Optimus
Hmmmm. My hesitation about the Crux and the Crux Lite is that so many reviews on the Internet consistently mention the flame adjustability as a real PIA. Too easy to put the stove out when you are ...

My Ghost pack is even older than the brown ones. It's sea-green and black with gold trim. Handsome. The scentless compactor bags I'm currently using are Springfield brand, 20-gallon. The...

Sprays
Thanks for helpful comments. In the past I used a spray to waterproof my raingear. While I was at it, I would spray my pack for good measure. It's not meant to be a waterproof pack, although...

Waterproof my pack?
Hi, I just waterproofed my raingear, using first Nikwax Tech Wash, then Revivex Wash-in Water Proofing, followed by drying everything in my clothes dryer at medium heat (approximating 140 degree...

your skill level?
My recommended route would depend on your skill/navigation level doing cross-country. And your general interest in x-country. A shuttle runs all up and down that valley. That means you can start...

Prana Bliss Capris/Pants
These capris/pants are not *quite* full-length; and they have no zippered pockets. In spite of that, I rate them a "5" for backpacking, simply because they are unparalleled in comfort/str...

This is the one area where I've added weight to my pack. I used to be able to sleep on just closed-cell foam; but my back can't take it anymore. This POE pad is ridiculously comfortable in ...

These photons are cute little guys, but they are best left on your keychain at home, for occasional use. I've tried to change the battery on two of these photons. On the first one, I just gave ...
