My Locale John S. hasn't told us about their geographical region yet.
About Me Originally from Louisiana, I enjoyed camping in my Boy Scouting days and eventually became an Eagle Scout. Many years later (2002), I discovered backpacking after going on an REI multisport trip to Alaska. My first backpack was to Grand Canyon, and I was hooked!

Re: Re: SD Isotope V. Golite Virga
Golite dumped the current version of the jacket from their website, so that might speak volumes. Someone mentioned a new virga coming out next year though (?new fabric).

Re: A green suggestion
The M.E. green is not too far off the gray, which I like alot. Some yellows are nice. The MSR orange isn't too bad if you wanna be seen. Bright green or blue I don't go for.

Re: Pour with 1, 2, or 4 oz. Fuel Bottle with Squirt Caps
Ben, are the REI squirters leakproof? I would trust them for a lotion, but have my doubts about a liquid. Thoughts?
