Answer A: What makes pants "tactical"?
Marketing departments. No, seriously. There's no standard for what constitutes "tactical" - they all tend to be broadly the same kind of thing (heavy duty, designed for outdoors wear, cargo pockets, etc) - but in the end, the people who decide to name them "tactical" are the people with Marketing ...

Comment Post #276270 We'll get a help article written for it, @JamesJenkins - the technical manual isn't exactly the ideal user guide :)

Answer A: How to refine search for multiple words?
The technical details of how search works are in the MySQL manual, which includes a full list of operators. The short version: we use a MySQL FULLTEXT index for search, which gets us some useful things for free. How you express your search depends on exactly what you're searching for. You could se...

Answer A: Gear Recommendations
There's no tooling for migrating between categories yet (it's on the list), but if you give me a list of post IDs I can mass-migrate things for you.

Answer A: In the United States, how steep can a handicap-accessible trail be?
I did some digging, and found an ADA guidelines document from the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation. Look at page 3, which details all the technical requirements. It is from 2007, so take it with a pinch of salt. Bear in mind always that these are guidelines, not code or law. Ba...

Answer A: Merge imported and new user accounts.
> I don't know much about web software, but these multiple accounts should be merged somehow. The one I deliberately created here should be the "real" account. Even better, there should be something that allows the merge when you first sign up here. There is, and there has been from the start. Go ...

Answer A: Do we want to know the visits per page?
Right now, I'd say not. Counting views is a bit of a pain behind the scenes, and showing it doesn't gain us much - and might just reveal that most posts have none at all or very few. If there's specific posts that someone wants to know about, we have in-house analytics running and can pull stats f...

Answer A: How to find a safe portable 1500 watt heater
If you're worried about fan heaters because they all seem to have a poor safety record... that wouldn't be entirely unjustified. There do exist reputable models that won't leave small plastic puddles on your floor, of course, but it can be difficult to separate the good, the bad, and the fire risk. ...

Answer A: Boat Septic Pump Out?
The answer to this almost certainly depends to some extent on where in the world you are, but the general idea will be similar anywhere you go. There are, broadly, two types of heads aboard a boat, and what type you get often depends where you're intending to go. The first is a permanent tank type...

Answer A: When hiking up a steep hill without a trail, how do you determine the angle to switch back and forth?
It's... basically completely up to you. As with lots of things, it's about striking a balance - you can walk directly uphill if you like and it'll make for a shorter route, but it'll be hard going. You can also walk exactly following the countours of the hill - easy going, but you're not going to ...

Comment Post #74786 @Sigma heat-sealed ends are the industry standard way of cutting ropes to length - as long as you make a reasonably quick cut at high temperature, your seal will remain reasonably flexible, so you don't get any cracking within the lifetime of the rope.

Answer A: How to cut and seal backpack straps?
I'll echo what Sigma has said: the best way to do this is heat, by one application or another. If you know someone who climbs or otherwise works with ropes, talk to them - they may well know of some good ways to cut ropes cleanly that would work on webbing too. I work for an outdoors adventure com...

Answer A: How do I protect necessary glasses while kayaking or rafting?
The answer to this depends fairly heavily on the specifics of what, exactly, you're doing. "Kayaking" can mean anything from play boats in a pool to whitewater and hydraulic entrapment risks. Whitewater rafting is a little more specific in that it necessarily involves whitewater, but there's still a ...
