comment Why not use a cotton base layer?
I'm voting this down for the moment because, based on the discussion in the answers and comments, the question is (IMO) not really "why not use cotton as a base layer" and instead some sort of more nuanced discussion on how to structure layers in general.

comment Why not use a cotton base layer?
@StrongBad -- There's something besides a cotton base layer that is going on here. I've never soaked my down layer from perspiration... it evaporates out fast enough not to be a problem. Grab me in chat and maybe we could talk over your system as a whole. I suspect you have a problem somewhere other than your baselayer.

comment How can one tiller a bow without a tillering tree or similar wooden device?
If someone is in a survival situation where they need to make a bow... I suggest they flip off the Discovery Channel camera crew ;)

@StrongBad -- Water on your skin is MUCH worse than water in your insulative layer. Water conducts heat very readily.

Normally I don't care, but I actually consider this to be a fairly important question and would like to improve it if there are flaws.

comment How dependable is a cheap compass?
@Aravona -- Regarding the photoshop, notice that each button sits at a different angle. This indicates a different center of gravity for each band which would indicate that they were not all sitting in the same spot/picture originally.
