Dimensional Volume (DV) is NOT the number used by manufacturers to denote capacity. To get a cubic inch number that you can use to compare to what you're accustomed to, multiply DV by 1.5 as a rule of thumb. Bigger packs can use an even bigger multiplier - up to 1.7.

When temperatures drop, a fur ruff becomes a very useful part of an outdoor garment. The extra warmth around the neck or face area is nice, but a ruff will do a lot more than that. It will protect your eyes and face in driving snow so that you can still see out. It will also pre-heat the air entering your lungs during heavy exertion in sub freezing temperatures.

Our fur ruffs are supplied by Glacier Wear and come from coyotes taken in Montana and Alberta. We add the zipper and velcro tab arrangement that allow them to be attached directly to our Wind Cheaters, which already have the corresponding zipper and velcro halves. Our fur ruffs will also attach to another garment that we are planning to produce.

Note that these will *not* attach to the First Spear Wind Cheater. Also, this is real fur from animals that were once in the backcountry doing their thing. As such, there is natural variation between ruffs.

Edward Curtis Canyon De Chelly
When humans first set foot in a new continent, they came in small groups under their own power, bringing only the gear they needed. Most simply called themselves The People. Over time, those who chose the rougher freer life of the up country came to think of themselves as the Hill People.
