255s for me
I love mine, and have just ordered a replacement pair. I have about 4-500miles on them, including a 50k and a 100k. The 100 included a fair bit of granite stones and rocks underfoot. My only bli...

Why avoid the herd?
For me, I think it's more about trying to avoid having my experience defined by others. I admit that I find it hard to put my own spin on a trip, a view, a place or an experience when there ar...

Re: Oy vey
Craig, I'm all over that! I don't care what my mates carry on a trip. I have no idea if they pack heavier or lighter than me. But I make very certain I call the beer situation in the ...

Looks great but.....
Just be aware that Exped rate this as a 45 degree quilt, not a 23. That sounds about right for 14oz of fill on a 6' x7' quilt. Theoretical loft is about 1.9" http://www.exped.co...

Foil packs
Hi Todd, I generally put my unopened foil pack (or can of tuna) in the cold water and bring it to the boil. This heats it up nicely. You can keep it warm in your pocket until ready to add to th...
