    Cotton Clothing?

    Yeah I pick up some good-condition used W&G when it comes along, an occasional NWT item. So far as I know, all of those old REAL outfitters got bought up and turned into mall junk or closed down. W&G, A&F, Banana Republic, Land's End, Eddie Bauer. There's Filson, but it seems a lot of the good...

    Cotton Clothing?

    At the moment I'm most concerned with the weather in the Southwest, so cotton or cotton over light merino. Would be interesting to really look in detail into what these guys used when the going got cold though. You've given me some good search terms there! :)

    Cotton Clothing?

    I like the feel of it, I even like the sound of it. It won't melt into my skin if things get toasty, and it won't leach toxins through my skin. :)

    Cotton Clothing?

    If only all these legendary explorers who summited Everest, made it to the south pole, crossed deserts and oceans before synthetics existed, had known that... ;) Cotton, wool, down and leather worked for them...

    Cotton Clothing?

    Anyone know of any durable/hard-wearing cotton outerwear brands? People were getting out there before synthetics. Any of the old labels--or new--still making the good stuff? Thanks for any help!

    Anyone Running James Baroud RTT & Awning with Eezi-Awn K9 Rack?

    No problems yet--items arrived and now sitting in the garage waiting on me to address some roof rust and a leak by the windshield. :) Just wondering about mating everything up with the K9. Speaking of which, if you have ANY plans to put ANYthing else on the roof, ever--you might want to consider...

    Handmade Leather Boots for Overlanding / Hiking / Etc.?

    Just checking back on this thread; lot of good suggestions. Ultimately I wend with Nicks Handmade Boots 8" Overlander model, after sending them some pictures of my socked feet in a Brannock device. (It's REALLY hard to find those with all the parts still there; forget shoe stores, try REI.)...

    Anyone Running James Baroud RTT & Awning with Eezi-Awn K9 Rack?

    James Baroud RTT & Awning with Eezi-Awn K9 Rack? Anyone running this combo? Tent needs to mount above the slats because of shell mounting position, and to (hopefully) provide clearance for awning brackets. Apparently, L-shaped awning mount brackets need to point DOWN instead of up for clearance...

    Handmade Leather Boots for Overlanding / Hiking / Etc.?

    Yeah; looking at them too. I'm finding that they're all spendy but, hey, quality costs, right? And if you're gonna wear 'em for twenty years, suddenly they're not all that spendy anymore... :)
