    And Uber heavy.

    Berikade (wild-ideas) makes carbon fiber canisters, pricey, but almost a pound lighter than the blue-plastic or black plastic canisters. I sprung for the $300 for my Berikade...

    Well, I was a bit short but per google it's 5.5 miles (vs. 3-4) from the SP office to the Dollar General in Port Jervis, I wasn't talking miles on some hiking trail, but on the road (23), which I...

    I think if one needs 10,000 mAH, the Nitecore looks like the way to go (and I love my nitecore headlamp, best headlamp I've owned).

    Better yet is a 1/4 zip hoodie, which I suppose most are anyway.

    Anyone hitting the CDT this spring?

    Just curious... there doesn't seem to be any "CDT action" (or PCT, for that matter) on here, so I thought I might as well give a western trail a "bump".

    I'm going to hit the CDT in late March...
