Re: Plastic Liner vs. Stuff Sacks
1. Liner goes in pack (I love trash compactor bags!) 2. Sleeping bag goes to the bottom (in stuff sack for some compression) 3. Clothes go on top (I don't usually carry much spare clothing...

Re: Re: Re: PLB's, SPOTS vs. Cutting the Cord
I fully understand and agree with the argument about cutting off the cell phone and emails so you're work can't get you. As far as my work is concerned, I don't have a cell phone or pe...

Re: justice
For the sake of civil discourse and debate, I've already conceded global warming to the fraud camp. So, as I said, there are still (in my humble estimation) 999,999 solid reasons to pursue e...

Re: fraud
Ok, let me rephrase that. Thanks to your post, I now believe global warming has been undeniably proven to be a fraud. If that was your sole argument, breathe easy my friend, now you no longer...

Montbell Thermawrap jacket
A great jacket- my XL weighs in at just over 10 oz. with its stuff sack. Very simple, functional design- perfect for 3 seasons in the Sierras when combined with a base layer and/or shell system.
