Cuben Shangri-La 3?
I was wondering if anyone made anything like a cuben Shangri-La 3. The Lone Peak by Ruta Locura looks like the closest thing. I don't like the amount of stakes it takes to pitch and it looks li...

Re: Hat for hot sun...
X2 on the OR Sunrunner. I love mine. The added neck cape thing makes me look like a dork, but it works great. I also find the neck cape helps keep the wind off and helps keep mosquitos from biting ...

Anyone use the Snow Peak titanium bowl for a pot?
I just noticed this in another thread about light stove/pot combos. I was wondering if anyone had any experience using this bowl as a pot with an alcohol or esbit stove. What stove did you use, and...

Favorite huarache-type sandals

Re: Need to choose 2 tents for different circumstances. Please lend me a hand?
My experience with mids has been very good in wind and snow (Duomid and Shangri-La 3). I routinely use them in inclement weather above tree-line. Silnylon stretches a little, but I have never had a...

Re: What do you use to store your winter sleeping bag on trips?
I have the same sleeping bag and the same stuff sack. The sack is nice but HEAVY. Zpacks does custom work, and I have been thinking of getting them to make me a custom sized drybag. I will be inter...

Re: Hydration for trail runs?
I guess it depends on the run and weather, etc. Yesterday I did an 8-miler round trip with 3000' of elevation gain on the way up. It was about 91 degrees with no shade for the first mile (1000&...

Hydration for trail runs?

Re: Freestanding tent advice
I climbed the East Face of Whitney in September. I had a Golite Shangri-La 2. We camped at Upper Boy Scout Lake. It was only marginally tricky to find an appropriate site. I used loops of guyline g...

Re: Pack for 40+ pound loads
I decided to go with a McHale. I don't think it's possible to go wrong with a completely custom fitted pack from an artist like Dan. My wallet will hurt for awhile, though. Now to decide on...

Manzella Silk Weight Windstopper All-Season Glove
These have replaced my liner gloves since I discovered them. The reason? They are almost as light and totally windproof. The windproof characteristic makes them MUCH warmer than a glove of comparable ...
