"SILK BANDANA FOR FACIAL SUN PROTECTION?"
breathing: yep, can be a problem with bandana style facial coverage. Again, the Sun Precautions drape hat fits so loosely that breathing isn't a problem; alternatively, you can 'unzip' ...

"What Dan McHale has to say about UL backpacks"

"SILK BANDANA FOR FACIAL SUN PROTECTION?"
Sun Precautions has an excellent neck/face drape hat made from (by?) Solumbra fabric: very high spf. The drape has a series of velcro fasteners going up its length, so you can adjust it in a variet...

JMT in Mid-July- Looking for Itinerary Critiques"

"Safety of sleeping on the ground with no critter protection.

Vasque Breeze GTX
These boots really are a breeze on your feet. Unlike another reviewer, I found these boots to have terrific ankle support. However, the deal-killer for me is the relatively narrow toe box. Full disclo...
