Baselayers for me too. I was going on almost a week-long trip and decided I needed a few more of these. Do you know what it feels like walking into REI store a few hours before departure and finding a midweight Smartwool bottom layer in my size on clearance rack for $20? It turns out I snatched the last one in that SKU for the whole company! Boy, that felt like winning the lottery.:)

I've got problems with backpacks, skis, running shoes, and jackets.

Mister Bean, I'm trying real hard not to buy an AT setup...but if you don't mind it on your conscience then feel free to enable.

I have no skis for sale at the moment. There's a new mountaineering ski I'd avalanche a hobo for but it simply isn't available yet. I'm actually quite happy with the rest of my quiver at the moment.

Bean, And what ski is that?

BenfromtheEast, I have an entire AT setup I'd like to part with. Skis, Bindings, Boots, Skins......just saying.

2013-14 Black Diamond Revert. The 2012-13 model is a noodle but the new version is perfect.

The revert did ski quite well, but I still want to give the BD convert a try cause the Revert is on the skinny end of the perfect waist dimensions.....

As for addictions, I don't think I have a specific addiction. Perhaps I'm still in denial?

For me it is camera equipment, which unfortunately is quite heavy.

Ski tuning equipment.

The fact that I tuned my kids' rental gear with P-Tex, diamond stones, gummy stones, etc, is surely indicative of a problem ... :roll:

Hmmm…Interesting.

I just picked up a pair of 12/13 Reverts. I know they are a softer ski, I prefer a little stiffer, but I’m looking forward to using them as a go to ski mountaineering ski. I got them off Backcountry so I can always return. Slapped a pair of Dynafits on them. Overall they seem perfect for ski mountaineering, we'll see how they ski for me though.
