My Locale Western US
About Me Mostly 2 to 3 day loops, with a couple weeklong trips too, likely going 2 weeks or more with upcoming severance. Lightening up but with an eye towards toughness and hiking convenience (secure drying on the trail. quick set up, etc...), but also a bit better food (and beverage) for most overnights. Then again I might want to do a spartan "fast n'light" overnight ... and the gear closet grows.
I'll update my gear list tomorrow ...

Re: Re: Re: Rain pants = Wind pants
I had an REI version of these for about 10 years until they disintegrated. Great for camp when the sun and temps go down, and function fairly well as rain pants in short showers. My actual rain p...
