    I've searched and find nothing specific about the subject line so I gotta ask: How much extra clothing do you carry when backpacking? For this summer I've added an extra pair of socks, spare underwear, a tshirt and a long sleeve shirt in my kit and that takes up more than a little room. I've...

    I bought one of these last year for a trip to Europe over the winter, and it quickly became my favorite shirt! It's made of merino wool, is very comfortable, not scratchy, warm when the weather is cold, and looks good! Kathmandu's RRPs can be pretty high, so you should wait until things are on...

I think I will save...

    Minimalist parenting is not doing the least amount of parenting with the most amount of gear, it is doing the most amount of parenting with the least amount of gear.

    I live in the south and it gets hot down here. A baseball cap doesn't work as my ears get sun burned so I am looking for a boonie style or something like it. I don't want to spend big bucks for something that is going to get cramed into my B.O.B. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I was browsing online late one night and saw this cool shop with jackets that have hidden pockets, ranging from 3 pockets to 14 pockets!
