Re: Re: Re: Tough, but light clothes for desert hiking
Any tight weave nylon supplex should work. I have throwaway gear and try not to spend much on my desert bushwhacking stuff. I found though that after a few years of abuse my Arc'teryx rampart p...

Re: Down Parka for the wife
Frostline is hard to beat for the price. ALternatively the rab neutrino has 7oz and can be had under $200 right now. It's not box wall construction but well regarded for the warmth and fit.

Re: Idea for snowshoe/crampon/short ski combo? Any potential?
I think you just described an Altai Hok for all intents and purposes, only not long enough to ski with and probably too wide at that. Find or make a crampon for the altai and you'll be set. ...

Re: Re: Polartec Micro Fleece $20 @ Costco

Re: Polartec Micro Fleece $20 @ Costco
AZ has them too, so I'm guessing they're nation wide. Picked up a medium as well and I'll weigh it and check sizing when I get home.

Re: Re: most miserable cold night!
I'd blame the pad. Switching my pad system made the biggest difference in my nighttime warmth. You may not "feel" it but your body will expend a lot of energy trying to warm up the ea...

Re: Zion National Park Mid January Gear Help
Due to the time contraints, the specialty (and cost) of winter gear, I would recommend renting. The trip will be worth it. If you do go for buying, spend money on your bag. A good bag is worth i...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Use the rope
True, but when canyoneering you're usually below the anchors and weighting them directly, so risk of shock loading the sling is fairly low. A sling of any type is still better than clipping ...

Re: Re: The secrets botanists keep
The presence of Jaguars in SE Arizona is generally regarded as a secret. Sure the occasional roaming male gets leaked to the public, but allegedly we have a small but healthy breeding population in...
