My Locale Wet & Humid Southeast....
About Me My stomping grounds are the SE US, and 90% of the time, somewhere on the AT in GA, TN, or NC. Other times I enjoy going to the Smokies, or other smaller wilderness areas such as the Savage Gulf area.
Most of my trips are between 2 - 5 days long, with rare 7 day long trips. My total pack weights are generally under 20 lbs, unless trying new gear, or carrying extra for the kids. In the dead of summer, I enjoy SUL hikes, and have given thought to XUL (almost there...)

Re: Suunto Core v Casio PAG240-1
I can't say which is better... they both seem to be great watches, but neither are perfect... I have the Core and have been using it as my everyday watch for almost 2 years. This includes hikin...

Re: Zpacks Arc Blast: Max load carrying?
Honestly, I think the only way to answer this question is to load yours up with your anticipated load and go for a hike with it... As you may notice already, the answers will vary from person to pe...

Re: What shelter am I looking for?
I agree with the comments on the Yama Mountain Gear... particularly the Cirriform SW tent. I long wanted a Contrail, but the weight was a bit more than what I wanted, and I too wanted a cuben canop...

Re: custom Lite Trail cook Kit
Nice! What is the weight of the cone, and how efficient is it with Esbit?

Yet another vote for GooseFeet Gear!
I am throwing in my vote towards the GooseFeet Gear down socks! These things are one of the best purchases I have made. Mine have 25% overfill, and are made with M50. Completely downproof, and not ...

Re: Zpacks multi-pack vs belt pockets

odor free 4 g tabs
Just for the record, I can't even detect a hint of smell from my 4 g tabs, which is only one reason why I prefer them over the stinky, fish smelling, 14 g tabs. Saying that, I have never shoved...

Roger, I know you said you didn't want a debate, so this isn't a debate... but I gotta say that my Suunto Core is not temperature biased as you said your's was. Mine consistently reads ...

Re: Re: Best watch with thermometer and altimeter?
Scott, if your friend has had that many issues with the Core, it sounds like he needs to send it back in. I have done lots of swimming, both in fresh water and saltwater, while wearing mine and ha...
