New Zealand Trip Report
One of my favourite areas to hike in is in the north part of the South Island of New Zealand. The weather isn’t as bad as the areas further south and there are some great passes and mountains to ...

I just bought this bivy and love it. It is superior to the BPL bivy which I also own because the bug netting gives you a much less claustrophobic environment and you can add the top if you need ...

Performance comparisons with the Contrail?
If you have adjustable trekking poles and get the sil nylon version, it seems this would turn the Sublite into a highly recommended shelter. Is that right? Some performance comparisons with the ...

No groundsheet required
I have never used a ground sheet with my heavily used Cloudburst or any of my sil nylon based bivies. The silnylon floor sits directly on top of the ground with no problems. So there goes another 3oz.

Tarp size
The current dimensions are 6.5 X 5 X 8.75 feet but I seem to remember the tarp being produced in different dimensions in the past. I think it used to be shorter and wider. Can you confirm the di...

It won’t fall down, it withstands high wind but there are too many usability issues with this tent to make it easy to use. Perhaps 10 years ago these tents were ahead of their time. Now they are n...
