My Locale Wet & Humid Southeast....
About Me My stomping grounds are the SE US, and 90% of the time, somewhere on the AT in GA, TN, or NC. Other times I enjoy going to the Smokies, or other smaller wilderness areas such as the Savage Gulf area.
Most of my trips are between 2 - 5 days long, with rare 7 day long trips. My total pack weights are generally under 20 lbs, unless trying new gear, or carrying extra for the kids. In the dead of summer, I enjoy SUL hikes, and have given thought to XUL (almost there...)

Re: Z-packs Zero Q's
I love all of my Zero's, and my Arc Blast. 2 of them are in the hybrid material, and the rest are regular cuben. IMO, none of them crinkle, but then again, I let the contents fill the pack out,...

Re: fiddly?
I use a ZPacks Solo Plus tarp & matching Hexanet, and I don't find anything to be fiddly about it... Set up is straight forward, and simple. I think it would be fiddly to those that are new...

Re: "Hotel" or "guest" style camp shoes
Haven't tried those... but my trail runners are a snap to put on, and are plenty comfy whether on the trail, or at camp. However, in colder months I will carry my Goosefeet Gear overbooties whi...

I have been using the NeoAirs as my back support/frame.... whatever you want to call it, for the last couple of years. I got tired of rolling the pad up each morning and then stuffing it in the lit...

Re: Suunto Core v Casio PAG240-1
I can't say which is better... they both seem to be great watches, but neither are perfect... I have the Core and have been using it as my everyday watch for almost 2 years. This includes hikin...

Re: Zpacks Arc Blast: Max load carrying?
Honestly, I think the only way to answer this question is to load yours up with your anticipated load and go for a hike with it... As you may notice already, the answers will vary from person to pe...

Re: What shelter am I looking for?
I agree with the comments on the Yama Mountain Gear... particularly the Cirriform SW tent. I long wanted a Contrail, but the weight was a bit more than what I wanted, and I too wanted a cuben canop...
