My Locale Oregon and Washington
About Me I started hiking about 45 years ago. My first backpack was 40 years ago. I currently try to do one backpack trip of 5 nights every month (which can be tricky in the winter) 20 to 50 miles. Mostly I stay around Mount Hood, Columbia Gorge, Mount Adams, Goat Rocks, and the Olympic Peninsula. In recent years I have shifted to lightweight - my pack weight without food and water is about 15 lb (7 kg). I make a lot of my own gear - silnylon tarp-tent, bivy, synthetic bag, simple bag style pack. My sleeping pad is a Therm-a-Rest air mattress.

wouldn't the back of your fingers get sun exposure? I guess it doesn't matter if your fingers become wrinkled and shriveled?

Re: Re: Re: Sealing a Tent
the garden hose or sprinkler is good, but it's not quite the same as rain. Size of drops and what their speed is hitting the tent.

Re: Sealing a Tent
does it leak? Set it out in rain and see if it stays dry inside

Re: Sun protective gloves
wear long sleeves that are long enough to protect hands. Velcro or some other closure to fasten around wrist when you want to use hands.
