Re: Help with titanium pots
I tried the nesting 1.3 and 0.9l evernew pots for 2 adults and 2 kids, and I ended up switching to the 1.9l evernew pot later - for the convenience of a single pot, and to get a bit of extra room t...

Ultralight Tubing
I think, but I'm not sure, that the "standard" water filter tubing is 1/4" inner diameter with 1/16" wall thickness. For my Sawyer gravity setup, I used food safe 3/16&qu...

What if you can't push the PLB button?
I bought the Inreach SE this summer. I really like it. Even with the superior specs, I did not think the ResQlink made the most sense for solo hiking. Seems to me, if you are real trouble, y...
