I can vouch for NW Alpine. I own a Black Spider Hoody and an Eyebright jacket and have tried on the Belay. All are exceptionally well-made products. Bill, the founder, is a really great guy as well.

Surefire CR123s
We use them a lot at work (in camera flashes) and buy them in bulk on Amazon, the Surefire brand is our preference. Even if you can find them in a store, they're often 5+ bucks a pop—$1.75 ea...

Re: Never, EVER...
Haha, what? Why on Earth shouldn't she (or anyone else speed hiking/going for FKTs) try to get publicity for it? Anish et. al. are doing amazing things and deserve recognition for it—not to m...
