About Me I grew up in VA exploring and camping the woods around my house. As a teen in the 80's I learned how to backpack by reading books. Back then my pack weight was a respectable 27 lbs and I hit the woods every chance I got. Once adult life took over it was rare to take an overnighter. I faced several challenges during my middle age life and turned to the outdoors to restore me. As my knowledge and skills advanced, my base weight dropped to below 5 lbs. With this came a freedom that I had never experienced before.

Re: M50 Pullover Jacket

M50 Pullover Jacket
I just finished my M50 900fp down pullover jacket. It was based off a modified Thru-Hiker Kinsman pattern. I had to make some adjustments to account for down instead of synthetic insultion, but tha...

re: WTB: Kinsman Pullover Pattern
I can't say enough about the Kinsman kit. I'd encourage anyone who can sew to make one. The kit not only includes the shell material, insulation, and pattern, but it also includes the zippe...
