Aloksak stand and zip bags

Jet- ti stove. I now have one.
I received my Jet-ti stove last week, and am impressed with it upon initial inspection. It's sturdy, (more so than my old PocketRocktet), and lighter. Performance seems to be similar (actually I fe...

Drop Stoppers Microporous Polypropylene Rainsuit
I, too, bought one of these and went for a "test drive" in a local park. The pants got shredded on blueberry bushes and scrub oak lining the trail. Back home, I dropped a clothes hanger with a coat on...
