Aaron, I am glad that the blue superfeet work for you as well. Before I started using them I always suffered from blister on my heel where upper lip of a stock insole heal cup is. Since I started u...

Re: Repackaging flonase nasal decongestant
I would also discourage you from repackaging flonase. In any other type of spray bottle would likely give much more of the drug per dose. I use flonase regularly and the weight of the packaging is ...

Re: Need a new lighter summer bag??!!
I have a JRB stealth, and I am very happy with it for summer use. It is a quilt and not a bag, but I feel that summer is the best season for a quilt. I also like that it packs very small. I have us...

Tilley airflow and scalp sunburn
I recently purchased a LTM6 and given the way it sits on my head I am worried about getting sun burned through the mesh crown. I am not bald (yet) but I have thin hair on the top of my head. Does a...
