Doxycycline prophylaxis
So if I find a black-legged tick feeding on me (yes we have them here on Vancouver Island) then why wouldn't I just self-medicate with Doxycycline?? Seems like the prudent thing to do. Then go ...

First Ascent BC-200
On Monday of this week the new First Ascent BC-200 showed up on their website. Specs look awesome, a soft and quiet tri-laminate with 20K/20K and less than 11 oz. Seems to beat the Westcomb Specter...

Floor will leak
A great little tent for sure. One big weakness is the 1200mm waterproofness rating on the floor. Over the years we have seen tent floors drop from 3000+ down to 1800 and now a miserly 1200. I would...

Re: West Coast Trail Gear Questions
I recommend a light GoreTex boot with shorty gaitors made of Schoeller type soft-shell fabric. You just need to keep the mud (or watery mud) out of the boot-tops. Some people (very few) do use runn...

Mountain Equipment Co-op (Canada)

Big Agnes Insulated Air Core Pad

Petzl e+LITE
This light is real beauty. At one ounce even, it's kinda like having a one pound sleeping bag. This is clearly the Western Mountaineering Hilite of headlights. Not perfect, but perfectly good and ...

I'm with you Brett, I always carry some good wine in my Atmos 50, usually a Fetzer Zinfandel. I also carry some single malt scotch in case the temps go lower than my bag rating. Anyway, the Atm...
