    Now that you got all that gear, you're going to hit a pretty nice weather window from Tuesday morning thru the end of the week. But if you hadn't, there would have been an early season blizzard ;)

    Otterbox and similar are pretty good protection. But they also increase the size of the phone and are relatively heavy. Many phones are, IMO, big and heavy enough already, to the point that you...
