My Locale Western Washington
About Me I started backpacking again in 2008, after a long hiatus---I haven't been since I was a kid. Loving learning about a different way to hike---backpacking was no fun when I was a teen-ager, stuff was too heavy! Completed my dream of hiking the Wonderland Trail in 2010, now onto more hikes in the Cascades and Olympics.

What are folks using the super glue for? Is it part of patching your air mattress? I'm having trouble visualizing where it would be necessary. Could be part of the first aid kit, I guess, for...

packaging zip ties
I was musing on the contents of my repair kit, and I think I've done pretty well at controlling my paranoid "what-if?" brain that makes me want to throw everything in. The one part o...

well, not quite the only
Ibex has one, they call it the W2 Sport Zip. Then, there's cycling and running jerseys too, but those tend to be rather slim fitting.

Thanks for the tip! They offer women's in larger sizes, something I've been looking for. Now, if I can convince them to produce a zip-T s/s for women....

Which direction?
Thanks, AndE, that's more specific an answer than I had hoped for--performance evaluation of the actual fabric I'm looking at is more than I had hoped for! Now, for a stupid question. M...

Love them
Found that they really reduced the blister problem for me. They come in both synthetic and merino, I prefer the wool ones for the stink control factor. In winter, I layer them with a thin Smartwo...

Montbell Outpace Parka
The Outpace Parka is a decent jacket, but it has some design details that could be better. It sheds rain really well. It is pretty light and packable. Its breathability seems to be fairly good, alth...
