Going Light
I have the MLD e-Vent mitts and find them just perfect for what I need them for. I haven't seam-sealed them but I'm not looking to do any diving with them, so I likely won't bother. ...

Same reason I don't use campbell's soup cups for a cup and a won-ton soup container for a bowl and a trash bag for a poncho and poly-pro for a groundsheet. I like well-made, durable stuff, ...

It helps with both. The extent that it helps is up for some debate, but part of the draw to hydrophobic down is the resistance to moisture buildup from water vapor from your body.

Kelty backpacks redwing 3100, red cloud 6650

Boreas Men's Buttermilk 40
Fit: This bag has a superb fit that places more pressure on your lower back, which distributes weight to the hips and keeps your upper back cool. I was impressed with how well this pack vented, even w...
