APPLICATION - Slipstream Jacket Frances Penn
- Hi Derek: Please accept my application to test the Isis Slipstream Down Jacket. 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: 135 lb (61 kg)
E-mail: fpenn AT sbcglobal DOT net
Location: Costa Mesa, California, USA
Backpacking background: I have been backpacking for five years mostly on long weekends in Southern California with one or two 5-day trips per year in the Sierras. My total daypack weight is usually 15 lb (7 kg) and my total 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, but mostly fair weather.
Test Plan: I plan to wear this jacket everyday that I am outdoors during the testing period this winter. I have many trips planned in snow conditions and will extensively test this jacket in every temperature and condition available (snow, wind, rain, etc.) I currently own a Patagonia Down sweater and find it warm in colder weather. I look forward to putting this jacket through its paces.
