Re: Pillow woes
I've tried almost as many combinations as you, with similar results. This is what works for me as a side sleeper: A foundation using a Thermarest Seat, 3 oz. A REI Travel Pillow on top, 4.9...

Re: Boiling 8 oz. 2X vs. 16 oz. 1X
Good discussion. I ran some tests. Before I go into the results, I spoke to a mechanical engineer, and his feeling was that as long as the surface area and energy was the same, the difference b...

Time for an UL Pack?
Been tweaking my summer list, got the base weight down to a hair under 15 lbs. (from 18, I think). I then noticed that 3 lbs. 2 oz. of that is my Gregory Z Pack! So swapping that for a nifty UL...

Re: boil times..

Re: Ultra light flashlights
I bought the Mongoose on sale on a whim. Detached from that gnarly, magnetic, flexible attachment, the head weighs 1 oz. on my scale. I like the idea of separate colored LEDs instead of colored...

Re: FYI: SteriPEN batteries
I have AW's 3.7V RCR123As, which come off the charger at about 4.2V, but don't stay at that voltage for long. After enough load, they typically drop down to 3.8 or 3.7 volts. I also hav...
