BPL Absoroka pack question
I have a BPL Absoroka pack, size large. It seems to be just a little bit long in the torso for me, maybe an inch. Is there a way to adjust (shorten) the torso length a little bit? After taking it a...

Cheap poncho
Actually, Delmar, Coleman does make one. They're fairly flimsy, but probably no worse than polycro. They're intended for emergencies, they weigh 2.5 oz., they're cheap, and they're ...
