Re: Sawyer Squeeze "grafity filter" bag recommendations
I am pondering the same question. I have a 4L Dromlite, which weighs 3.6 oz (mine is old style, does not have the "handle" at the neck). I'm leaning toward using that, mainly because ...

Re: Does This Pack Fit?
I would say you are at the top end of the range for that pack to fit, and with only 13 lbs in it it might sag if loaded more. OTOH, the next size up (if I read the GG website right) is 4" tall...

Re: to trekking pole or not to trekking pole...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Stove Stakes
Yep, probably a tad heavier if attached. But you won't lose them, and they would be where you need them when you need them. Could also be laser or waterjet cut out of sheet stock.

Re: Re: Colour?
My 2 cents on the colour: Very much agree that the winter tent should be orange/red/yellow for visibility. I've been in storms where even my orange tent was barely visible from 30 feet away - a...

Re: Western Sierra Hike Suggestions for Noobs
