Re: has anyone tested the new Primus winter gas?
I am curious as to the % of propane and iso-butane, and if they might have beefed up the canister strength to handle perhaps a higher percentage of propane (so a heavier cartridge?). Jim, 20/80 ...

re: sleeping gear for the jungle
I haven't been to Panama, but close--Costa Rica's Osa peninsula. That Panama humidity is something to behold. I started out using a 200 weight fleece bag, which was far too warm at 75*F. It...

re: trashed exped synmat
I have no idea what the inside of that Synmat looks like, but the MYOG in me thinks that the strong gossamer-like shell material might make a sweet, light stuff sack. On the other hand, if the insu...

Re: Sriracha
Thanks to Kate for the link. I just ordered 200 of the packets, but the cheapest shipping was UPS ground at over $15, So it came out to 14 cents/packet. Still not bad, and I'll have a whole bun...

Re: MSR Windboiler
I appreciate the detailed evaluation you are doing with the Windboiler, Jim. This stove looks pretty good overall. As an aside, I think I had mentioned that we were able to borrow a Windboiler ...

Re: Canted vs. vertical canister
I see, Roger, so we're stuck with wax-gunk no matter what. Shouldn't dirt be rare or non-existant with quality canisters? And to get the last bit of fuel out of it, we need to set the inver...

Re: Minimum temperature for inverted canister stove
I can't match Stephen's temperature, but this morning I tested my Windpro II and my Caffin stove on the patio at a bracing +4* F (no wind), and both stoves functioned quite well. Not as eff...

I agree that the Akto is a very strong and high quality 4-season solo tent. But I must add an anecdote to illustrate the what I feel is the tent's main weakness. In early October of '06 we wer...
