    My Sawyer Mini is not quite outside my circle of trust. But checking it before each trip is now (unfortunately) part of my routine, as I no longer trust it if unchecked.

    That sounds like they were intentionally being jackwagons. In the interest of decorum I'll refrain from saying what should happen to them.

    I've done the Rich Mtn Loop Trail, New Years 2019. There were some shallow stream crossings and a waterfall off trail. I don't know if they'd be there year-round or not. I wouldn't count on it. The...

    FWIW:

    down bag, washed in tub with Zote (grated off shreds from a solid bar). Lukewarm water. Soaked for a bit then "massaged" through with hands.
    Rinsed twice. Not sure 2nd rinse was even...

    Thanks. It's curious, though, why Outland USA is not listed as a dealer on Optimus' web site (at least, not by searching by city/state or zip). REI is listed, but they don't carry this stove.

    Thanks - I phrased my question(s) poorly. I meant to ask if they were still being produced at all, and if so, was there a distributor in the USA?

    I don't think there's a trick; you're just encountering inherent challenges with small ground tarps. I have a 3mx3m (roughly 10' square) tarp and there are a myriad of cool shapes you can pitch it...

    I agree with this - following the "cotton kills" mantra unquestioningly in the heat of summer can make hiking life more miserable, not less.

    The other day I was lucky enough to hike at elevation...

    I think a number of people have had similar experiences. It's probably an issue of control, sometimes just called bureaucracy. They have a certain way of doing things, want to be sure it's done by...

    Awesome graph, cmoulder! And yeah, thinness makes up for the lower conductivity. So it's mostly price vs. weight, as with so many other things.
