comment Backcountry Skiing Bindings compatible with soft boots
This answer basically covers it. From own experience I can add, that touring boots in walking mode are comfortable enough to walk the one or other hour uphill with your skis attached to the backpack of there's not enough snow down in the valley to start skiing right there.

comment How do I connect to an autobelay with a Whillan's harness?
This looks a bit ... err... oldschool, doesn't it? I'm not sure whether I would hang my life on such a piece of equipment.

comment Does a Bear Archery bow quiver influence my Grizzly?
Also, from a physicists point of view, you are attaching a weight that is not symmetric with respect to the bow's vertical symmetry axis. This will shift the center of gravity sideways, and will give the bow a tendency to tip to one side. Hence, you will not only have to compensate for the extra weight but also for this torque trying to tip your bow sideways.

comment How to walk on wet, slightly rotten wood?
Basically the problem is the same as walking on ice, so the answers given in outdoors.stackexchange.com/questions/8974/… might apply here as well.
