My Locale Moderator-JohnMuirTrail Yahoo Group
About Me Formerly from MN and NY, now in Reno, NV, I have been hiking every summer in the High Sierra since 2000. From 2000-2007, we did the High Sierra Trail (HST). Been doing the John Muir Trail since then, every year. I am the lead moderator for the JohnMuirTrail@YahooGroups.com for 2011-2013. I organized groups (without charge) for the JMT, 2008-2011 for the hike I participated in (from 5 to 8 people). I'm doing a JMT 2014 group hike again. See my Google Profile for more and top links on a variety of topics (click on "My Website URL above").

Best rainwear for a month in monsoonal summer on JMT
I just finished 27 days on the JMT, July 15-Aug 10, and in 15 years of hiking in this time frame in the High Sierras, it was the wettest I've hiked in yet. One day it rained non-stop 12 hours,...

Re: Water containers
Thanks Colin, what about Cordura (Nylon)? (Or is that fabric on the other side of the TPU, and it's only the TPU that water touches in the MSR bladders?) Roleigh
