Re: Re: Winter Gloves and Miitts system
Rbh Designs makes a few excellent mitts with built-in VBL. I purchased both their lighter and heavier versions. I use various weight liner gloves with the lighter mitts. I used to bring the heav...

Re: Just Say No To Wicking: Non-Traditional Base Layers Based on a Next-to-Skin Fishnet Model
I still use my old polypropylene fishnet shirt I got from L.L. Bean at least 20 years ago. Great for cooler hikes.

Re: Re: Weird

I ordered a tent about mid-December of last year also, and would be stunned at this point if it ever showed up. I suspect that you'll never get a refund simply because Big Sky doesn't have it - the f...
