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: shop-vac?
I just put one hand stitch for each baffle to keep down in. If you push it way down, and don't manipulate it more than necesary, down will stay there. And it just seems like doing it by han...

Re: Drip Stoppers
Just use a pint zip loc bag. Plus, it adds a little insulation to keep it from freezing.
