Re: Thanks for all the recommendations so far
You really don't need that many layers. I carried the clothing that I hiked in the entire time for sun protection and then I carried a couple of layers for resting or bad weather. I hiked in...

Re: Base layer recommendations for PCT thru
I would go with something along the lines of Patagonia Capilene 2 or maybe 3. I typically only used my baselayer while hiking on cooler mornings or evenings. I did wear it one some rare days when t...

Re: Outdoor Research Ferrosi Hoodie
I also have the Ferrosi, which I bought just for rock climbing. Oddly enough, it's great for ski touring when there is no precip. I had to size down to a small because it's cut very chub...

Re: A Visual Paradigm for Windshirts - Multiple Axis of Understanding.-Rev 0
I don't think this has been done before because it's not necessary. If you want to display these four attributes, it's best to just list them out. The most obvious problem is that t...

Re: Jansport warranty experiences?
Jansport warranty used to be outstanding. I haven't used it in years though. I do have the same pack that I used for school that has the same problems. I should get around to sending it back if...

Re: eVent jackets (again)
Be careful with the MHW Drq.Q Elite stuff. They don't call it eVent so they don't have to build the garment to eVent specifications. I have seen some poor design features on Dry.Q elite clo...

Re: Pacific Crest Trail 2014 NOBO

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...
