I got an ileostomy a year ago. Now I'm ready for hiking again, but the waistbelt on my rucksack is pressing exactly on the ostomy. If any one on SP know about the problem, and how to solve it, please let me know. Jorgen, Copenhagen.

Aconcagua Gear help

It has an R-value of 5.68, which is nice, but alternatively it has a weight of 3.8lbs. Do you think that the weight is enough to pass it up? I really don't want to spend $160 on an xlite. An alternative is to go with a SOLite. Im trying to prepare for winter in ...

I have Spantiks but thinking they may be overkill?

Does anyone think it would be worth picking up a pair of Nepal Evo's or should I just make do?

1940s-60s Soft Iron Pitons and Steel biners Simond Subai

I bought a pile of climbing gear in the late 60s and this stuff was in the box amongst the aluminum biners & chrome-moly pitons. I'm guessing they’re 1940s - 60s stuff.
