Another vote for the Skaha. If we're talking about apples to apples we have to note that the Skaha is 800+ down and fully baffled at 3/4" (not sewn through). Also that it uses 5.0 oz of do...

Re: Non-Antibiotic Toe Infection First Aid
Thanks, guys for the input, but my question is about NON-ANTIBIOTIC treatments and not about prevention, but about when one already has the infection. Also it is not a poppable type wound, but an i...

Patagonia Men's Wool 2 Crew long sleeve
