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: +1 on this
Good for Jetboil As a counter-example of good customer service, the back cover on my Garmin GPS broke. I think it's a defective design but that's subjective. I called them and they wan...

Re: More durable bladder for the Sawyer Squeeze?
I've used the bag which I babied. Slowly squeezed water out of it or let gravity do it, but then I forget about it and water overflows onto the ground. With the soda bottle I can apply more...

Re: Re: waffling about rain jackets
Someone asked REI and they said they would go over a year if it's a manufacturing defect.

Re: Storage sense
I think mine inflates better when it's warm. I just leave it inflated with valve open at home. Probably it doesn't matter much. You could roll it up partially inflated with valve clo...
