    Thanks for the heads up on the camping article. Tradtional winter camping’s popularity has been making slow, but steady progress over the past decade or more. Minnesota and Wisconsin have numerous small firms turning out gear and clothing, several of which were mentioned in the article. Traditional gear is heavier, but a lot more comfortable, especially once in camp at the end of a day. My own kit is a mixed bag of old and new, eventually I’ll go all the way. The modern bible of this is The Snow Walkers Companion.

    The MJ camping article was excellent. I looked up “Empire Canvas Works” referenced in the article and they have some unbelievable looking gear (I’m digging the coats big time!).

    Thanks Mr. Williams for making us aware of this Nigel Cabourn interview. Really enjoyed
    listening to him speak so passionately about his garments. More brands should be fronted
    with a man of this caliber. Down right admirable.
