Re: Multi-Day Running Trips
I'm a trail runner too, though I don't get much chance to participate in it and thus do much shorter distances than you're probably thinking of. I've learned that on a running trip,...

Bivy plus for use without a tarp?
I'm curious about what to use for bike touring. I currently use a BMW bivy and a small silnylon tarp, but find the combination fiddly and annoying. I'm always rolling the bivy over and wigg...

RE: "Is it...SIL-nylon?!?!"
Most nylon in fabric stores is just calendared (heat pressed) on one side so it looks shiny. I have seen some that has some plasticky coating on it but it wasn't silnylon. Silnylon feels really...

Re: What is your sock strategy?
I'm a big fan of the injinji socks as well. If two pairs work well for you, you could try to save weight by exchanging the outer pair for anklets if you haven't already, but I would try goi...

Re: Land Mines

REI Minimalist Bivy Sack
You forgot the most important part- it's CHEAP! I'm amazed that they sell something far more than a nylon bag with a drawcord for MSRP $89. I picked mine up at a sale for $65, making it hard to compla...
