Re: Western Mountaineering Caribou Alternatives
The Terralite is an interesting concept. I know WM had been selling it in Europe under a different name for over a decade before they introduced it to the US. It's within a couple of oz of the ...

Re: FYI on 3/19/'15
Prices for Hilleberg on Campsaver are not discounted. That would be a breach of the distributor agreement. Similarly, Hilleberg is excluded from their 20% off sale.
