FS: Exped Synmat UL 7 and Pillow Pump
Why are you selling it? Any problems with it, or do you just prefer something else? I was thinking of getting one, only the shorter version.

Supplex Pants
These are not great pictures, but here they are. One is a picture of them lying on the floor and another with me in them. My arm isn't long enough to get a better shot! Pants weigh 5.6 oz, b...

I wasn't very precise with measuring time. The fastest I can remember was 1.5 cups of water at around 5 minutes. The water wasn't very cold. The longest I can remember was at around 7,00...

Boomer's Guide to Lightweight Backpacking by Carol Corbridge

Golite Paradox pants
I'm not sure whether to review these in raingear or softshell clothing, because they're both. They are all-day pants, rather than rain pants to pull on over hiking pants and are made of a fab...
