My Locale Oregon and Washington
About Me I started hiking about 45 years ago. My first backpack was 40 years ago. I currently try to do one backpack trip of 5 nights every month (which can be tricky in the winter) 20 to 50 miles. Mostly I stay around Mount Hood, Columbia Gorge, Mount Adams, Goat Rocks, and the Olympic Peninsula. In recent years I have shifted to lightweight - my pack weight without food and water is about 15 lb (7 kg). I make a lot of my own gear - silnylon tarp-tent, bivy, synthetic bag, simple bag style pack. My sleeping pad is a Therm-a-Rest air mattress.

Re: Re: Size
Maybe walk around in the grass. On a steep slope. See if you can get them to work good there where you have access to things like pliers. Out in the wilderness it will be harder to fix them.

Re: Re
I was thinking that too, but then I thought maybe was that girls get screwed up sometime after puberty.

Re: Kahtoola Microspikes fit properly?
Was the rubber band around the outside tight? Sometimes you have to kind of pull on them a little. Adjust. Wiggle around. Get them to be tight. Walk on them a little and then re-adjust. T...
