Re: Re: AA lithiums vs. CR-V3 lithium
My physics lessons seem long fogotten but can you actually add the capacity of the two AAs?. It seems you need two to get the right voltage because they're 1.5V each. Do you then get a 3Vx6000 mAh ...

Re: Re: AA lithiums vs. CR-V3 lithium
The Energizer lithium AAs (sold here) are 29 gr for the pair. It turned out around 30 gr in my scale but it has a 5 gr step. I also have a rechargeable CR-V3, don't remember the brand but I don't ...

Re: dwr nylon bivies

Re: DWR nylon in bivies
A non-waterproof bivy makes the most sense when you use a minimal shelter like a small tarp where you are not fully protected from the elements, wind and spray, as PJ said. It can be of help also t...

Re: Pack Cover or Pack Liner?
I think it depends on the pack. If the pack is made of a hydrophobic fabric and with few seams, a liner is probably better. If the pack fabric can hold water (even if it's coated and hence waterpro...

Re: Lightweight and ultralight backpacking in Europe
I’m aware there’s real wilderness up north. I was referring mainly central-south-western Europe, I’m not that sure about the mountains in eastern Europe as wilderness areas, they’re defini...

Re: Do tarps have limits?
I can relate to what you feel about that certain difficulty to apply others' experiences when those are from a different environment. It's a pity UL is not so much talked about in Europe but it's c...
