    Just keep in mind ExOfficio's were TMB approved until scrotums started exploding.

    I just made that up. Actually the scrotums slowly but uncontrollably melted

    I’m out here doing the lords work (trying a lot of different brands) and I can’t draw any conclusions yet. However, I will go ahead and say the Patagonia ones I bought in March (2 pair) have both failed in less than 3 months. Not just the most disappointing Patagonia product I’ve ever tried, but maybe the biggest dud of the non-dollar store purchases I’ve made in many years. They feel great but didn’t last a dozen washes before large holes started developing at all the seams.

    My iPad has been one of the best tech purchases I ever made. Thing is like 7 years old at this point and I don't have any space on it any longer but I don't care. It takes all my work conference calls, mainboards, youtubes, surfs, frequently has a game on my TV does not, etc...... It's still like day one, battery is fine, it's responsive, honestly don't have one complaint about it. The memory piece is on me and honestly it's not a show stopper and when it does become an issue for me, based on my return, I have no problem handing them $ for another.

    Not sure what specific apps or sites you need to log into for work but I'd seriously consider one. I paid no more than 400 for mine, use it five hours a day and it performs identical to when I took it out of the box. I've been through at least 5 laptops since I bought this.

    That’s unfortunate. Did you dry them? I’ve probably got 10 pairs of Patagonia capilene boxers, some of which are 10-12 years old, and a few of them are just starting to unravel in the crotch seam.

    These were the Essential line (95% TENCEL™ lyocell/5% spandex). I knew it was a compromise in their line, but I was looking for something that wouldn’t break the bank that was still gonna last. These did not. Air dry on low with other socks and boxer briefs that still look new. Most surprising so far have been the Saxx. I viewed the whole concept as a gimmick but the material itself is holding up really well. I’m not sure if the whole pouch thing is necessarily an improvement.

    Need a full size mattress, something cheap but decent -- it's going to be in a rental unit. Would like to keep it around $500.

    Is a full size mattress too small for 2 adults? It's going in a really tight space, and I'm not sure if a queen will fit.

    I'm sure I've slept with someone else in a full size bed before, but can't recall.

    if you want to appease a variety of travelers, then go queen.

    I personally am okay with it, but my wife prefers queens and we are relatively normal sized.

    You're going to deter some renters but if this is the tiny place up in the Cascades the people that are going to be renting probably are less likely to be deterred than most renters.

    My girlfriend's bed is a full. Width-wise it's fine, we even have the 40 lb dog in there sometimes. But the length isn't great for anyone 6+ feet (me) especially if they sleep on their stomach (sometimes me). So I usually have to scrunch up and side sleep or just deal with my feet hanging off the bed.

    If you’re renting a cabin in North Cascades you’re more than likely ok with less than optimal sleeping arrangements as most people will be somewhat outdoorsy.

    Btw since we are weighing in on sleeping arrangements I’m 6’3” 230 and my wife is 5’3” 110 and we do fine in a queen that usually has a cat or two in it as well
