The More You Know

There's some really good knowledge if you dig deep into the REI site. Take the time to read and process these articles, and I'll bet that you will understand more than 99% of people that purchase gear.

Durable Water Repellent (DWR) Care
Rainwear: How It Works

There are also some nice basic gear checklists to print out for day hiking, backpacking, backcountry snowboarding, paddling, cycling, etc.

Thanks for the reminder! I'm leaving for a trip next week. I sealed the seams on my Tenshi over the weekend... but my shell is a few years old and needs to be re-treated with DWR. :)
