Go Beyond!

2007 has been a great year for Chris and I. We're planning some really fun adventures and races for 2008 and checking out some new gear for the efforts. Beyond Clothing is sponsoring all types of athletes next year and lots of their gear would be awesome for us. They've got a wide range of options and all their clothing is custom made. Ever wish your jacket fit in the torso and was still long enough in the sleeves? Well now it can be! Just in the softshell options alone, I'm hoping to try the warm and windproof Cold Fusion Shock Jacket while Chris is looking at the ultra breathable Cold Play Shock Jacket. We're both hoping to get the tough Cold Play Shock Pants as well for some winter 14er climbs. Check out their stuff and check back here after November 15th to see if we made the cut.
