Re: Re: O2 Rainshield Jacket
Don't wear a hat. Rain will likely work its way through the collar of the rain jacket -- not to mention pooling into the unused hood. Instead, wear a cap to serve as 'visor", but still allowing y...

Re: Aqua Mira tip

Re: Solar Chargers for Long Trips

Micropur MP 1 Chlorine Dioxide Water Purifier Tablet
Comparison to Potable Aqua above is incorrect. For bacteria and viruses, Micropur is just as effective and easy to use (15 minutes treatment time). It is only for protozoa (e.g. cryptosporidium) t...
