"Hydration bladders... out of fashion?"
A clerk at REI said that he wasn't sure if a Steripen would work with a clear soft bottle nalgene. That seems wrong to me and according to what I've read here, but then it occurred to me th...

"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...

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"
You're talking volume: keep the Weekender. A great choice. The Expedition is just ridiculously large. I hear what you're saying about not needing that much food for this last stretch. In...

"The "I don't get it" thread" : Merino socks in summer.
Hope this isn't a drift, sand or otherwise, but I don't get Merino wool socks in summer. Not only in the desert, but anywhere. Merino socks, even in a blend, make my feet sweat, which resu...

"Upright or recumbent exercise bike?"
Don: you have plantar fasciitis and need to keep off of your feet. I assume that you already know about all of the stretches etc. that you need to be doing. Swimming is great. Obviously low ...

"100 miles, PNW, - PCT or Wonderland?"

"windshield VS heat exchanger!?"
Jerry: that's pretty friggin' brilliant! 0.9 oz.; nice. And it fits inside your pot. I bought a used caldera cone (not ti-tri) just to try as a canister stove windscreen. Not recommended...

"pull-on sun shirt as baselayer: does it exist?"
Looking into it, the Arctryx Motus is up to 50 spf, lightweight and very cool. An excellent base layer. I've got nothing against permethrin; quite the contrary I've used it many times. ...
