Wow!
Was really nice to meet everyone Friday evening and Saturday morning. I've almost got to meet up w/ Dave C a couple of times, but never quite worked out. Also got to meet w/ Sam H Saturday mo...

Re: choices
^ very much agreed :) I think for the Sierras (similar to our Rocky Mtn weather) it should be just fine, it's going to spend the overwhelming time in your pack if you're concerned wi...

Dirty Girl Gaiters
I'd probably go 4.5 just because of the needed velcro, but I like these enough I wanted to round up. They are breathable, they are light and they do a great job of keeping stuff out of your sho...
