comment What is the difference between Gore-Tex and Mountain Hardwears DryQ?
@Ross, sorry, no numbers. But I’m not sure if the numbers are going to play a substantial role, even after they are available. I have read and thought about various breathability and water resistance ratings for the older membranes and still can’t really imagine a practical difference between a 20/25 kg/m²/day jacket or between a 10k/20k mm jacket.

comment What makes a good head lamp?
Duracell alkaline. The drop in light output wasn’t drastic, but it was noticeable and enough to make me prefer regulated (I have Princeton Tex Quad).

Could be. It was a Tikka by Petzl.

comment What makes a good head lamp?
For me the main problem is that the non-regulated lamp I had went too dim after the first 20% of the total time or so. It simply did not make good use of the batteries. And my current regulated one flashes several times when the batteries are getting low and then it keeps going for a few more minutes, giving me time to change the batteries. While I agree that the regulated mode might not be perfect for everybody, I think it's a better default than the non-regulated circuits.

comment Are there any low sodium freeze dried meals?
Given that the DRI value for sodium is somewhere around 2.3 g (source), is 800 mg per serving really that high? Especially when hiking, where it’s almost certain that you will lose some sodium from sweating?
