some thoughts
Hi David, Just a suggestion; you will likely get more responses to a gear question in the “G Spot” forum. The Tamarak is essentially a climber’s half-bag, and given your height will like...

Courtney- very informative. It helps explain why I have a pair of will mittens (non-Merino) and old wool work shirts that are impossible to wear out. Also, the fact that many people here have had b...
