About Me Grew up camping and backpacking in Texas, New Mexico and Colorado. Then went to the east coast for grad school...then job...then family. Twenty years later we were able to reach escape velocity from Washington DC and relocated the entire family to the PNW. I've fallen in love with the Cascades as much as the Rockies. And we spend 4 weeks every year in Montana near Glacier.

Re: delaminate
I just blew out my 1 L Sawyer bag (the old version). But not the way other people are describing. I have found even the old ones to work fine for filtering as long as you roll them to squeeze wate...

Re: Re: 1 lb 6oz??
Yep, finding weights for Stoic bags is like solving a mystery. I have the older 30deg bag with the half center zip. Ended up weighing just under 24oz. So they have added more than 5oz without ad...
