Is there such a thing as fabric with a zero or even negative R-rating?
Are there any fabrics for clothing that have literally no insulating ability? Or maybe even negative insulating ability (being able to cool the body better than if one were shirtless, for example)....

Re: Zpacks Arc Blast or Arc Haul
Wow, impressive. But I agree that they are very expensive. If I spec out one of their packs to include the features of the Osprey (hip pockets, pole carriers, etc) they come close to or more than $...

Re: Osprey Exos
Wow, the Exos looks fantastic and the weight is lighter than my Granite Gear and the capacity is around the same while having lots more features. Actually, I can't tell the difference betwee...

Re: Atmos 50
Haha, I'm in China at the moment so logistics would be an issue. I'm also probably bordering on a small to medium size since I'm 5'5". Ideally I would still like to try one out...

Good ultralight, durable, compact umbrella?

Good ~50L pack with "trampoline" (off the back) suspension and extension collar?

Lightweight, packable, quick drying, cool, and wrinkle-free fabrics for clothes?
I backpack a lot internationally every year, both on and off the trail, and I've got some demands on clothes that other backpackers may be able to identify with: - Clothes need to be lightwe...
