Re: [at-l] Re: Tuckerizing the pack
Fine. Just as I open my Campmor catalog to the "Camp Tableware"
section (page 226, to be precise), I see the regular old Sierra Cup
holding 8 oz. for 4.5 oz. carry weight, versus the "GSI Outdoors"
brand lexan 12 oz. with a carry weight of 3 oz. Hmmm. Gain 50% in
capacity, lose 33% in carry weight, all for the princly sum of $2.70
plus shipping. Hmmmmmm. "Tuckerizing" is obviously NOT a four letter

I was all excited when Galyans started stocking lexan cups, till I
bought one, brought it home and weighed it, and found it heavier than
the metal Sierra Cup that went GA->ME with me in '79. Dang! Another
equipment acquisition gone wrong.
