MSR Denali Tails experiences
Jim: While I mostly use mine without the tails, as I live in a subarctic semi-desert, we have had a bunch of Pacific Lows sweep through, and lots of deep new snow, about 60cm in total depth, in the...

T-rest field trial at -40C/-40F
Donna: I am reluctant to lose a night's sleep in a field trial of gear, so I usually just try to do an outside nap; for me -40C or -40F requires 2 full-foam (no coring out) foam T-rests, LE (5c...

good for you for experimenting at home!
Michael: For -18C, if it were me with my popsicle metabolism, I would be using a full-length, more-or-less-solid foam, Thermarest LE, on top of an Evazote 20mm foam pad. I would be using a -5C down...

Evazote tops blue CCF for durability + low temperature use
All: I have and use both, mostly as 'sitz' pads in camp or on day hikes, also Evazote as a full-winter pad under a Thermarest LE. All of my foamies come to me used, some with much use, a...

Pink Prolite versus (gasp!) T-rest LE
All: I have a 2008 women's tall Prolite, bought mostly for the weight savings and considerably smaller deflated size. I too bought it because it had the same R-factor (insulation) as the LE. Bu...

stuff sacs as fine glacial gravel bar 'sandbags'
It may just be me, but in the Yukon I spend a fair amount of time camping on gravel bars on the river, and in abandonned gravel pits along the Alaska highway bike camping. Both places are great as...

Arc FlashLight Arc AAA
In the Northern Canada this is a superb everyday carry light, as it is as bright as a conventionally-bulbed 2AA Maglite, lasts longer, and is waterproof to at least 3M and much lighter! I got mine ...

Trail Designs and Titanium Goat Ti-Tri
Hi all! I bought the Ti-Tri to use for long-range bike touring + hiking to replace a much-heavier MSR Whisperlight with the 350ml bottle, in all but full-winter situations. I managed to melt snow a...
