Re: Easy off/on layer ing fo rthe lower half?
I've always found long johns and shorts to be a good starting point, then windpants over if it cools off. You'll want side zips (at least partial) to get over those 15EEE's. Depending o...

Re: Remote canister gas stove - Fire Maple FMS-117T or Kovea Spider, or?
I'd get the spider unless you want to go for one of Roger Caffin's creations. I think for family use the remote is nice because: -More stable with larger pots/pans -easier to safely use ...

Re: Which takes less energy for cross country: skis or snowshoes?
Skis will be easier. How long is this journey? and how much will you be carrying? Probably you'd be best off with a NNN-BC boot (or Salomon XA) and pretty light skis, something around 65-70mm w...
