My Locale Lander, WY
About Me I live at the base of the Wind River Range in Wyoming with my wife and dog. I love to hike all over the Greater Yellowstone area. Our goal is to lighten our packs so that we can go as far as we can, as fast as we can. I currently work for an alternative high school and NOLS.

trekking poles
If you've got sturdy trekking poles, you should be fine on all of those. The only one I don't know about is Knapsack Col, I'm not sure how intense that one will be. I did a lot of gli...

I went up Washakie Pass weeks ago and it was fine (see the pictures above). Hailey Pass I guarantee is in the same shape, you should have no problems at all.

Thanks everybody. I was trying decide if a trash bag liner was worthwhile, but it sounds like it probably is. Now lets all get off our computers and go hike!

Dyneema waterproof?
I just got a new Golite Jam and I'm wondering if anyone has any feedback on how waterproof it is. Would it soak through in a heavy rain? Thanks, Gabe

Osprey Talon 44
All of the Osprey Talon packs are just plain comfortable. For all of the features the Talon 44 packs, I think its weight is actually pretty amazing. Sure you could get a lighter pack, but for the co...

The North Face Hydrogen Jacket (2008 Model)
This was the lightest wind breaker I could find with a full-zip and no hood. The men's comes in at 2.9 oz. and the women's at 2.4 oz. Blocks the wind wonderfully and is pretty breathable. T...

Western Mountaineering Ultralight Super
I love this bag. Lofts up wicked fast, never leaks feathers, packs small (for a 20 degree bag), spot on temp rating for me and my wife. The regular length definitely runs a bit short, I'm 5&#...
