Re: Chaps made from Drop-Stopper Pants!
Isn't the primary advantage of chaps, as compared to pants, the increased ventilation? I can understand why that would be important for a non-breathable fabric, which is what most rain chaps are m...

Re: I can "taste" Aqua Mira?
I used AM for the first time last week, and I noticed a subtle lemon-like flavor. It wasn't a good taste, but I had no trouble drinking the water. I'm not aware of any way to remove the taste, al...

Re: Making a rain kilt/skirt?
I've "made" a rain kilt out of a garbage bag with integrated drawstring. No sewing required, just a pair of scissors. I got the basic idea from The Complete Walker. It works surprisingly well, th...

Kelty Crestone 1 at SAC; $50

Kelty Crestone 1 at SAC; $50
The Kelty Crestone 1 solo tent is $50 at steepandcheap.com today. I don't know if this tent's any good, but $50 for a reasonably sized solo tent sounds pretty good. It looks a lot like the MSR Zo...

Spotlite review
