    Keep in mind that the webbing length does not determine the hipbelt fit, if you are a 46 waist you're going to need to look at pack companies that cater to that - and there won't be many. You really...

    Hipbelt wings instead of a proper full-wrap hipbelt, looks pretty decent otherwise, but that alone kills it for me.

    You'll hike much farther your second month than your first, I would bank on 300 miles for your first month, 400 for the second. That's on normal terrain, however you'll be doing the hardest miles of...

    Yes, I agree the water pressure rating is more relevant with floors, 1500 is plenty for a fly, as DuneElliot said it's Silpoly, although from my understanding coatings start to fail around the 10...

    Because Sil-poly doesn't have a high hydrostatic head rating, it's usually only around 1000-1500hh, while it's common for quality silnylon to reach 3000+, but for the X-mid at least, the have...

    Silpoly -vs- Silnylon when wet

    Heya just walked out this morning after leaving my X-mid fly up all night and was surprised how taught the material was after a long, cold, damp evening in Auckland.

    No adjustments were made...

    I have two bulging discs in my cervical spine, and a double herniated L4/L5 which is the disc most people blow out. It's gotten alot better lately but it never really goes away - the pain.

    15D is better but still pretty light for a floor, I do really like the look of the Two, being able to open both doors and let the air blow through.

    Multiple stuff sacks any day, can't stand liners. Using a liner over multiple stuff sacks might save you 2 ounces, might.

    This is correct, vertical walls mean much more than floor length, for example most people would assume a mid that was 48 high, and 10 feet long would be roomier than a mid that was 60 high and 8 feet...

    Dancing around the point again. Sloppy seam tape peeling off a $600 shelter which is brand new is unacceptable. The end. Thanks for playing.

    Well to be frank DCF has a short life compared to high quality Silnylon - so yes it's more disposable than quality silnylon. The Duplex isn't anything new if we're being honest, it's basically a...
