    I think that's a fine idea, really. I have used Platy bags for years and they really are virtually indestructible. For warm weather rides with limited water, I use two Platypus Big Zip 3-liter...

    You know that I am no HD apologist and would rather ride a giant tortoise than a Harley, but you have to admit, far more riders travel on those hunks of junk than any other brand of moto. At least in...

    I too have never had GoreTex fail me, but I'm also diligent with my maintenance of the outer DWR coating. Living in a part of Alaska that got nearly 10 feet of rain per year, I learned that GTX just...

    Rover ergonomics are just weird. You'll find yourself smashed up against the door with a huge chunk of real estate between you and the passenger. It's not bad, okay maybe a little, but it is...

    I'm a huge fan of wool as a compliment to high-tech modern fills and materials, but it does have limitations. During my month in Iceland this year I finally broke down and bought a beautiful handmade...

    Being a dweller of the Southwest, I find fatbike tires are like vacuums sucking up any pokey protrusion within 100 feet. I get quite a few flats per year on my fatbike.

    I also think you're build...

    I too warped the heck out of my Griliput. It's not a bad solution, but it sure is pretty darn delicate. Ever since getting my Slatgrill, I haven't used anything else.

    I have a few Fjallraven pieces and really like them. I would buy more, but some of it can be a little expensive, although it is priced appropriately for the quality.

    That's an interesting question. You and I travel the same circles to some degree. From what I can tell, bikepackers glom together in a unified love of their hobby. I have a Jeep, but it's the wrong...
