Re: What is your "luxury" item?
A few years ago I was a tarp-sleeping, Mt. Washington pad-carrying zealot. I've backslid a bit since those days. Last night I slept on a InsulMat MaxThermo 3/4 for the first time and I think I've ...

Re: Winter Footwear for a newbie
I discovered this thread fairly late but here are more ideas: I wear smartwool light hikers inside of trail runners. Over that goes fleece-lined neoprene over-booties made for winter cyclists. Size...

Rocky Rocky GTX Socks
