My Locale Arkansan in Seattle
About Me I have a tendency to buy the display item of pieces of gear that I want because, typically, they seem to be the only "smalls" that outfitters keep in stock.

My trail name, 'demo' comes from a display Thermarest pillow I bought that has the word DEMO marked in very large letters in permanent marker.

Re: Favorite socks???
injinji tetrasok (synthetic version), micro length as base sock, with [insert your favorite wool sock here] over it. I recently switched from Smartwool Hikers to Bridgedale Trekkers as my outer sock.

anyone have any spare Reflectix?
I am not having much luck finding it in local hardware stores. Does anyone have some spare Reflectix they are willing to part with (I'll pay) or know of a reputable place to order it online?...

How about Ibex?
I would definitely also consider the Ibex Woolies Zip-T. If you don't want a zip on yours, they also offer a non-zipped front version. P.S. I'm wearing the Woolies Zip-T (in blue) in m...

Re: Back on Topic
oh yeah, the topic! I too am unhappy with the durability my SW boxer-briefs have given me. To alleviate the problem, I have a trip this weekend in the Olympics and just ordered some Icebreaker ...

My only complaints tend to line up the same as those from others. It seems, although I can't prove a shred of this, that they are in cahoots with Nalgene as bottles from said manufacturer are the...

Icebreaker Balaclava Lite
Nice little piece of headgear here. Impressive how much warmth it adds when on your head. My typical setup is wearing a Tilly hat during an entire trip and adding the balaclava when I need some wa...

Ibex Woolies Rib Zip T-Neck
I completely concur with everything the previous reviewer stated. Just as fair warning, like stated above, the little ribs in the fabric do make it clingy. However, this does give it the ideal effec...

This is indeed a great little pack. On a past trip, one of my accompanying backpackers made a comment about how it looked like a oversized daypack...that made me smile. Don't let that generalization...
