I'd just like to point out that the No Sniveller is not sewn through, it's baffled. I enjoyed your article.

Thanks Stephan,
Yep, it's baffled. I must have had visions of sugar plums dancing through my head when I wrote that :)

Carol, where can a person find the Outdoor Research rain mitts (1.4oz) you listed in your gear list? I can not find them on their website and am in need of light weight rain mitts.
Thanks.

OR rain mitts haven't been made for a couple of years. See http://www.ryanjordan.com/weblog/2005/11/the_death_of_ra.html

One other option until BMW releases there new mitts are the somewhat expensive trekmate paclite rain mitts from the UK: http://www.backpackinglight.co.uk/product75.asp

Dave at Oware makes an over mitt that should work.

sounds nice, but you need to order in quantities of 20 or more! I don't have that many hands ;)
