> THE LIGHTWEIGHT TILLEY HATEDIT: The website refers to this as the Lighterweight LT3. Please edit the
title to reflect this. In addition, because Tilley makes so many styles of
hats, please refer to your hat as the LT3 throughout your report as opposed
to "the Tilley". You wouldn't refer to the MSR instead of the Whisperlite
International if doing a stove report.

understand what you're talking about.

it's 103 words, that's still 3 words over the limit. Please trim it down a
bit. In addition, we really need information on whether you tent, tarp,
bivy, or hammock; and can you elaborate a bit on lightweight vs. ultralight
vs. heavy packs. I'm sure gram weenie's would like to know an average amount
of weight you carry in a pack.

how steep, where geographically, etc.
