Philmont Backpacks
Gossamer Gear's web site has a picture of a troop that all used Mariposa Plus backpacks, and I think they're a lot smaller than that recommendation.

more breathable hiking shirts?
I've never unnderstood why you'd want something to wick sweat away when you're hot. Kind of kills the natural cooling cycle, doesn't it? And despite our love of pricy logos, I ha...

Where should I invest 250$
To paraphrase from a different forum and different hobby, "a quality sleeping bag is the poor man's yacht". A nice WM bag will give you 20 years of use, when properly cared for. And t...

Good compression shorts
Bonktown has been having compression half-tights on about 10 times a day for the last several days. don't remember the brand, but it doesn't take much to beat the price and quality of UA.

Becoming the iceman
I have to agree with David on getting used to cold; lilving in a warm part of the country has ruined me. I'll have to try wearing less before I go to the mountains next time. Not so sure I agre...

Marmot Atom Mens Regular 40 Degree
Nice bag. 1/2 zipper is kind of a pain, and makes it hard to use as a quilt. Seems true to rating.

ULA Catalyst
Replaced my Exos 58 with this, much more comfortable, with more weight. Got a deal on a 2008 model, and added the dual stays. A lot bigger pack than I'll use most of the time. Gained some weight o...

ULA Circuit
Switched to this for more durability, and the ability to carry more water in the desert. Works like a champ, and you couldn't ask for better customer service.

Osprey Exos 58
I have to ding it a little for the hip belt. I think the hip belts on the large runs small, because it didn't wrap around me enough to be effective. And that may not be fair to ding it, because al...

Golite Ultra 20
Mine kept me warm in the upper 20s, so I'm happy. I'm not completely sure it would reach 20, and keep you warm for 8 hours. But it's a great product for a great price.
