Re: Board Shorts For Hiking??
I actually use board shorts all the time for hiking. Walmart sells some men's board shorts that are perfect. The only thing is the built in underwear that you find in most of them is VERY unc...

Re: Pocket Rocket or SnowPeak GigaPower?
I have a PR... Wish I bought a snowpeak instead. I think MSR hit a homerun with the Whisperlite series, but that's about it. I love my whisperlite international, hate my PR. Another downsi...

GSI Dualist
