My first Kindle just died... it was 1-1/2 years old and had been in the Grand Canyon 3 times, Mexico twice, plus half-dozen short backpacking trips. I'd made a simple fleece envelope for it bu...

Re: backpack & airport bagage handlers
I fly with my gear at least 2-3 times a year and check it all inside a good solid rolling duffel. Mine is soft-sided but has a solid bottom. Most airlines have a maximum size limit of about 62"...

Re: Create Silnylon Rainfly?
OK, I'll take a stab. I'd go for a "hybrid" ridgeline tarp/rainfly. Shape the back (closed) end like the tent but leave the door-end extended like a tarp. Use a hiking pole to...

Re: MYOG rain gear fabric
I recently made an anorak with a 2.5-layer WPB fabric from Quest Outfitters. I think I paid about $10-11 a yard for 2nds. (I only need about 1.5 yds for an anorak 2/hood.) Simple design without p...
