My Locale Colorado Rockies
About Me I'm 45 years old, 6'4" and 195 lbs. I've backpacked in the Colorado Rockies, the Wasatch and Uinta mountains, and in Zions National Park. I mountain bike in the Colorado Rockies. I've kayaked in Yellowstone and on Flaming Gorge, and rafted the Green, Colorado and Snake rivers. My trips are usually a week long or less. I love to hike wherever I can. I'm an Assistant Scout Master and I'm often out with the Scouts. My immediate goal is to thru-hike the Colorado trail. I've lived in Utah, Ohio, Illinois, Argentina, California, and Colorado.

Re: Re: Re: 2006 Backpacking Light Staff Picks
Tim, I just checked Smartwool's site and it appears they only have XXLs left. Thats where I bought mine. Someone said they have been discontinued but I haven't confirmed that yet. I sure hope not.

I won't argue with you on the cost. I almost always take advantage of their web specials and season clearance sales. I don't remember the old stuff being superior or more functional. Like you, I ju...

Hey Bill, I think you meant to say "Hey Reid" rather than "Hey Eric". My large Hooded Shak weighs 20.1 ounces. You are right about the weight. For 3 season use it is way too heavy. I bought if...

Reid, Thanks for your response. I appreciate your honesty. So, I like everything that doesn't sell :). That's probably a hint that I should stay away from sales and marketing jobs. This implies th...

Re: Re: Re: Anyone using Reflectix fabric?
As usual, great post Douglas! The closest I came to using Reflectix was when I glued a space blanket to some 1/8" foam I bought at the hardware store. It turn out great but I've never really used i...

Re: Re: Re: fire starter idea
Gene, I agree, if it leaves your person, it's not much good, and can be a fire hazard. In the face of a charging bear this flare would seem to be a good defensive weapon. Throwing it at the bear i...
