grommets as drain holes
Scott, Grommets are indeed easy to put in your pack, and if big enough and in the right place are very effective as drain holes. But I don't think you'll need them just for the Narrows. ...

I have Voile Mountaineers (burly 3 pins) on my Guides. I like the simplicity. Having never used a free pivot cable binding, I don't know how the Switchbacks would kick and glide. That'...

burgundy, and hiking trails
My wife has some burgundy T3s. I have boot envy as a result. As for skis, again, a tough one. By hiking trails do you mean mostly flat and rolling stuff, or more hilly terrain? I ask because ...

Patagonia Capilene 1 T-Shirt
Cap 1 seems to have changed very little since it was called silkweight capilene back in the day. It dries very quickly, wicks pretty well (though not as well as cap 2), and most importantly feels lig...

Therm-A-Rest Ridgerest
I use a cut-down 48" Ridgerest on every trip. Bombproof, comfy, light, cheap. In winter, I add a full length under it. I actually sleep better on this than most inflatables, but realize I&...

Gossamer Gear ThinLight insulation pad 1/8" approx. 2 oz.
It's hard to get more warmth for the weight (or price). I like having a few pieces to add in as supplementary feet and/or torso pieces. It is quite fragile. Do not leave this on the outside o...
