My Locale Pacific Northwest
About Me I'm a flatlander hick from southeast Texas who fell in love with the mountains after spending two summers in New Mexico and one in Colorado. I was mostly a dayhiker until my kids got old enough that I wasn't spending every spare minute at a game or recital. Now I get out for multiday trips 4-5 times a year. I like to keep moving, cover a lot of ground. Not big on lounging around, even if it's gorgeous. I don't like out-and-backs. There's just too much of Creation to see!

Re: Re: WANTED: UL backpack for large man
I agree with Ken--you ain't all that large. Unless you're all torso, you should have lots of pack options. FWIW, I'm 6'5", 207, and love my ULA Catalyst.

Re: Anyone have experience with the Brunton OSS series compasses?
I have a low-end Brunton. Don't like it at all. The needle seems loose and wobbly, always seems imprecise. It's hard to tell when the red (which ain't red) is in the shed unless I...

Re: Suunto Core v Casio PAG240-1
I have both a Core and a low-end Casio. I've only had the Casio for about a couple weeks and haven't yet used it on a hike, so consider that in reading my comments. At this point, I'...

Re: Kahtoola Microspikes fit properly?
Mine fit like piano strings--no slack at all.

Re: Re: auto adjust
"So it adjusts automatically the measured pressure at a fixed altitude ? Well, maybe that is not as good. My altimeter is also being used as a weather evolution instrument and a change in pres...

Re: Outdoor Research sizing for tall people (photos)
For tall sizes that fit actual tall people, I've had good luck with Eddie Bauer/First Ascent.

Re: non-toxic bug juice ???
I am far more concerned about slathering liquid chemicals, including DEET, on my porous skin than using Permethrin treated clothes. Permethrin has been studied extensively and used extensively by ...
