® Quantum® GL body fabric is incredibly soft, windproof and boasts incredibly high strength-to-weight ratio, completely protecting your core
- Interior material features stretch nylon with FlashDry™ for superior moisture management so you stay dry and comfortable from the inside out
- Close-fitting hood fits snugly and goes easily under helmets; extra insulation makes the difference between being chilled and conquering the cold
- 2 zippered front pockets sit high on torso for pack and harness compatibility
- The North Face Verto Micro Hoodie packs into its own pocket for easy stowage
- The North Face Summit Series™ apparel is designed and tested for use in harsh environments
Recently I acquired this new folding Charcoal Chimney. It is the first of its kind, its very surprising that no one has made a folding chimney before. It fits in a standard 12 inch dutch oven and is very compact in comparison to its counter parts. I am going to go over the features then the experience I’ve had so far.
I Recently acquired the WindPro II. A long, long time ago I use to have the original WindPro and used it a lot. But more recently I have been using my MSR Pocket Rocket for backpacking trips and my main stove. I had been missing the wider stability and the more control this stove has.
If you've been hiking you know the pain and suffering that can come from rocks, sand, and stickers getting into your trail shoes; blisters, chafing, and ruined socks are common maladies. However there are a great number of low-to gaiters known as scree gaiters that are designed to block all that stuff and more, keeping your precious feet intact.
