Backpacking background: I have been backpacking for six years mostly on long weekends in Southern California with one or two 5-day trips per year in the Sierras. My total daypack weight is usually 15 lb (7 kg) and my total backpack weight is usually 26-30 lb (13-14 kg) depending on the need for a bear canister. I converted to a tarp, bivy and quilt sleeping system this summer. I have experienced all night rain, hail, lightening, heavy winds, camping in snow, but mostly fair weather.
I will be backpacking most weekends in Big Bear area and Joshua Tree, California during the entire testing period. I have many trips planned, so I will have no problem meeting the minimum requirements. The weather is just starting to turn cool which makes me anxious for the snow to fall. I already have one snow camp trip planned and am in the process of planning more.
I wear sunscreen on my face every day when I am outdoors. I will test the consistency, feel, effectiveness of protecting against sunburn. The organic ingredients should not create any allergic reaction and I will be watching for this.
