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.

Re: Re: A bit of Giardia with a Chlorine Dioxide chaser
it takes a while for chlorine to kill bugs in the time it takes to kill them, your stomach will probably neutralize it

Re: Re: Re: feedback
nobul1 or 2 is good. 0.7 oz/yd2. Maybe not down proof but you don't care about that. Maybe be more breathable. http://www.titaniumgoat.com/Fabric.html

Re: Parka for freezing temps
6.7 * 800 = 5360 5.3 * 900 = 4770 5360 / 4770 = 1.12 the 800 fill will be 12% warmer ignoring other factors, but that gives an idea you probably won't notice 12% warmer, so they'...
