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.

top loading machine
I just want to clarify that not all top loading machines are equal. Many today are now made without an agitator (that big tower in the middle of the tub). Mine does not have an agitator and as I me...

Re: Washing - Lost Down Loft
A few years ago my wife and I bought a top loading washer without an agitator, and a new dryer. I can't remember the sizes off the top of my head though... sorry. Anyway, I washed my Marmot Hel...

Yes, my UL Down Inner Parka fits me exactly like my Ex Light. My Apline Light Down Parka is a bit larger though.
