As much as I hated to see my Mont-Bell UL Down Inner Jacket go, I felt that it was only right to do so.
Now that I am really focusing on my AT thru hike in 2013, when I make a gear purchase, I am really asking myself, “Is this something I will want to use for my thru hike?” And while I think that the UL Down Inner jacket would have been ok for the hike, I figure the Parka will be just a little better, and for only 2 oz more. So, I swallowed my pride, and returned the jacket for the Parka…
Looking for something?
