Klymit Xlite short w/evazote
I use a Klymit Xlite short under a 1/8" evazote pad from GG. Works great with a quilt, no need for a sleeping bag to fill in the gaps. The evazote has some tack so nothing slides around. We...

Double Stitch baffles

Re: Re: Re: Sods
I switched to trail runners about 5 months ago and never will go back unless it is mountaineering time. Some 370 miles later, I find my ankles are much stronger and like you said, it is much easie...
