"Source for UL Precription Sunglasses or Lenses"

"SUL gear list, how does it look?"
I have a Western Mountaineering down vest that's great. I think that it weighs 4-5 ounces. Has served me well for many years. I think that it's 900 fill but I could be wrong; certainly 800.

"winter emergency gear"
If I'm in a winter emergency it's either because I'm lost or hurt. If I'm lost I can dig a trench etc. but if I'm hurt, my options will be limited in terms of building shelter. ...

"Newtown -- Who Here Changed His (or Her) Mind?"
