Re: Help me get rid of my poles...
I've recently reverted to poleless hiking and can't say I miss trekking poles too much. In the past, I relied on found sticks, fibraplex poles or flexible aluminum Easton poles to set up my silshe...

Re: TNF Solo 12
I like the Montbell Diamond, 2.5 lb. carry weight. See the review on this site. My experience and that of the reviewer are very similar except that he found limited head space and I did not. The fa...

Re: How waterproof are your Gore-Tex boots/shoes?
Will, I haven't had much luck with w/b membranes in boots. They've been fine for occasional rain or stream crossings but when it's been wet all day, the boots get wet inside and out and take ...

Re: Looking for a Rainbow Stuffsack
I don't have a Rainbow but have used a Virga 2 (with strut) for a while. The strut is pretty easy to pop in and out once you get used to it. The long, narrow stuff sack the tent came with is inconv...

Re: Windscreen
Thanks for the feedback, Neil. I may tighten up the windscreen and ditch the reflector, at least for cooler weather. In cold weather, say below the mid-twenties, I carry the effective, but much hea...

Re: Re: Re: Canister stoves

Re: What is your "luxury" item?
A few years ago I was a tarp-sleeping, Mt. Washington pad-carrying zealot. I've backslid a bit since those days. Last night I slept on a InsulMat MaxThermo 3/4 for the first time and I think I've ...

Montbell U.L.AlpineBurrow Bag #3 Long
Nice review, Mitchell. After our discussion here about this bag back in April, I had a serious hankering after this bag. I really had no need of another bag and managed to resist until the Memorial ...

Rocky Rocky GTX Socks
Mine fit well. Size 10 slips right over a thin pair of wool socks and my size 9.5 feet. They are comfortable inside my trail runners and do what they claim to do--keep my feet warm and dry in wet, col...

This is the book I recommend to friends and folks I meet on the trail who are interested in going lighter. It's fun, unpretentious, and lays out the basic ideas in ways that are easy to understand. Do...
