Re: Tilley Hats
I have the LT5 and the TH4. The LT5 is lighter, more water resistant naturally, but it has a much smaller brim. I like the TH4 much better because of the wider brim and its headband is more absorbe...

Re: Aqua Mira tip
I actually use the .25 oz. Mini-Vial sold on this site to mix my AM... It works well for any size bag. I find it easy to hold the vial and fill each part from its mini-dropper.

Re: dotty and spotty
I hardly noticed at my normal setting of 1280x1024, but I do see it and more so at the 1024x768 settings. Increase your settings and forget about it. If you want to obsess about a conspiracy, c...

Guy-line Knots - What is your favorite knot for tying off guy line and why?
This is something that was prompted by a tangent from a thread in G Spot under Tarp Book. Mine is to Girth Hitch one end to the tarp and Trucker Hitch the stake end. These are easy to attach to ...

Photon Light Proton Personal Flashlight
I would give the Proton a 4 out of 5 score primarily because of its high cost ($69). It is an excellent light if you need to do any emergency signaling at night or if you need a high intensity beam fo...

Six Moon Designs Lunar Solo
I like the simplicity in the concept of the design. It is a combination of bivy sack and single wall tent with plenty of room that weighs in at 25 ounces. The bathtub floor and netting along the floor...

I have to say this is not the worst pack I ever had, but close to it. I do like the simplicity, but the straps are just killer. With 18 pounds I can carry on one shoulder and switch sides, but when ...
