PCT Bivy/Tarp
I hiked the PCT this year with a Superlite Bivy, also, and I really liked it. I slept in it literally every night on the trail (it was my ground cloth). I had the small netting, but that was plen...

Compactor vs. roasting bags
>A simple HEFTY trash COMPACTOR bag from the grocery store is all you need. One will last the whole AT (maybe). 2.2 oz. No way. I went through at least 3 compactor bags on the PCT. And the...

Roasting bag
I bought roasting bags at the grocery store. The "turkey-sized" bag was exactly the same size as my sleeping bag stuff sack.

No problem
I have a Shangrila 1, and I've never had any trouble folding it up. I couldn't tell you off-hand what I do, but it always fits in the stuff sack just fine. The material is pretty tough, s...

Mountain Laurel Design FS exodus
I used an Exodus FS for my 5-month CDT thru-hike. The pack was, by far, my least favorite piece of gear. What I didn't like: - The pack squeaked loudly and persistently, with almost every ste...
