Please accept my application to test the Ex Officio Storm Logic Jacket. I have
read the BackpackGearTest.org Bylaws v. 0609, including Chapter 5, and agree to
comply with all requirements. My Tester Agreement was mailed on Aug. 31, 2009.
As a Canadian tester I accept any need to pay for shipping.
If selected, I would need a size small and prefer the colour wine.

hiking frequently in 2006 and have since hiked in Western Canada, Australia, and spent 2 months backpacking in the Alps.� I spend most
weekends either day-hiking or on 2-3 day backpacking trips, with some longer
trips when I can manage them.� I also
snowshoe and ski in the winter, but don�t have a lot of experience with winter
in the backcountry yet.� Elevation is
typically 500-3,000 m (1,600-10,000 ft), in the Canadian Rockies and the
Selkirk, Purcell, and Monashee ranges.� I
try for a light pack, but I don�t consider myself a lightweight backpacker.
The next few months look like a bit of a distaster as far as backpacking is concerned,
as I pack up and move myself permanently from Rossland to 4 days in Elkford-4
days in Kimberley. I do know that I�ll have lots of time to go dayhiking and
snowshoeing though. I have quite a few vacation days, and lots of areas to explore.
�I am hoping to get one overnight in
October.� That overnight, many car trips,
and a couple of probable business trips by airplane will give me an opportunity
to test the functionality of the jacket as a pillow.� The test will run through autumn into early
and mid-winter for me, so I will have ample opportunity to test the water and
wind resistance of the jacket in rain and snow, as well as the warmth of the
jacket at a wide variety of temperatures, which could range from -30 C (-22 F)
to 25 C (77 F) during the test period.� I
am particularly interested in the packability of this jacket and warmth and
breathability as a layer for search and rescue, since I always have to be
carrying a warm extra layer, but have limited pack space.
