I found on the PCT this summer that chaffing was mostly an issue in SoCal. In this part of the hike it's often really hot so you're sweating like crazy, but you don't notice the sheer v...

I got my Hysol U-09FL from Steve Evans (Suluk46.com). He doesn't have it listed on the site but try contacting him. It has been a few years so I don't know what his situation is now. He'...

Rain mitts
I agree with John on the Versaliners. They're just too far away from waterproof. The seams aren't sealed/taped and the fabric seems to leak almost immediately. The MEC CloudRaker Mitts (...
