I want to be sold on this pack, but this could be the deal-breaker for me... ULA’s faq states that the volume can be compressed by 2/3. I’m hoping that means it can be cinched evenly along ...

Re: Possum Down
Yep, +1 for PossumDown. I have the Possumdown Vest too, which makes a great supplement to a thin wool baselayer for winter use. Layered between a merino+windshirt combo, you've got something li...

Since these socks are sold at so many outdoor shops (and then given as gifts to us outdoors-y types!) I thought I’d post a warning. These things are junk. I took them on a trip when I couldn’t find ...
