Hi, heading out on the AT in March with my NX-250. I've spent many nights with my trail runners in one of the pockets, but never below freezing.
My question: what do you do with wet shoes when temps are expected to go below freezing? Bag them, and put them in a pocket? Does enough heat bleed thru to keep them from freezing? How about your wet clothes from hiking-same thing?
I love the storage pockets, but have not thought out this particular situation.
