My Locale Arkansan in Seattle
About Me I have a tendency to buy the display item of pieces of gear that I want because, typically, they seem to be the only "smalls" that outfitters keep in stock.

My trail name, 'demo' comes from a display Thermarest pillow I bought that has the word DEMO marked in very large letters in permanent marker.

Re: Dimension Polyant
all the packs in the now defunct "Mountainlight" series from Mountainsmith were made from a combination of VX-21 and VX-42. I too can attest to their bulletproof-ness.

ok, thanks for the links, but none of them contain any places that either a) you can buy from, or b) stock the gaiters. so, anyone know of a place I can actually buy these gaiters from?

Re: Is anyone wearing or worn Mountain Hardware Mesa Convertible Pants
I checked into it as well. The Mesa pants are made of the same material as the Canyon shorts, which I also own. There is a definite difference in material, the Canyon cloth is meant for warm weat...

Re: Ohm No! - ULA Equipment
that answers that. I'll just continue to use my Conduit until the Ohm becomes available. I can't say I'm disappointed at all, but it's too bad for those that were waiting on it.

I would gladly pay the extra to get the print content online. The one thing that has kept me from getting the print magazine is the desire not to attribute to further tree-killin'. Besides,...

My only complaints tend to line up the same as those from others. It seems, although I can't prove a shred of this, that they are in cahoots with Nalgene as bottles from said manufacturer are the...

Nice little piece of headgear here. Impressive how much warmth it adds when on your head. My typical setup is wearing a Tilly hat during an entire trip and adding the balaclava when I need some wa...

I completely concur with everything the previous reviewer stated. Just as fair warning, like stated above, the little ribs in the fabric do make it clingy. However, this does give it the ideal effec...
