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: Lightest line that fits Lineloc 3s?
I have some limited use with Lawson Kline's 2.3 mm Glowire in the LineLoc 3's, and they always worked for me. However, I have heard others say that over time, they can start slipping. Mine ...

Re: thanks for the research

Like others, I found that it wasn't the best option... Sure, it was super cheap and super easy to make, but it is far from perfect... I have about 4 or 5 of them that I have tinkered with, and ...

Maybe see if Luke from Lukes Ultralite can add some to your existing jacket, or order a whole new one?
