My Locale Wet & Humid Southeast....
About Me I have been backpacking a little over 3 years now, but in that time I have logged a number of trail miles and went through a lot of gear trying to find my sweet spot. Now, thanks to cuben fiber, alcohol stoves, down and of course a better understanding, my TPW has severly dropped! My cold weather BPW is 9 - 10 lbs and my warm weather BPW is 5 - 6 lbs.
About 95% of the time I hike with family or friends and in the SouthEastern states. My favorites places to get away are anywhere along the AT as well as in the Great Smoky Mountains.

Re: 2012 Gorilla

BD Trail Ergo Cork poles
From REI, I would go with the BD Trail Ergo Cork poles. They are $109 but if you are using the 20% discount they will be under $100 easy. http://www.rei.com/product/830471/black-diamond-trail-er...

Re: Anyone experience the SMD Feather? ....and other pack advice.
I have no experience with the Feather, but I do with the Swift. The Swift is a nice pack for sure, but it is also a big pack. My advice (based purely on amount of space/volume) is that if you have ...

Suluk 46
Suluk 46 sells some a bit wider than 20 inches, but it's Plastazote instead of Evazote. Nevermind, it's 1/2 inch...

Ti-Eye Stakes
Lawson Kline used to sell the Ti-Eye stakes which are what you describe. They are almost entirely closed off (creating an eye) but there is enough room for a cord to slip through into the eye. They...

The thread pitch is different on my Squeeze filter and my 2L Platy soft bottle. I have read that the Evernew soft bottles (sold at AGG) have the same thread pitch, but I cannot verify this since I ...
