Re: Fat Fanny
My packs don't have lids anymore. I kind of miss them. My Osprey's lid had a zipper I could reach while I was walking. Nowadays I try to hang all these pouches and pockets from the hip belt...

Re: Re: Suggest a lightweight shoe for heavy loads and Wet+ technical terrain? Raptors, Salomon X Ultra ?
I have Altra Lone Peaks. The fit of my New Balance is much better. Believe it or not, they are much wider in the toe box. I have not found Lone Peaks to be wide enough in the toe box. I will probab...

Re: Re: How do you find out what lasts your new balance shoes use?

Re: Is it possible to paint or dye my nylon sun hat?
Is it one of those broad sun hats like Sunday Afternoon makes? I've noticed that some men can really pull that hat off well and others not so much. It's sort of an odd hat. I don't thin...

Re: Pat, Rovers and Salomon Ultras
I hiked the Winds from Big Sandy to Green Lake with some CDT hiker friends who were thru-hiking at the time. I brought my leather Keen hiking shoes thinking maybe this trail would be too rugged for...
