WAS it tongue-in-cheek??? :o) And, Jay, if you are looking for a metric to define how hard it is for you to carry a pack of a given weight compared to an "average" 5'10" hike...

Munter hitch
Well... a Munter weighs zero additional ounces... :o) Which really isn't trivial for a ULer who just wants a light rope for the occasional scramble. I've used figure-8s a lot for rappe...

I just got back from a Wind River Range traverse in which I tried a couple of Mary Jane's Farm meals for the first time- I had never heard of them- and I'm impressed. Fist, my caveat: I hav...

I have a slightly different kit- the 0.1 micron 4-way filter. Of the filters available I give it a 5. It's not perfect, but IMHO it is the best that is available, hands down. The 4-way kit come...
