My Locale John S. hasn't told us about their geographical region yet.
About Me Originally from Louisiana, I enjoyed camping in my Boy Scouting days and eventually became an Eagle Scout. Many years later (2002), I discovered backpacking after going on an REI multisport trip to Alaska. My first backpack was to Grand Canyon, and I was hooked!

Re: Re: Western Mountaineering, Linelite, bag liner
It's a classic piece. I have one that I used this year in Iceland. I think Sea to Summit is making something comparable now and maybe others.
