Goretex
Got my first piece of goretex in 1978. Still have an Early WInters bivy that works well from 1979. Truth is however, sooner or later most goretex seems to fail. My one warranty issue was with a ...

winter tent...
Heath, I hope this finds you well. I've more than passing experience with sleeping out in the backcountry winter. While double-wall bug-net tents like the Copper Spur UL1 will work (I have o...

Alladin?
How does the GSI compare to holding heat like the ubiquitous Alladin 12oz Plastic Mug (you know, the one every truck stop in America carries)? Granted, they're heavy (5oz's), but man the...

eyedropper

Re: A wick around the stem improves priming
I got my Svea 123 in May of 1975... it's still going strong! I just douse the spirit cup with fuel and light her up. I've used it at -20*F and 100+*F and it's always worked, and...

Jetboil Blues and Olicamp...
Jim, agreed mostly... however, the Mini Mo is directed at those, like my wife's girlfriend who is a foodie and chef par-excellence, that want more pot room and the ability to simmer... I actual...
