Field Notes Volume 1 - Featuring Tailspin & the RAB Xenon-X Jacket

GEAR:30's Bryden Bowley linked up with Tailspin while taking a rest day in Dubois, Wyoming. They're both over 1,000 miles in on the CDT, so needless to say they know a thing or two about quality, and low-quality gear. Read below to see Tailspin's thoughts on the Rab jacket he uses on the trail.
