Re: How did I get so heavy? Late Aug JMT solo
Well, heavy is certainly relative. I carried way more weight and I never thought it was heavy. I did have a lot less clothing and a lot less electronic stuff so those might be two areas where you c...

Re: Confusing info about Cap 4 vs R1
I've only tried the Cap 4 and R1. In my experience, the Cap 4 is too warm for hiking unless it's under 20F. I've never been out when it's cold enough for the R1. R1 is definitely wa...

Re: Rolled or Folded Ridgerest as Packframe
I always felt that I couldn't get all my stuff into and out of a pack with a rolled ridgerest (rolled like a large hoop). Folded works better, but I don't like folding a ridgerest. I switch...

Re: Thoughts on a lightweight crampon bag

Re: Hooded or non hooded baselayer for cold weather running

Re: Backpack for BearVault 200 - JMT
I'm not sure about the BearVault 200, but I used a BearVault500. I carried 9 days of food from Whitney Portal to VVR, but I think I ate it in 7 days. Anyways, I carried it in a ULA Catalyst. It...
