comment How do I properly use the cinch-straps that came with my daypack?
@Ryley: Their suggestion is to adjust the lacing to your content. On their video they briefly show two different options. I was surprise they didn't have instructions on their website. Perhaps a generic question on the topic would generate more interesting answers.

comment Washing dishes with seawater or freshwater?
Regarding dishwashing (see original question), if I had to guess based on my small sample of personal observations, I would bet on the 'norm' being untreated water for dishwashing. ;)

comment Washing dishes with seawater or freshwater?
The question states all things being equal. Today I had the opportunity to ask biology professor the question. Of the top of his head, he would favor the sea water because of a (presumably) lower likelihood of encountering human pathogens. I understand that the salinity of the water does not prevent growth of all (or any) pathogens. However I would hypothesize that it have an influence on some relevant pathogens listed in the answer. I would be interested if somebody could shed some light on this aspect of the question with possibly data or scientific references.

comment What does “expedition-weight” mean with regard to clothing?
Yay for buzzwords :-) If you are suggested to buy "expedition-weight" gear items I would not limit myself to buying items that are described as such. Consider that you will likely be colder when you (or the expedition) stops.

comment Washing dishes with seawater or freshwater?
Does seawater generally has more harmful organisms than stream water? For example, is it not less likely to have giardia in seawater compared to lake or stream water?

A worded the question so that it doesn't imply whether you treat the water you drink. I believe what you pointed out would be a good question on its own.
