1 - I have read the BGT By-Laws (v. 0609) including Chapters 4 and 5
and will comply with all of the reporting terms and requirements.
My tester agreement is on file. As reported below, I will have
no difficulty meeting the minimum expected use requirements.
2 - Name: Jerard Adams
Location: Portland Oregon
Email: jerryaadams at yahoo dot com
Height: 6'1" (185 cm)
Weight: 195 lb (88 kg)
3 - Test Plan:
I consider myself a medium fast and light backpacker. I have mostly used mid-height Gore-Tex boots, but I would like to try out lighter shoes so these Scarpa LTs would be really interesting to test.
I’ll test the Scarpa LT shoes on at least two backpacking trips in each of the FR and LTR periods. At least 25 or 30 miles and 3 or 4 nights each trip. Probably a few day hikes also.
I’ll do some cooler trips early and some hot trips later, maybe 30 to 80 F.
I’ll do a variety of trails, some rough bouldery sections and some off-trail. Level trail, uphill/downhill.
I’ll do some wet hiking and probably a little snow. From their website it doesn’t appear these shoes are waterproof but they should therefore dry out faster and be better in hot weather where I sweat a lot.
I almost always wear light gaiters.
4 – I’m testing the Mpowerd Luci light right now.
