since joining this forum i've been thinking lots! lots about cutting my weight/combining i go through my heavy winter gear i've come across my NF hard shell jacket...i was thinking couldn't i use this year round?
no liner...and put over my baselayer if it starts to rain and open up all the vents...and if things get chilly perhaps put on my midweight layer over base, and this on top?

Northface doesn't make my shell - the FreeThinker anylonger
but here is a close example...mine is around 14oz;cm_vc=Search
I do it because I also helps that you are not there...
