Under the Christmas Tree

As Christmas approaches, it's perfect time to give a few goodies that will help out on the trail.  A nice new lightweight sleeping bag?  Ultralight pack?  

One of the challenges of giving gifts to serious backpackers is that we know exactly what we want, and we also have a very good idea of what we DON'T want.  No heavy stuff.  No cotton.  Nothing that we don't already own, because if we wanted/needed it, we would have bought it.  

But a better quality and lighter weight version of something we already have?  That's a good idea.  

Of course, it's a little late for us to make suggestions now--we're pretty sure our gifts have already been purchased.  But for those of you who are shopping for a friend...

It's never too late for good equipment!
