Re: Getting in shape for a thrukike

Re: Marmot Hydrogen 30 - Sizing
I'm 5'7" and 142 lbs and the regular Hydrogen fits me fine with room to spare. The shoulder girth is generous enough for something like a Thermawrap and I actually find it a good compr...

ProShow Gold
I use ProShow Gold. It's the only one I know so I can't compare with others but I think it does exactly what you're asking for and it's very easy to use. http://www.photodex.com/...

Re: Gear List

Re: Rain pants vs. rain skirt

Re: Re: mirror?
I too use a compass with a sighting mirror. It's a very simple and lightweight compass, a Recta DS40, just 1.5 oz. I don't usually use the mirror for taking bearings but even if I never did...
