Patagonia–Men’s Capilene® 2 T-Shirt

pata_capilene2t-shirt一件簡單的短袖排汗衫,除了要有快乾防臭的功用外,你還會有什麼的期望或要求呢?有的,不過實在太過過份,自己也不好意思提出,就是保暖了,什麼??是不是有點兒矛盾呢?一個人會流汗是因為太熱…….但我確實有很多這樣的經驗︰

1. 比賽在清晨開始,但是在等待開跑前非常非常凍,行李卻已經寄存,外套又沒有了….

>那麼穿著外套比賽好嗎?當然不可能,跑了15mins便很熱,除下又不知放在那裡,雖然是有超輕的風褸,但始終有點麻煩。

2. 有些比賽是要上山下海的(行石澗)︰在山頂時風很大,很冷,但跑過大風的山頭可能只需要5-10mins,怎可以又穿又脫風褸呢?浪費很多時間的;另外下石澗時,潭水冰冷剌骨,弄濕了雙腳已經很難接受,有時浸至大腿,或是濺起至身上,普通的排汗衫完全沒有幫助。

3. 這是一個我沒有想過的用途及情況,是我參考Action Asia Challenge的outfitting guide,就是在比賽時單穿capilene@1crew,當感到冷時便穿上capilene@2 t-shirt,這樣便不用換衫,又可確保排汗及透氣,但為什麼不是capilene@2 crew呢?原因是這樣穿有可能太熱,而且又會影響活動性,畢竟比賽都幾激。我在行夜山時試過這一種穿法,確實是很方便及舒適,自此之後,這件衫不單止用作baselayer穿,有時穿在排汗衫的上面作保暖也很有幫助。

當然,我是真的很怕凍的,但又很喜歡adventure的比賽,所以對衣服的要求很高,需要它簡單,卻又可以應付轉變很大很快的環境,令到我能全心享受比賽。

總結︰Capilene® 2 T-Shirt 是一件多用途保暖排汗衫

Patagonia–Men’s Capilene® 1 Crew

pata_capilene1crew第一個review就寫我最常穿的baselayer–capilene@1 crew

一向都有買快乾衫/排汗衫,初時是買nike為主,主要完因係未認識其他牌子,而且nike名氣大,應該唔會錯,但後來發覺它的dry fit有好多缺點

1. 洗兩至三次便會開始有異味
2. 非常容易鈎線
3. 又會起毛粒(唔知係乜,總之就一粒粒)

自始之後,購買排汗衫便不再單單以排汗性能衣服的剪裁唯一的考慮因素,以上三點也是很重要的要求。

試用穿過不同牌子的T-shirt去行山或露營,golite的drimove T-shirt﹑mountain harsdware﹑mizuno﹑asics﹑frank shorter running gear﹑new balance﹑north face…… 但買了patagonia capilene@1後,其他的衫已經很少穿。

–優點–

1. 舒適,有一點絲的感覺,很滑。

2. 排汗非常快,從來未試過有全衫濕透唔乾的程況(當然我是秋冬穿著它的,夏天要等多幾個月先試到)。

3. 剪裁的很好,很合我的身形(高1.69m,穿s碼)。

4. 很透氣,很熱的時候,便單穿capilene@1;風太大時便加一件薄風褸;風太大而且有點寒冷便加一件capilene@2 t-shirt或者薄fleece。

5. 能防曬,因為是長袖

6. 穿了不下10次,一點臭味也沒有

–用途–

1. 在天氣寒冷時行山,主要是秋冬時穿,或是在 晚上

2. 在天氣寒冷時跑步,多數是在晚上,或是跑山,因為好在山上風通常很大

3. 踏單車,任何時間(因為踏單車一定好大風但汗又不至很多)

總結︰capilene@1 crew是一件在涼快的天氣下穿的舒適的排汗衫。

Patagonia–Product Review

pata_log

喜愛patagonia的產品,除了因為他們的環保概念外,舒適度及外型都非常吸引,這彌保了一般行山用品的最大的問題︰實用但不美觀

不論任何的快亁衫﹑行山褲﹑行山鞋﹑fleece外套﹑goex外套…全都是實用為主,行山或去露營時確實感到舒適及保護性強,但可惜,在日常生活使用,當在市區行走,卻感到自己很異相,以前我是認為這是不能解決的問題,是一種取捨,直到我認識了patagonia…一切改觀了﹗﹗

昨天買wool2時 sales對我說,pata的優點是你可以直接穿著它去活動,不用擔心在市區時的怪相。果然,英雄所見略同。

近年來不斷增添pata的產品,也看了不少網上的review,發覺很多是英文,而且也不夠全面,所以自己也想記下一點心得,除了幫助自己記錄,也可給大家一點參考(雖然也不是很專業,但大家討論一下都幾好丫)。

夜登大嶼山昂坪(探路)

因著在聖誕節需要帶小組行山露營,晚上收拾行裝,便趕緊探路。

記下少許資料,未來可能有參考的用處。

路線簡介︰
1. 東涌 –> 昂坪 (昂坪棧道 10km/4hrs﹑上升 560m,下降 80m)
2. 昂坪 –> 伯公坳 (地塘仔郊遊徑 2km/0.75hr)

26/11/08,由10:15pm上山,12:45am到達昂坪,最後3:00am回到東涌市中心,不眠不休,確實令人心力交瘁,但感恩的是有同工相伴。
