Re: Re: Re: Fastest Known Times (FKT)
I find the "smell the roses" thing funny. Someone who fast packs a trail gets to see a whole lot more trail and hence a greater variety of landscapes than someone who goes slow. Totally a...

Re: Re: MDBB > MS
Hmm, yes. There's also some kind of laminar flow resistance effect. So, on long vertical baffles, as long as the cross section of the baffle tube isn't too large, and there is the right ...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Interesting
Yes, I think the two most important factors will be mouth size and also maximal distance between baffles (MDBB). MDBB is important, as the larger the distance between two baffles, the less three...

Re: Re: x-cords makes buckles with integrated whistle AND flint

CT1K.18 .69oz Cuben Fibre

The reinforcing tape is coming away here, but is that actually a problem? I'm guessing that the rest of it will actually be quite strong. If this seam needs to be sealed, then maybe tape shoul...

Bivy and dog tarp
I agree with the Event bivy. Make sure you have a mesh option in it somehow. A carefully designed "dog tarp" could make all the world of difference in comfort using the bivy stealth ca...
