Mica vs Super Mica vs Nano
The nano is gore-tex and should breath a little better than the membrain micas. I like the nano because it is light and simple. If I know I'm going to use a shell all day, I take my aegis which...

Ken's Hood
That is just the thing I need for using on my boat this time of year. It's not all that cold, but when you get going, the wind just cuts through any hat that I've tried. (or blows it off) T...

I'll still use my Amazon Visa

easier ways
Just go to your local college, take a chemistry class, get in good with the professors and they can hook you up with research ethanol for about $10 to $15 a gallon. Don't ask me how I know this...
