    I've not owned one of ZPack's backpacks, but have their multipack, which I use as a chest pack, in both the hybrid DCF and gridstop. Both have been worn outside my raingear in torrential showers and...

    If this keeps up, our paths could cross...

    Strange way to describe an extremely heavy, bulky, underpowered, 1xCR123A headlamp. Unless you meant the Maximus, which is even bigger and heavier.
    The Minimus really is a well-built light, but it's...

    ^^^Agreed.

    As a former "flashaholic", I'm not a fan of NiteCore as a brand, but a friend sent me a NU25 a while back. I've carried it to "test", and used it for night hiking a couple of times,...

    Those MLD rain mitts are pretty great for that, with some thin gloves or liners under them. My main concern, and the reason I use them sparingly, is that, being just a thin shell equivalent to a...
