a very basic and lightweight gps receiver with no mapping or any fancy features, just a good antenna, a small display and the ability to display your present coords. For a little more weight, it mi...

Re: Tarp pitching on cycling trips
I do something very similar to what Franco showed for a Contrail with a beaked rectangular tarp. The bike stays upright due to the tension in the guyline, no need even to use the stand. It's ju...

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: Vapor Trail Hip Belt
I've added a ULA hip belt to a GG Virga. It works very well. The ULA hip belt is not thick but it's wide and really transfers weight to the hips. I've carried up to 43 lbs. in relative ...

pad for frame & organization
> It seems the issue is that putting anything in the pocket pushes the pack far away indeed and this is a bad thing. I don't like pad pockets unless the pad in them is thin. I do like the...
