The newest "social" website QUORA is different in that it asks and answers questions in a Wikipedia manner. And some of those answering are very brainy and stars of their respective fields.
I just asked QUORA why we have no better synthetic garment insulators that we do. I mean why are synthetic garment insulators stuck with extruded fibers as an anwser? Or why can't they have the breakthroughs at the level we are currently seeing in waterproof/breathable laminates?
Who knows, someone may answer with innovative suggestions or even "answer" with a new product.
Is QUORA a site for backpackers to get some answers to knotty questions on gear, etc.?
