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: Another shoe recommendation thread
I wear WPB mid height boots with breathable nylon gaiters in the wettest conditions - wet brush and melting snow - and my feet are just damp at the end of the day. Andrew talking about "p...

I just went on trip with breathable shoe. Every time I went through a stream deeper than 1 inch, my feet got wet. At end of day, my feet/socks were quite a bit wetter than if I had waterproof bre...

somebody said to use 3M 9460 tape because it doesn't creep over time some spinaker makers use tape, and then sew to prevent creeping. You want to join the two pieces with tape, then sew thr...

Re: Re: Frameless Packs: Avoiding the tube with straps?
I made a pack with two vertical tubes. It's a bit difficult to divide your stuff between the two tubes. Like my mattress goes in one tube and the sleeping bag in the other, etc.? Then the ...

I like to put my tent poles on the back side. A strap with buckle on the top to pull the top of the pole towards my back which flattens the pack. http://www.backpackinglight.com/cgi-bin/backp...
