Re: Recommendation for lightweight breatheable rainjacket

I love Frogg Toggs, but they have got to do something about their zippers. I have never had a zipper last very long on a Frogg Togg jacket. Fortunately, they also come with snaps.

Re: Plastic nesting cup?

I use these. It nests in my Snow Peak titanium mug great and gives me a total of 3 cups.

Edit: This won't nest over your bottle, but it's a great little cup all the same.

There's Ray Mears and Les Stroud. Avoid everything else produced in the last 30-40 years. Everything else is not survival, it's drama.

Re: ECEEN 10W solar panel charger review.

Thanks. Being able to charge multiple devices (2) is important to me. There's a lot of low light in the Alabama woods, plus the sunlight gets blocked by all the national championship trophies, so I think I'll go with the 10 watt anyway. I've been thinking about picking up a small solar panel for a w...

No, it's unique to Danner. I can wear a wide - not extra wide, mind you - in just about any other brand besides Danner. They make their boots - even wide and extra wide sizes - narrower than other brands.

Re: Help picking a sleeping bag

I've been using down bags for years in all sorts of weather. You're right about getting them wet. My suggestion is - don't. A down bag and a dry bag is still lighter than a comparable synthetic bag. And a trash bag will do in a pinch. Keeping a sleeping bag dry is a minor inconvenience and a rather ...

I've been looking for a 32 oz titanium bottle for ages. No one makes one so you'd corner the market. I don't know how many people would buy one, but cups and pots seem to be doing well.
