My Locale West Virginia
About Me I was a guide for many years in Yellowstone, Denali, and Black Canyon of the Gunnison. Moved to Eugene, Oregon, for my Master's and got a good taste of the PNW. Now I'm in West Virginia making maps for all of our wonderful national parks with the NPS Publications program at Harpers Ferry Center.

Another vote for Conduit consideration
Paul, I have a ULA Conduit. Although your friend's note mentions choosing between the Catalyst and the Circuit, I think he should also consider the Conduit, depending on his gear selection. Altho...

Getting Width
Jason, what's the width of your shroud and how did you get it that wide? The nanoseeum from Thru-Hiker comes in a 55inch width. Did you just sew two pieces together length-wise, or did you have a...

GG Bug Canopy = Good Idea
Douglas, I think that will work really well. I would have gone with the GG except that I'm planning on carrying a 25F not-so-summer quilt/bag hybrid and want the option to be able to use it as a...

To DIY or not to DIY?
Thanks for the responses everyone. Comments about the net laying against the skin coupled with durability issues (I'm of a bit of a tosser and turner) have got me thinking that a DIY project mig...

MiniBullDesigns Bug Bag
Some searches for Tinny's bug bag have yielded mostly "Yes, it exists and is a solution" posts. Can anyone give a more in-depth review? I'll be working and backpacking in Yellowstone all summer, ...

60L Worksack
Although I have no hands-on experience, the 60L Worksack from Cilogear has gotten very positive reviews in a few places (here, for example). It is expandable to around 90 L (approx. 5500 cubes) a...

Sean, That's great to hear. I ordered my pack a little over a month ago, so here's hoping it'll be here in the next two weeks. Brian really does seem like a great guy, and I'm happy to be suppor...

Roger: Order Date?
Roger, When did you order your Conduit? I'm anxiously awaiting mine, but have heard nothing from Brian for over a month now. Also, in your weight tests, were you using a closed-cell foam pad (...

Montbell Peak Shell
I was a guide in Denali NP during the summer of 2008. It rained almost every day for all of July and the first week of August this year, and I was out in it all day, every day. My MontBell Peak She...

Marmot Ion
Man, what a disappointment. I, too, got stuck with the Campmor version of the Ion. I'm quite thin and short-waisted, so the Ion's athletic cut and short length were great for me. The fit of...

I've owned the H20 Amigo for about one year, with most of my use concentrated in Yellowstone and the Tetons during the summer of 2006. When I'm by myself, I tend to stick to AquaMira becaus...
