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: There is no good raingear solution
There is probably a range of conditions where you'll be a little drier with eVent than Gore-Tex. And you'll be a lot drier with eVent or Gore-Tex than clothes that are completely waterproo...

Re: 30 hour rule
Health insurance is a relatively small part of the cost of hiring people. If an employer just considers employees a line on a spreadsheet they won't get the most productivity out of them. ...

Re: Re: Re: 5.0 Apex Climashield
yes, 2.5 up to waist (maybe thighs) my theory is that your torso is warmer than your legs, so insulation there is more effective
