    Marmot Sawtooth. I'm not sure they still sell this one. I've had mine for a few years now. Any season, don't hit the trail without it, saved my life once in July!!

    My thinking is the same as yours, Drew33. I wasn't aware that folks didn't include it as part of the hike. It's like a staple of the trail, like a merit badge, I guess. I've hiked the approach trail...

    I've tried poles on two different occasions now. The first time was while hiking in Cheaha AL several years back. This last time, I thought they would save my knees on the downhill of Angels Landing...

    I don't go in the woods without a BLP. I call it my insurance policy. They are expensive but what it your life worth?

    BA tents are pretty delicate. I've had two. I feel like I kinda traded durability (not quality, they are good quality) for an ultra lightweight tent. I'm now using an MSR.

    I lost three toenails after canyoneering in Zion last year. It grossed me out but they grew back pretty quick. After that trip (my feet were pretty well torn up) I went up a half size in boots.
