Re: Pants - BPL Thorofare v. Montbell Stretch Windpants & others
Thanks for the advice everyone. Of course, the different opinions are making it harder for me to decide instead of easier, but that's to be expected. Does anyone know of any simple supplex ny...

"None of us have done this because a tunnel design often relies on the elasticity of the fabric. Cuban has none. And the seams would have to be really within 1 mm or it would be sloppy."...

Re: Cuben Tent Question
I'd really like to see a cuben tunnel tent similar to the TT Cloudburst or Stephenson Warmlite. It'd shed wind really well, and with carbon fiber poles should be pretty light.

Re: Re: Gear choices for the PCT

Re: Gear choices for the PCT

"I did the loop on October 24th in 12 hrs, 31 mins." Nice video. I like your others, too. 12 and a half hours is pretty quick, particularly with postholing. What did you do for food...

Re: Pack mesh

RailRiders Adventure Shirt
