I noticed this too, but the picture of the tag says that its breathable (yes, I know...), so I'm hoping that its a similar fabric as the original Faux-dini, and that the pictures just make it l...

Picked up Inertia X-Lite refurb.
Just a note on my experience with a refurbished Klymit pad deal on eBay after reading this thread. I just picked up an Inertia X-Lite torso pad. Listed for $59.95, I made an offer of $43. They coun...

Adjustable grip hitch

Doesn't seem too bad

Trying Neo-Air Xlite, regular or women's size?
I'm 6'3", 200 lbs and don't sleep well enough on a CCF. I used a Z-Lite for the 2nd half of the JMT and sleep was just OK but not great, and I want good sleep. I have a Prolite Plu...
