Feverishly - that would describe things best right now. Cranking out gear for racers all week non-stop. Finally I took a break last night to work on my own stuff. I'm heading out of town this weekend to one of the colder mountain places I can think of. So I made some progress on my gear for that:
First I went to town on my climbing pack. I was never happy with it after I made it with haste last April. So after an extensive session with the seam ripper I added VX gussets to the back with sleeping pad loops then a collapsible crampon pouch on the center panel. From there I made a new extension and main closure. The difference is amazing. Its a totally different pack!
I also found out my overboots fit on my ski boots.. and fit in both my splitboard bindings..
and my mountaineering skis.
the down booties were looking pretty lame at their 10 year birthday, so I ripped open the back and stuffed them full of primaloft chunks.
I love gear.
