I have backpacked extensively throughout the southwestern United States my entire life. I prefer a lightweight approach using tarp tents and trail shoes so that I can save my strength for clocking miles. I hike on average 4 m (6km) daily from my back door and also enjoy trips up to 5 days in the backcountry. I encounter elevation from 5,000 ft to 14,000 ft (1,524 m to 4,267 m) and temperatures from below 32 F to 90 F (0 C to 32 C).
I would love the chance to test the Seirus Dynomax. I find that while on the trail in the winter, my face is the one thing that I cannot cover with traditional gear. I don't own any scarves and my face is freezing, especially when the wind blows. I like that this product has a built in balaclava and face mask with the skull cap. It is like a three way system for keeping my face warm. I also like that the product is made from a thin and stretchy material instead of a thick wool type of material and that it is wind-blocking as well as wicking.
I plan on testing this cool item on many day hikes and snow shoe trips. I will get a few overnight trips in throughout the testing period, but most of my backpacking is going to be long day trips this winter. I will also wear the Seirus Dynamax while pedaling my bike through cold air throughout this winter. I can't wait to report back on the warmth and convenience of this product as well as the durability throughout a long testing period.
