Jon - it's my public opinion, both as a slacker and as a lifestyle artist, that you need a split A-Frame at least as badly as you need your 192 Rad-Air Tanker. (Which is to say that you need both.) If it will help with the wife for me to create a notarized statement to that effect I'd be happy to oblige.
Arbor 170 split A-Frame Wifes reaction Telling her about it What I will look like when you see me next But I agree with you!

I too bought a load of stuff this off season. And I blame all of you people.
I am so angry at all of you here for taking time and providing threads instructing me as what kind of gear is useful and showing me the stoke of the backcountry. If not for you horrible people, I would not have spent any money on any of this gear ...
So here's my list of off season acquisitions:
Whippet (just one for now)
Voile split crampons
BD Contact crampons
MHW Phantom 0* down bag
Thermarest Prolite 4 pad
High Peak Quest 65-75L pack
Got some new Solly boots, MHW Synchro bibs, and a handy lil' Canon Powershot digicam this summer too, but I woulda got that stuff anyway
so anyways, I finally feel like I have enough crap to go on some decent treks. for now at least. I know that complacency is a short-lived phenomenon in gear addicts!
