Re: Non baggy, finely sized pants recommendation
Patagonia Sol Patrol are in 1" increments, aren't baggy, and are super light. I love mine. Patagonia usually has cosmetic seconds for pretty cheap and I haven't been able to find any...

Re: Which (non Gortex) Inov8 is best for (narrow-footed) backpacking?"

Re: Re: Need Lighter Clothes (Can you help?)
+1 on the sol patrol. I've used a pair for about a year as my main hiking pants and they're still going strong. Patagonia usually has cosmetic 2nds for cheap too.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: what to make with M50?
