Re: Wife needs a new bag. Any ladies out there have suggestions?

Re: Re: Oh, UL Fabric Gurus...
A friend of mine used some kind of silk or silk-like lining fabric, used for suit coats, as extendable shorts. He's close to albino in color and likes to hike in shorts so he added an inner lin...

Re: Help shopping for my petite wife
If you want her to be happy, make sure her sleeping bag is super warm. Altra makes fairly wide trail running shoes. I get the mens Lone Peaks to fit my flippers. I've had decent luck wear...
