About Me I have been camping since I was little with my parents. I started backpacking with the scouts culminating in the Philmont expedition where I truly fell in love with backpacking. I have been out of the game for awhile until a trip to New Zealand where I fell back in love with the outdoors and am looking to dive fully back into it. I am slowly updating my gear.

Materials
I would not say waterproof, but I did see some beading. To quote the website "increased comfort and weather resistant over nylons commonly used by other quilt makers."

Keens again
I ended up with the Keen Gypsum. They seem to be much better constructed than the Targhee IIs and had much better reviews. I did not like how the Salomons or Merrells and others felt on my feet. ...

Thanks
Yes I use trekking poles. Two sets sounds like a great idea! Saloman has some good looking choices too now that I look more.

West Coast Trail boot suggestions
I'm looking for a new pair of boots for my trip this year. I pretty much destroyed my Keen Targhee II this past year. I liked them. They were comfortable but not durable and I easily defeate...
