In last month’s SD LIVE event, I discussed multiple ways to help maintain a relative level of comfort and safety when backpacking in the rain. Some methods are simply a matter of packing differently or packing more: sleeping clothes, camp shoes, breathable footwear, group tarp, down insulation, and a pack liner. Other methods are techniques: taking care of your feet, packing your pack, starting a fire, and “the reset dry.” Watch the video for all the details. My co-star is Michael Glavin, Brand Manager for Sierra Designs.
SD LIVE is a regular online event. It’s an excellent way for us to make real connections with the backpacking community, and to share our knowledge and exciting developments at SD. Watch past episodes plus other informative videos. The SD LIVE event is scheduled for Tuesday, May 12. Details will be announced on this website, my Facebook page and Twitter feed, and on www.SierraDesigns.com and via its mailing list.
In the video I reference a few pictures. These were available during the live broadcast but are not integrated into the recorded video. Here they are:
