"Starting to doubt using my alcohol stove for cannister"

"Starting to doubt using my alcohol stove for cannister"
With a good windscreen--essential!--I easily get 14 boils out of a 4 oz. canister. This starts as a pretty light set-up and just gets lighter every day. So one 4 oz canister for a week of backpacki...

"Why are all the eVent Rain Jackets so short"
I also have a Rab Demand and it definitely covers me bum. At 5'9'' 145 lbs the medium fits perfectly; a tad tight for layering a puffy--workable though. I think that this is a great pie...

The "I don't get it" thread"
Miguel: yep,you're right, I haven't tried very thin merino socks in the summer. But I like a bit of padding. I don't "get" why I would give that up for the "benefit"...

"JMT list...let's talk VOLUME"
