My Locale Colorado Rockies
About Me I'm 45 years old, 6'4" and 195 lbs. I've backpacked in the Colorado Rockies, the Wasatch and Uinta mountains, and in Zions National Park. I mountain bike in the Colorado Rockies. I've kayaked in Yellowstone and on Flaming Gorge, and rafted the Green, Colorado and Snake rivers. My trips are usually a week long or less. I love to hike wherever I can. I'm an Assistant Scout Master and I'm often out with the Scouts. My immediate goal is to thru-hike the Colorado trail. I've lived in Utah, Ohio, Illinois, Argentina, California, and Colorado.

Re: Re: Artic Pack as Sleep System
Jason, I have not done this myself, but it has been done by others. You assume correctly that the flap and webbing would need to be cut off. You will not need to hot weld or use any other adhesives...

Artic Pack as Sleep System
I discovered as I was playing with my new pack that my sleeping pad fit in the 50 Liter dry bag almost perfectly. It occurred to me to use them to make an inflatable air mattress. So I trimmed my G...

Brian, I'm a briefs, not a boxer guy so my feedback may not be useful to you. I've been wearing Ibex Breezer briefs for years now and there is still no sign of wear in any of them. I wear t...

Re: Re: Re: Merino Wool L/S Zip

Re: Merino Wool L/S Zip
I have long term experience with Ibex and Smartwool. They both make excellent products. I tend to favor Ibex because they tend to have what I want. Ibex also has the 17.5 micron merino which is ver...

I have, on occasion, had someone notice my pack and comment that I must be one of THOSE people who cuts the handle off their toothbrush. It's fun to say "you have no idea" and then sh...

Re: Re: All-In-One Ti-Stake, Toothbrush, Spoon, Fork, ~5 Grams Each
Kevin, I use the titanium nail stake as a toothbrush handle, a spare tent stake, and also to make pilot holes in hard ground for my lighter stakes. I have no problem cleaning it and using it as a t...
