Re: Mitten Shells? fabric?
I made a pair out of silnylon. They can go on their own or over other insulating gloves/mittens. They obviously don't breathe but when it's cold enough to need them it's cold enough for...

Re: Re: windshirt and rainjacket, redundant?
> I carry both, and use the windshirt as my second shirt I do the same. It's actually not only about windshirt vs. rain jacket but about a whole integrated system. I find I build a better...

Re: windshirt and rainjacket, redundant?
there's certainly some functional overlap but I wouldn't say they're redundant. Waterproof garments are not as breathable as windproof ones, there's a big difference here. Windproof...

Re: Re: Electronics and cooking
Tony, I followed that thread in the Make Your Own Gear forum, just woudn't remember who was behind. Your design looked fantastic and I'd surely buy it if it was available. It's clear...

PET vs Platy and drinking tubes
when I started weighing my stuff, I was amazed at how heavy the Platypus tube + cap + valve combo was, much heavier than the bottles, I don't have the figure with me now but it makes sense what...

Re: Pitching mids

Re: Pitching mids
not really that much. Anyway, if there's a floor with a fixed layout attached to the fly, as in a traditional tent, you can also get the right shape from there. In the absence of such floor, it...

Pitching mids

I was torn between Ghost and Alpinist before ordering and eventually ordered something in between, quite like the former X from BMW. It has the loft of the Ghost with the dimensions of the Alpinist an...
