Great thread... After reading what all of you have. I'm convinced I am not a hoarder. (unlike what my wife claims). But... I'm a sucker for a anything pull-over, or jackets.

+1 on Jackets. I have what my girlfriend calls "too many jackets" but I don't believe there is such a thing.

Elevation is a 12oz (and there's proof that I have the same addiction).

If I absolutely have to choose it's a toss up between boots and packs. Lately Osprey & La Sportiva.

Are all these additions the search for the perfect piece of gear or the gear that fits specific conditions?

I think I could literally buy the whole Sportiva line....I think right now I have: Mythos, Solutions, katanas, Vipers, and Muiras from their rock line and the Trango S Evo Light GTX and the Trango Extremes for boots. Looking at getting the baturas and fruit boots.

Love me some sportiva shoes,

Seth

You say that like they're mutually exclusive. I have two softshells (both perfect, both for different conditions), a jacket that many would call a softshell that isn't (that's perfect, in certain conditions), a couple hardshells (you get the point)...

Bummer. Keep me in mind as an easy target next time you need to unload something.

“There are two kinds of climbers: those who climb because their heart sings when they’re in the mountains, and all the rest.” - Alex Lowe

"There have been joys too great to describe in words, and there have been griefs upon which I cannot dare to dwell; and with those in mind I say, 'Climb if you will, but remember that courage and strength are nought without prudence, and that a momentary negligence may destroy the happiness of a lifetime. Do nothing in haste, look well to each step, and from the beginning think what may be the end.'" - Edward Whymper
