Re: WP/B Jacket - 2 oz - Too Good to be True???

Re: the weight
My guess is still that the 1.9 oz. weight refers to the weight of the nylon fabric itself -- and NOT the weight of the entire jacket. Methinks the rep I talked to just gave the specs a nod, and di...

Re: HH 2 oz. Jackets at SAC
Dang! Missed it! But I find it hard to believe that a wp/b jacket with hood, full zip and pit zips can weigh just 1.9 oz! Any owners out there who care to comment?

Re: Has anyone gotten wet in an Epic tent?
One great thing about EPIC is how quickly it dries. All you need is, say, half an hour of drying time (although more is better) -- and you can get hours of rain protection again. I simulated this...

Big Sky Ultra C Aluminum Tent Stakes
I've been using titanium shepherd hook stakes for years now -- loving their ultralight weight but disappointed with their suboptimal ground penetration and holding power. These stakes can be bent...
