Mountain Laurel Designs 850 ml Cup

Some people fish, fly kites, chat with their hiking mates, or mull over their route and equipment when they aren’t hiking. Some hike from dawn to dusk and have no time for such weighty pass times. If...

I ordered the medium because that is what I wear in a Patagonia Micro-Puff, but the neck was too big for me, too. I have replaced it with a small, and the fit is perfect. I prefer the zipper over t...
