      Tester Biography:

      I am a 45-year-old male. I am 5�9� (175 cm) tall, and
      weigh 150 pounds (68 kg). I live and play in the
      Colorado Rockies. I have section hiked the entire
      Colorado Trail. I hiked Mt. Washington to Mt.
      Katahdin on the Appalachian Trail in �02. I have been
      backpacking, backcountry skiing, and bike touring for
      the past twenty years. I have climbed all 54 of
      Colorado�s �14ers� (14,000'/4,260m peaks). I get out
      on day trips into the high country at least once a
      week, year �round, and on backpacking trips several
      times a year, including at least one in winter. I
      also do a lot of outdoor travel as a wildland
      firefighter.

      Testing proposal:

      I will have the opportunity to use the Cloudveil hat
      daily in the Colorado foothills winter weather, and on
      weekly backcountry ski trips.

      One of the first items on my pack checklist is an
      extra hat, and I usually use two hats on a typical
      trip. The first phase of a trip is steep, strenuous
      climbing, working up a sweat. The second phase, after
      sitting still for a cold lunch, is a fast descent,
      often getting wet from falls in deep snow. A hat that
      performs in these conditions is critical, and I�ve
      been mostly unsuccessful in finding one (that�s why I
      carry two).

      Testing considerations:

      I will evaluate how the hat works in snowfall and
      sweating conditions. I will evaluate ventilation and
      adjustability of the hat.

      I have read the latest version of the survival guide,
      2/15/03, and agree to comply with it.

      Thank you for considering me for testing this
      interesting piece of equipment.
