My Locale Oregon and Washington
About Me I started hiking about 45 years ago. My first backpack was 40 years ago. I currently try to do one backpack trip of 5 nights every month (which can be tricky in the winter) 20 to 50 miles. Mostly I stay around Mount Hood, Columbia Gorge, Mount Adams, Goat Rocks, and the Olympic Peninsula. In recent years I have shifted to lightweight - my pack weight without food and water is about 15 lb (7 kg). I make a lot of my own gear - silnylon tarp-tent, bivy, synthetic bag, simple bag style pack. My sleeping pad is a Therm-a-Rest air mattress.

Re: Re: Go for the Steripen Freedom
You could have other devices that are USB rechargeable like GPS, radio, flashlight,... A bit of a paradigm shift from replaceable batteries

Re: Custom Synthetic 2.5 jacket
Nice looking jacket interesting shapes of brown, green, and black are the 2.5 and 5 oz sections for some reason or are they just what you had available.
