    I question the protein cause, my go doctors recommendation was much more nuanced than that. Google gout diet to see trigger foods. For me it is a problem of accumulation over time. Alcohol,...

    I too am a convert and really like a fleece hoody. As said the temperature regulation on the go is great and you can stay warm in a cold windy rain without sacrificing your hat. That said I find it...

    Thanks! I guess it might be worth waiting a bit to see if anything pops up before getting the item there or elsewhere.
  7. Does Sierra Trading Post ever give site wide coupon codes anymore?

    I haven't ordered from STP in awhile and now that I want something I see no discount codes anywhere. Neither the gear flyer or online coupon sites. Both used to be good for at least 20 -30 % off. ...

    I would take at least a light pair of liner gloves. Not much weight for the potential upside in comfort. I might even be tempted to take some ul w/b mittens.

    I am far from set on anything. Just doing some long term scouting for a great deal on a close to the best 0 winter bag. I have never paid more than 70% of STPs prices. 340$ would not be bad if...

    I assume you have rain gear. I would take jacket,pants, and mitten shells.
