Laces, I hate round laces unless they are lumpy.

Keen laces are "lumpy" and those lumps seem to catch and hold, keeping your knot from coming loose.

Since the IP I've discovered parachute cord to be perfectly adequate for boot laces.  Durable and dirt cheap, it's now my lacing system of choice.  Still seeking an improved coffee cup system.

Are you saying a red cup isnít enough?   How could that be?   

I did find an insulated, cheap, fairly light cup with a lid at, I think at Walmart.   The lid has an opening (for drinking out of) that can easily be closed, making it useable WHILE hiking.   Canít beat that. And did I say that it was red. 

Yesterday we actually made real drip coffee on the trail.   It was awesome.
