Second new tent body
It looks like they sent hubba hubba poles and fly with a mutha hubba tent body the first time. I just got email confirmation that they shipped out a new hubba hubba tent body. So, there was a l...

Update... a hiccup in the process
A brand new tent showed up today. I wondered what tent they would substitute for my Fling if replacing it. What they sent was in a bag labelled Hubba Hubba, and the poles did seem to be for a Hub...

REI Flash 45
Yeah, I love mine. It works great for trips where I can either use my BV450 or leave the bear canister home. I find it super comfy and about the right size for most of my trips.

Inexpensive is OK, but I'd avoid rods that were designed for other purposes and sold as tenkara rods. Some of the rods on ebay are okay and some are complete crap. By the way the Fountainhe...

I went ahead and returned the Fling. I am out $13 postage at worst. At best they will replace it. FWIW, they did finally reply to my original email. It seemed like a long delay, but at least th...

Smells and stains
I personally would be much more worried about degrading the fabric with exposure to sunscreen or insect repellent than with smells or stains. Sunscreen and insect repellent are really death to a l...

Thermarest Neo-Air
I love my NeoAir (size regular). It is light, comfy, and packs small. I agree that for the price a patch kit should be included, but I don't miss the stuff sack. I have been using a ziploc ba...
