My Locale Oregon and Washington
About Me I started hiking about 45 years ago. My first backpack was 40 years ago. I currently try to do one backpack trip of 5 nights every month (which can be tricky in the winter) 20 to 50 miles. Mostly I stay around Mount Hood, Columbia Gorge, Mount Adams, Goat Rocks, and the Olympic Peninsula. In recent years I have shifted to lightweight - my pack weight without food and water is about 15 lb (7 kg). I make a lot of my own gear - silnylon tarp-tent, bivy, synthetic bag, simple bag style pack. My sleeping pad is a Therm-a-Rest air mattress.

Re: TOTD : The Mighty Bread Bag
I used bread bag directly on feet, under Merino socks. For one day. Feet turned into prunes. It seemed like they would be more susceptible to blisters or something so I quit after the first day.

Re: Re: Snow Peak Canister -- Made in Korea
When I use it at 25F it still works. If it was butane, it wouldn't. It would be better if it identified the contents. I've been using them for more than a year, including winters. I...

Re: Re: Washing a down quilt with patches
take a scrap of material, maybe nylon, and put on a patch of Tenacious tape. Run it through dryer. If it survives, dry your bag with tape without worrying about it.
