I'm looking for a outdoorsy (think balsam fir, cedar, and juniper, etc) natural body wash or soap that isn't going to break the bank (<$10) and moisturizes skin. The issue that I have with many is…Continue

"Fleece is warm, likely warmer than flannel.  I get very cold at night, so I've done both.  Either is fine, but I'm more likely to want fleece on the coldest nights. When you wash them, no need to bother with a dryer; just hang…"

"I find that fleece doesn't breathe as well so you sweat more. Also, after a few washes fleece loses its soft texture. Also I think if I had to pick between natural and synthetic I'd prefer natural."

"Go to the fabric section of a store (Wal-mart, Hobby Lobby, etc) and feel the flannel they have in bolts.  That stuff will be much thicker than a run of the mill pair.  Fleece is good, but generates a lot of static. (I remember as a kid…"

Fleece vs Flannel Pajama/Lounge Pants?

This winter froze me to the bone and I am looking to upgrade my pajama pants from the thin cotton ones I have now. I see that flannel pants are often recommended here, but I have been reading that fleece pants are generally warmer (I generally don't sweat at night; quite the opposite in fact) and many are just glorified plaid cotton pants.So, is there something wrong with fleece lounge pants and if so, how do you distinguish between plaid junk and decent flannel?See More

Outdoorsy/Nature Body Washes

I'm looking for a outdoorsy (think balsam fir, cedar, and juniper, etc) natural body wash or soap that isn't going to break the bank (<$10) and moisturizes skin. The issue that I have with many is that that they still smell chemically despite being advertised as "naturey" (see Old Spice Denali, for example).  Any suggestions?  Thanks.See More

When I was growing up, casual nudity in the locker room and showers was common.  I don't remember any guy being shy when nude around other guys, and we all saw that everybody was about the same "down there."But in today's world, casual nudity in the locker room and showers is becoming more and more rare.  And due to easily-viewed porn, many/most guys feel inadequate "down there," and both sexes gossip and bully guys outside the locker room.I feel sorry for these younger guys.  But with the…See More
