- Please accept my application to test the Bolle Rainier sunglasses. I have read Chapter 5 of the BackpackGearTest Survival Guide, Version 0609 and I will follow all requirements. My signed tester agreement is on file.
Name: Frances Penn
Height: 5 ft 9 in (1.75 m)
Weight: 130 lb (59 kg)
E-mail: fpenn AT sbcglobal DOT net
Location: Costa Mesa, California, USA
Date: May 1, 2012
I have been backpacking for four years mostly on long weekends in Southern California with one or two 5-day trips per year in the Sierras. My daypack weight is usually 15 lb (7 kg) and my backpack weight is usually 28-30 lb (13-14 kg). I am a tent camper and have experienced all night rain, heavy winds, camping in snow once, but mostly fair weather.
I have the following backpacking trips planned which should meet the minimum use requirements:
Joshua Tree [May 5-6, May 12-13,]
San Gorgonio Wilderness [June 2-3, July 20-23]
San Jacinto Wilderness [August 4-6]
Moquith Mountain, Utah trail maintenance trip [May 20-26]
Big Pine Lakes area: [June 30-July 4, Sept. 1-8]
Test plan: I wear sunglasses every day I am backpacking. I look forward to testing the anti-fog technology, dirt and water repellency, the vented temples and the lightweight, secure fit features in these cool looking sunglasses.
Current Test Load:
I am currently testing the Hi-Tec Sports Cloud Chaser Shell and the Gregory Mountain Products Sage 55 backpack. I am currently awaiting receipt of the Columbia Ice Base Layer Lightweight Short Sleeve Top.
