Wore these almost constantly for about three months - just washed them periodically. Great product held up very well, did not stretch, pucker, rip, etc. After about a month the crotch seam stitching started to fray slightly. I put down a close, snug blanket stitch along the whole crotch with some cotton thread and that stopped any further fraying. Impressed with how these held up while walking and skiing. They were worn inside a pair of heavy, coarse woven wool pants or tight fitting jeans. The fabric shows little sign of abrasion or wear - not even the little nits that my smartwool gets.

Fairly happy with the warmth, comfort range. Could be a little thicker for the coldest temps, 35 and below while stationary. Guess they are only made for 33.

Great product and among the most affordable expedition weight merino out there.

Snowshoeing Discussion / Article on Snowshoes from the Beaver 1941
« on: December 08, 2011, 03:59:56 pm »
Thought this would be of interest.

The Beaver was published by HBC starting in 1920 and apparently the Canadian Historical Society acquired the rights to it in 1994.

Lots of info on construction, design, improvised shoes (no mortised joints or holes) and other good stuff.

Enjoy!

Back Country Skiing Discussion / Swiss Military Skis - Bindings
« on: November 21, 2010, 02:24:33 pm »
Can anyone tell if the bindings on these skis (http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/cb/used-swiss-mil-ski-set-with-bindings-2-poles-and-climbing-skins.aspx?a=170515) are 75mm/3pin or something else? They are evidently cable bindings that lock at the heel.

Seems like a good deal if they work with normal tele boots.

Other Winter Camping Gear / Kifaru Stove pipe
« on: December 27, 2008, 01:34:19 pm »
Any thoughts on using a Kifaru style stove pipe (as opposed to sectioned or tapered pipe) in an A-frame (Snowtrekker) style tent?

The stove pipe would be at an angle, rather than vertical as in a Kifaru/tipi style application.

Basically it is a sheet of steel rolled lengthwise for transport and width wise for use.

It uses wire rings to keep from unrolling

Galvanized and stainless steel of this type is sold for roof flashing. Not sure if it is tempered.

Please see:
