"High Sierra hiking, can't decide on a darn rain jacket"
I vote for a three layer event shell. I have a Rab Demand anorak; no pit zips. I used to have a very large REI Kimtah event shell; no pit zips. I don't find pit zips to be be all that effective...

"Used Toilet Paper - Pack it out!"
1.) bears dig up poo, so 2.) you pack out poo/used t.p. 3.) you will not put it in a bear canister, so you hang it 4.) hanging food is illegal in places 5.) but poo is food to bears; they will ...

"Duplex and bad mesh stretch"
I find that lowering the height of my Hex solo long drops the bathtub floor down quite a bit. On the other hand, I have no real problem with the mesh door being too tight--right on the edge perhaps...

"Stories of bad weather and how your shelter went"

"Ankle support with high boots"
