I'm not a gear junkie..Oh who the FK am I kidding..
Got some bits for my autumn running wardrobe.
Le Patagonia all weather zip neck hoodie and
a Mountain Hardwear ghost whisperer hooded jacket..
I have only tried the Patagonia out once and it felt really nice. It has a mesh back wich makes the risk of boiling up or over heating less of a problem. ( I tend to cook big time!)
It has thumb loops and even a piece of fabric that folds back to act as
mitts for cold morning/evening runs. I'm 6'2 and the large sizing was spot on. (same for the MW)
The MW ghost whisperer is a pretty spectacular piece of kit by just looking and handling it. It weighs absolutley nothing and packs down in it's own pocket to about a turd size..
I'm actually looking forward for some rain and crappy wheater so i can try it out.
And some free advice.. "Never trust a guy with shiny gear".. Old climbers wisdom
