My Locale Kanto Plain, Japan
About Me The top of the mountain is more an afterthought than a destination for me. Its the trees and creatures, the weather and people along the way that make the walking good. It's why it's always so hard to come back down. And why, with the odor of days imprinted in synthetics, my coming back down is hard for others, too!

Re: Fjallraven Abisko Lightweight 1

Re: Exped Air Pillow seems better IMHO
I used the Klymit Cush almost everyday for the entire month of August, walking in the Pyrenees, and in the youth hostels and trains. I'd say it has its problems, especially that it never sit fl...
