Ursack
As much as we all would like the Ursack to pass the tests, until recently the bears shredded them. The Garcia cans are a pain but they work and most other systems don't. I hope that they really ha...

Wild Things
Let me put in a good word for Wild Things. Their gear is usualy lightweight but not "ultra" lightweight. The giveback is that their gear is usually bulletproof. I have several pieces of their st...

GoLite Cave 2

Patagonia Micro Puff Pullover
I have too many jackets. Down. Synthetic. Heavy. Light. But the jacket that winds up in my pack more than any other is the MicroPuff. I have just returned from a river trip in the Four Corners area...

Nunatak SkahaPlus
Skaha Plus is well-made, warm and light. It's a great building block for a layering and/or sleeping system. I wore it for the first time in the Eastern Sierras with temps in the high 20s and was toast...

PossumDown Glove Liner Gloves
I really like these gloves (and the related hat). They are warm, light and soft. That's the good news. The bad news is that they are fairly delicate and are prone to shrink a lot if they are put in th...
