Re: Re: Re: Re: Recommend some trails in Italy?
Thanks for your suggestions Tom. I'll see if I can get a hold of that book. Not sure whether we are going to actually end up going up into the Alps. We may just be in Tuscany and Sicily in the ...

Re: Re: inner parka
Hey Dan, let us know whether the new parka is "athletic" or "boxy" in fit. Like Te-Wa I've found the original version is quite boxy and I'd prefer a slimmer fit.

Re: Foam on top

Re: Re: new fit

Re: new fit
Apparently people weren't crazy about the "athletic fit" so they are going to make the them a littler looser to allow for additional layering. Nooooooo! I hope not! There is no way...

Re: GG "The One" or Tarptent "Sublite"
Hmmm, I'll be interested to hear responses to this. When I was checking out "The One" I concluded that it would be *just* long enough for me (and I'm 6'1"). There's a...
