comment What can be safely trimmed on a backpack
Sticking with strap-trimming makes sense to me - and when you say "notoriously difficult to repair," add to that the probability that the pack would fail when you're deep in the woods, and not at home where it would be convenient. You do carry duct tape right? I carry some wrapped around one of my water bottles for emergency repairs.

comment How to seam seal Tyvek?
I used GE's Silicone Gel II to seal seams on my RayWay tarp, and it works great. I have no idea if it would stick to Tyvek or not, but it seems like it would.

comment Why don't we apply the principles of layering when it comes to pants?
They're less sensitive, and you don't have organs there. Keeping your core warm is the top priority of your body's response to cold. Also, if you're hiking, your legs are staying plenty warm just from the heat of the working muscles.

+1 I had no idea that a candle lantern could add that much heat. Good tip.
