Re: Evernew 1.3 Titanium Pot – ok for light cooking?
I have the evernew 1.3, and it's absolutely perfect for the kind of cooking you're talking about. Mine has been used for hundreds of meals with no problems. 10.6 oz for a pot is crimina...

Re: PCT Gear List & Backpack Advice!
On pads: I'm a z-lite user. I like the no-hassle packability and the fact that it doesn't curl up when I lay it out like a ridgerest does. Main drawback is that the z-lite isn't as wa...

No way
My fancy binoculars (that I don't take backpacking) weigh 2 lbs., and even the heavy-duty, wide strap that I have ends up making my neck sore after the end of a long day in the field. I don...

Re: Re: AT Thru-Hikers Footwear by the Numbers

Driducks
Driducks should be fine. I used an O2 Rainshield (same material) on my thru, and the same jacket lasted me the entire trail. It will keep you dry, and it breathes better than anything except eVen...

Re: Re: Re: Another PCT list.
Echoing Clint, yeah, that super sucks about Golden Oak Spring. I remember that being a wonderful little oasis after the slog out of Tehachapi Pass. We didn't start hiking out of Tehachapi u...
