Re: Wind v Snow resistance w/r/t Mids
A tall, steep wall mid is not so bad in wind. I don't know about the 4 sided ones but users usually say they're good. I use the Shangri-La 3, which is 6 sided and that surely helps with the...

Re: WP/B performance failure
Chris, what you mention may help but it's not a solution, I don't think there's such thing other than what Andrew says about accepting getting somewhat wet. I take is as fact: backpacki...

Re: Critical Skills for PCT?
Like for any long hike: mental strength, determination to make it. In 4-5 months you'll go through difficult times, sometimes (but so at home!) and it may seem like the end of the world (say, t...

Golite Hex 3
