My Locale Western US
About Me Mostly 2 to 3 day loops, with a couple weeklong trips too. Debating whether to go 2 weeks or more. 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: MYOG: Supplex Pants
Great idea. Supplex has a great feel to it. How long would these last (both fabric and stitching)?

Re: An Ultralight Philosophy Outside of Hiking

Feedback Re: Re: Backpacker just came in the mail

Re: target market
Good point about price, Tom. Many people may be priced out of the UL market but could get into a relatively lightwt but full-featured bag.

Regulations
I'd read the human resources regulations governing employees breaks/lunch/dismissal times and see how much leeway a supervisor is given first. If there are no set times, such as mandating 15 m...
