Legendary alpinists look at weight
I wish I remember the climber/alpinist who described his perfect sleeping bag, but basically it was that he and his partner traveled fast and light in traditional aid climbing, his vision of the pe...

Going to have to pass, then. Curse my 30" waist!

What's the minimum belt circumference? My existing Jam 50 is a Medium and it is 'just' barely able to cinch my hips under load. Troubles of a mesomorph...

WTB: Used GOLITE Jam 35, older-style colors
I'm looking for an older version of the GoLite Jam 35 with a more subdued color scheme. The current selection of blinding neon yellow/blue/green isn't my 'thing.' Please include s...

The Era of Lighter-Than-Air Backpacking is Here!
I *have* to imagine this (joke) idea has been tossed around after much drinking, but if you have ~$100 to waste and an 8lb backpack, then take it to the next level: lighter than air! A 30ft diame...

Re: Re: Using tyre self-sealant with inflatable air pads?
" Last, Stans has a strong ammonia component (a base) that will de-bond some tire casings. If you are going to experiment, start with Slime." Oh, yea, you're right - I forgot about...

Using tyre self-sealant with inflatable air pads?
When I mountain-bike I removed the inner tube of my tyres and use gorilla tape to replace the band covering the spoke holes. Then I fill the now-tubeless cavity with a couple tablespoons of Stan&#...

Balancing the sky and landscape for vivid colors on both
It seems whenever I take a photograph of the landscape (perhaps landscape in shade) and include the sky, either the sky turns out white and the landscape is beautiful, or the sky is vivid blue and ...

AlpineAire Vegan Mountain Chili
imagine taking an under-seasoned chili and grinding it to a paste. No good texture, just kind of gloop, and the taste wasn't exactly chili... it was just 'off' and I attribute it to the s...

AlpineAire Pepper Steak with Rice
Not bad in whole. Texture is great and pepper flavour is definitely there, but it needs more seasoning. Try adding Siracha or Tabasco to bring it up to par with expectations. Not a bad base dish.

AlpineAire Chicken Gumbo
Absolutely delicious. Rehydrates with proper texture from rice, chicken, and peppers. Looks and tastes like home-cooked meal. Just the right amount of spice to keep it interesting. Much better tha...

Hammer Chocolate Peanut Butter
Unlike its brother, Peanut Butter Chocolate, this bar is actually quite delicious. It has less protein (14g vs 30g) but is quite edible and went down quick. Would buy again.

Hammer Peanut Butter Chocolate
Being starved, on the verge of 20 hours without food, and having just come down from the mountains I suspected I'd eat anything. This particular bar was something I had to force down - the peanut...

Hammer Almond Cacao
Chewable, being neither hard nor soft, and the almond main body is lacking flavour supplemented by the bits of cacao spread throughout. Not my first choice but edible.
