Re: Rev. 3 - A Visual Paradigm for Windshirts - Multiple Axis of Understanding

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: SMD Fusion info has been released
I'm sorry you took offense Ron. I have no antipathy towards thruhikers, but 120 days of mild use is 120 days of mild use, whether it takes place over 1 year or 5.

Re: Re: Hats
Thanks Ken. I apologize for the extra bother of email, but PMs are just not sustainable. Their ease seemed to facilitate rather unresearched questions on all subjects, and the volume became sta...

Patagonia Capilene 1 T-Shirt
Cap 1 seems to have changed very little since it was called silkweight capilene back in the day. It dries very quickly, wicks pretty well (though not as well as cap 2), and most importantly feels lig...

Therm-A-Rest Ridgerest
I use a cut-down 48" Ridgerest on every trip. Bombproof, comfy, light, cheap. In winter, I add a full length under it. I actually sleep better on this than most inflatables, but realize I&...
