Thanks everyone for their input. I ordered a couple pairs from REI. Am I sensing a market opening here? Anyone good at sewing? We could use some tall clothing and tents.

No prob
I've used my snow peak gigapower from 6,000 feet hunting, to 9,000 on Mt. Reba. Had some wind issues on Mt. Reba, bought the windscreen, solved that issue.

Looking for people with experience with these packs. Not sure which one to get. I am 6'3 and skinny, at 165lbs. I like the GoLite Pinnacle's weight, but the Nimbus Meridian seems to be far ...

Backpacking Light Ti Esbit stove
I will admit, this is my first experience with esbit, but I was not impressed at all. For being so small and compact, I wasn't expecting a 6 burner Wolf range, but it let me down. I bought it alon...

Snow Peak Titanium Double Wall Cup 300
Love this mug. Keeps my coffee or tea plenty hot. Like the previous reviewer, I too need a good cup of coffee in the field. This mug, along with my Snowpeak French Press are a perfect combination.

Great tent! Not the lightest out there, but it's one of the few for us tall guys! I'm almost 6'4 and can sit up with plenty of head room. Lying down also plenty of room for tall bags and p...

A little expensive for what you get. This is a nice lightweight pad, does not take up to much room in the pack. I also bought the compression sack made for the ProLite 3 Regular, which is a nice addit...
