My Locale Oregon and Washington
About Me I started hiking about 45 years ago. My first backpack was 40 years ago. I currently try to do one backpack trip of 5 nights every month (which can be tricky in the winter) 20 to 50 miles. Mostly I stay around Mount Hood, Columbia Gorge, Mount Adams, Goat Rocks, and the Olympic Peninsula. In recent years I have shifted to lightweight - my pack weight without food and water is about 15 lb (7 kg). I make a lot of my own gear - silnylon tarp-tent, bivy, synthetic bag, simple bag style pack. My sleeping pad is a Therm-a-Rest air mattress.

Re: Re: Ursack Approved by IGBC
do you need the aluminum liner to be bear resistant? I don't think so based on my reading of their website. without liner - $70, 7.5 ounces $100, 18 ounces with liner

Re: Bleach clogging filter?

Re: Sawer recommends
if you put bleach in it, there's a chance stuff will clog up pores, maybe better to just use water
