Re: BOOTAY
Not UL, but the Feathered Friends booties are well made, warm, and have a removable outer. The bottom of the outer is textured, and there's some kind of stiffener in the sole (feels like foam, ...

Re: DeLorme inReach SE: Tracks Well on a Pack Strap?
I always use it hanging from a side pack strap (see photo below). Never had an issue with it at all. Even used it inside my shelter one night, under tree cover, to text my brother. Worked fine t...

Re: L-Shaped Inner for DuoMid for 1 + Dog
It seems that a regular-shaped inner (rectangular) would not only be easier to set up, but offer more options. Want an L-shape? Just bring one corner of the inner in to create that shape, and make ...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: EE Revelation Elite vs Katabatic Palisade
"+1 I don't own an EE quilt, though if I were to buy another quilt, it would be an EE or ZPacks. It would certainly not be a Katabatic, due to the shape. Not to disparage Katabatic's q...
