Re: simBLISSity Gaiters
Do the simBLISSity gaiters slip over your foot or do they have a velcro strip and open up?

Re: Diad Sources
Chris, Keep an eye on ebay. I found three there now, though not in your size range. I got mine there for $70+5 ship. If there are a few auctions, I look for the one that ended without selling or...

Rating 4/5 because the construction was under par. They use tape to form the bivy shape from a single piece of material. The tape job was sloppy with some holes in the bottom. Other than that a great ...

Thumbs up to GG. They don't make a lot of items, rather a few quality niche packs and other gear. I really like their sourcing of other industry items and presenting them for backpacking, such as the ...
