Many Hikers in Need
I actually thought of you, Kendall, when we all piled on the bandwagon to help Don. There are a lot of people who would benefit from each other's good will, but some go more unnoticed and unhe...

NeoAir Pad -- Too Cool??
Ben - the same thing happened to me last week. I used a short Neoair with a 1/8" ccf pad under it, and another one over it as a sandwich. Temps got down to high 20's. I was just cold en...

Trashy Souper Rice
Oh, gag, and pffft! I've heard pregnant people start doing really weird things right before they deliver. This proves it. Think about it, Sarah. By eating that soup you're feeding fun...

Rocky Goretex socks
Lynn - The socks themselves are pretty waterproof, but water would get in over the tops if you were submerged deeper than the height of stretchy band on the tops of the socks.

Cranberry Macadamia Cereal Bars
Where's the chocolate? !! Since I don't buy or eat store-bought cereal, I need some actual names for ideas. Please don't say rice crispies. I already know I won't buy those. W...

Rocky Goretex socks
Clint - REI sells them. I'd be very very very careful ordering from Botach. In fact, I wouldn't. Based on personal experience, if they're out, they'll still take your money and t...

WTB: fixing your feet - 4th edition
Ted- have you read the book? I checked it out from the library. Both Mr. B and I thought it was a sorry mix of content-free information and a discussion of the obvious.

Can I wash my pack?
I wash mine in the bathtub to avoid any problems with the agitator in the washing machine catching the straps. Then I hang it on the showerhead to drip dry.

America, Americans
Yeah, I know. But it still bugs me! I think it's rather a pompous habit we've gotten ourselves into.

Botach Tactical Customer Service
I had a similar experience to David's. They sent the inferior space blankets, rather than the correct order, took forever to send a return UPS shipping label, and only yesterday admitted to recei...

Boomer's Guide to Lightweight Backpacking by Carol Corbridge
I was very disappointed in this book. Luckily, I didn't buy it but had checked it out from the library. For starters, the book is in major need of copy editing. There are lots of awkward sent...

Backpacking Light Merino UL Pants
These do everything BPL promised - provide comfortable warmth without being bulky. I've worn them under non-winter hiking pants all winter, and they've extended the comfort range down to 7 de...

Golite Paradox pants
I'm not sure whether to review these in raingear or softshell clothing, because they're both. They are all-day pants, rather than rain pants to pull on over hiking pants and are made of a fab...
