    Starbucks instant coffee is pretty darn good, good enough for me to eschew other caffeine fix methods. Saves a bit of weight, used to pack a French press.

    I can't run double puck brakes with my Datums, this saves me weight and money, and doesn't seem to effect the stopping distance much, especially when on the skis. (?) But I HATE getting out short...
