Permerthrin works well. You're lucky they stopped at your ankles, they usually keep migrating. Man, I hate chiggers.

I gave up on waiting on this review, and bought one about 3 months ago. Not being one of the cognoscenti, or an REI anti, I guess I was just enough of a dumb a$$ not to know any better. Mine fits g...

Golite Hex Upgrades
Recently got a hex, and I read all the threads online. I was planning on adding noseeum mesh around the bottom, and wondered if the folks who had done that were still happy with the results. I was ...

Could be worse. In the forest around my house in Northern New Mexico, all they do is say land owners complained, and put up locked gates on all the roads. That way they don't even have to go in...

I never had any luck thru email with a pack I had, but when I called them, they jumped on it. Let me use the defective pack until the new one came in, and sent me a return label.

I'm not sure about the rain, but I would expect they are up. We're 9" above average here in Midland, which is a couple of hours away.

I just bought an REI UL Cruise 60 that I am very impressed with so far. I'd sure take a look at the women's UL 45. You can always send it back, and it's not too hard to catch them at 20...

How many of us have tried to get a youngster out overnight? Not very many, I bet. And if they have, it was with Boy Scouts. Face it, most backpackers are either apathetic about passing it on, or se...

Marmot Atom Mens Regular 40 Degree
Nice bag. 1/2 zipper is kind of a pain, and makes it hard to use as a quilt. Seems true to rating.

ULA Catalyst
Replaced my Exos 58 with this, much more comfortable, with more weight. Got a deal on a 2008 model, and added the dual stays. A lot bigger pack than I'll use most of the time. Gained some weight o...

ULA Circuit
Switched to this for more durability, and the ability to carry more water in the desert. Works like a champ, and you couldn't ask for better customer service.

Osprey Exos 58
I have to ding it a little for the hip belt. I think the hip belts on the large runs small, because it didn't wrap around me enough to be effective. And that may not be fair to ding it, because al...

Golite Ultra 20
Mine kept me warm in the upper 20s, so I'm happy. I'm not completely sure it would reach 20, and keep you warm for 8 hours. But it's a great product for a great price.
