Where's the list? on 01/06/2013 21:48:02 MST Print View

Hi Eric,
I have read many of your posts and you seem to put some thought and experience into your gear choices.
So, with that in mind, where's the list? The above is not a gear list, it is an inventory of your gear room.
What would be interesting is a list, with the conditions/goals it is designed for. That is: why you chose one item over another, and how they work together.
