Essense's pad access...
From PJ's write-up... "A second "crab", for me at least, is the inaccessibility of the pad for use as a sit-pad during the day at rest stops. An external pad pocket would have been my preference. ...

DIY kits included in round-ups?
I noticed in both the current down jacket and the older synthetic pullover/jacket round-ups the available DIY kits were not included. I would have loved to see the BPL DIY staff assemble a www.t...
