Re: Child's pack
That's exactly what I did Michael. The 5 yards to SUL pattern combined with my own pocket ideas. The hip belt wings were modeled after those on my GoLite Jam2. Width was good for my son. ...

Re: First flight
Thanks Stuart. Though I don't know his exact hours, what you went through sounds very similar to my friend's training in his early days. I'm looking at classes but he also wants to sp...

Re: Re: Electrolyte needs and real food
I'll echo everything Nick said. Potato chips are my snack choice for the same reason. I've done a Grand Canyon R2R2R in a day, many mountain 50Ks, many road marathons, Kearsarge Pass to W...

Any paragliders here?

Good timing. I believe they're on sale at REI and I could return them if the fit is poor. Thanks.

Re: Re: Recommend a GTX lightweight boot?
Thanks Clayton. I'd have already bought the Inov8s were it not for worries about the fit. It's too bad that so much of what they offer is so narrow because they really seem to build the...

Montbell Thermawrap jacket
A great jacket- my XL weighs in at just over 10 oz. with its stuff sack. Very simple, functional design- perfect for 3 seasons in the Sierras when combined with a base layer and/or shell system.
