    Yep, exactly. For my kids specifically (ages 10 and 12), I wanted something in shorter length - I got them the 20" - and I wanted the binding to be easy since I'd probably often be the one attaching...

    I got both of my kids Symbioz Hyperflex for Christmas. They look and feel very solid. Great binding. I fully plan to swipe them and test them out myself. Time will tell on the durability piece.

    Thanks for the link - that high level summary in the journal African Health Sciences doesn't have any data, though there is a paper in Archives of Internal Medicine (might be paywalled?) from 2012...

    Hard for me to add any more to SAR-EMT's 4:44 post from 2005. I lean strongly towards what s/he says in that post. Don't administer such meds to anyone other than yourself.

    My dad and I went 'no guts, no glory' for our first winter backpack in the late 90's. We both had crap synthetic '0 degree' (in quotes for a reason) sleeping bags. It was -12 that night in January....

    Couple of thoughts to add to the other good info here:
    1. I have an Osprey Aether 85L. It's gigantic, not too heavy (4.5 lbs?), but I find it pretty uncomfortable and sort of hate it. If all my gear...

    I agree with all that has been said so far. And I'm also curious Sierra what made you un-order the book? I haven't seen the lecture you referenced. I thought the book was simply outstanding, even...

    Me too. Gaia has been amazing in the town conservation areas closer to my house too. It's quite remarkable how accurate it is, really. That said, my iPhone battery is nearly useless if it gets below...

    I think people look at the information directly in front of them and make decisions accordingly. This is why it's sometimes difficult to convince people of some phenomenon or another (global climate...

    I regard the situation as fluid. My guess is there won't be additional travel restrictions for traveling to NH - currently there is quarantine for people visiting NH from states outside New England,...

    Can confirm. I think I've shared this before, but if not, here is how the Tablelands looked last time I was up there. We didn't make the summit and ended up navigating back to Abol slide by compass.
