">I've noticed there are some super helpful people here on BPL.....
Yeah, seriously. I don't have a hose, I don't have a scale, I DO have a question, and if you don't have an answer then you shouldn't waste time responding to the thread.
When someone asks "Is this a good tent?" The answer isn't "Go buy it, get in your backyard, perform tests, and tell us what happened." People wait for people who know to just answer.
I fully understand that you are fully committed to keeping the BPL drama alive and for that, I salute you. Stuff sacks are complicated and I'm glad to see that you've brought your concerns to BPL.
"I've got a big bike trip coming up and I have two Ortlieb panniers. I gutted the organizational insert because it weighed a lot.
If I wanted to pack two or three simple drawstring stuff sacks to keep my cooking gear, first aid, and tent repair stuff organized instead of having it slosh around in the Ortlieb, what are my lightest options?
Is Cuben Fiber the lightest, and if so, is there a cheaper alternative that comes close? Is there a very durable mesh stuff sack that gets the weight down there?
These are purely organizational, they don't need to be water resistant at all. However, since they're gonna have things like a metal pot in them, they shouldn't be too flimsy."
The part that sticks out to me is:
"These are purely organizational, they don't need to be water resistant at all. However, since they're gonna have things like a metal pot in them, they shouldn't be too flimsy."
And of that:
"they don't need to be water resistant at all."
As the thread transitions to waterproofing your camera, a few BPL members had the audacity to try and offer some helpful suggestions. Lesser men would have been gracious for the input and thanked these bumpkins for their time. I think that it's absolutely outstanding that you were able to share your feelings with the world:
Max, the fact that you were annoyed is completely unacceptable. I think that the only acceptable solution is for you to post your BPL manifesto for all to read so they will never ever annoy you again.
