comment While backpacking, should one bring hand sanitizer, soap, or both?
@zoul I have been using a biodegradable for more than one year and it has proven to be very useful. It leaves no trace at all and does not attract insects. I cannot say the same for unscented soap which proved to be irresistible to insects.

comment Running shoes for asphalt + winter conditions?
