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: Suunto Core
["I have no idea if it's just mine or if they all do this." Mine never has. Seems very odd behavior to me.] Yes, certainly odd. When it first happened I thought the watch had g...

Re: Suunto Core
I've got a Core, as well as a Casio. I like the Suunto a lot more, primarily because of its altimeter mode that intuits whether or not I'm moving to determine whether pressure changes are ...

Re: watches!?!
I have both a Suunto and a Casio, both with thermometers (and other good stuff). The thermometers are about one tick better than useless. The readings are meaningless while you're wearing t...

Re: OK to leave down compressed for a long time?
I say the jacket's fine, don't worry about it. Toss it in a cool dryer for 10 minutes or so if it makes you feel better. Unless it was wet when compressed or stayed compressed for a REALL...

Re: Layering System for Those Who Sweat a Lot????
I don't exactly sweat a "lot," but like the OP I *always* sweat if I exert myself. I could be completely shirtless and still sweat as I shivered on up the trail with skin so clammy c...

Another nod for Marmot
I'm 6'5", about 205 lb. and own two Marmots (Helium and Atom). Plenty of length and girth for me. My only gripe is the zippers hang in the bag's cloth more than I'd like. Th...

Re: Windshield compass recommendations?
I got one of these: a couple years ago and am happy with it. It's hard for any compass to be precise inside the metal cocoon of your car, but thi...

Re: RE: Need belt
I have a longer torso than you, but I agree with the suggestion above. I've found only two options for myself--something with no hipbelt or my regular backpack. It's usually the latter fo...

My new mantra
"We will hike until we have to be hauled off the trail!" I bet everyone on here gets that.
