comment Will the benefit of an axe outweigh the drawbacks and win over a large knife?
A saw is indeed a very good choice for individual camping: it is lighter, faster and easier to use then an axe. If your group is >1 people, you can also use a "string" saw like this one: rei.com/product/775079/…

comment Are there 1-person 4-season tents?
@MarkE, oh, I'm not suggesting any model, just found something under "4 season" in Ferrino catalogue (sorry, I have no time for a better market analysis). The best thing would be to find something similar, but with 2 canvas.

comment Improvising Heavy Rain Protection for a Backpack
Sorry, but your answer is full of marketing names for rather trivial things. Maybe you could edit a bit?

comment Why do many climbers appear to not trust their belay loops?
@WedaPashi, exactly. But now you can trust manuals from Petzl/BD/etc, which allow and encourge using belay loop without additional backup.

@PaulIrofti, consider asking on Physical Fitness SE (fitness.stackexchange.com), it's wisited by more runners, and you question almost doesn't concern Outdoors at all.

comment For fording cold rivers, is there any special clothing (as opposed to makeshift bags or tightly connected raintrousers) to stay dry and warm?
@gerrit, fording glacier rivers is cold, but you are staying in the water for 1 minute, and feet take only a small percent of body surface. Never heard of people getting injuries from hypothermia when fording (if they are not washed away). To make it more comfortable, you can add a plastic bag between a sock and a sandal, this will hold water for a while.
