Agree with Stercutus, was kind of sucky.

Re: Recommendation for lightweight breatheable rainjacket

I just filled out the marmot warranty form on their support page and sent the item back as instructed.
Fyi I've done this for several other clothing products such as slidbelts belt, Brooks sneakers, etc whenevr the item failed and the OEM always seems to be fair with the claim.

Re: Recommendation for lightweight breatheable rainjacket

Another vote for Marmot precip. FYI I had a zipper malfunction on my first after like 5 years of heavy use. Marmot replaced entire jacket free of charge.

Pretty f'ing cool.
I remember when we were kids we used old school tin can pull tabs tied above the hook to catch snappers. Actually anything shiny worked on those dum ass fish.

Re: Breachpen - High Temp Cutting/Welding

Cool but couple important question. How long does it take to cut chain if you don't have someone putting a bunch of tension on it?
I couldn't get the audio. Did the mention what grade steel chain it was?

Re: "The Rain" on Netflix

Watched three episodes with my teen daughter. She and I like it so far.
Agree there's predictability and some general plot nonsense. But it has great cinematography and good production/sets.

Benadryl - for bee stings or loud noises Curlix wrap and some gauze bandages One of those socks the dryer didn't eat Muzzle (not really a first aid item - but might be necessary to render aid) Tweezers or tick tool Pliers (think fishing hook) Hydrogen peroxide (to cause vomit - NOT wound cleansing)...

Great topic. Assuming you can not quickly and inexpensively replace the failed electronic device, its nice being able to repair the most common failure modes. Having had repaired high end consumer audio and video equipment for 7 years in the way back when: number one failure mode for majority of the...
