Re: Re: and more!
I'm betting the staff is for personal bear defense, because obviously he can't kick them, seeing as he used sandals the whole time! You couldn't pay me to hike the PCT in sandals, but ...

Re: ULA Circut or SMD Comet
While I own and really like a SMD Comet, (I used it for a thru-hike of the Tahoe Rim Trail this summer), it sounds like you are happy with the pack you have. The weight difference between the two ...

Re: clarifying the clarifications
With all due respect, I disagree that a review should only contain objective data, a fact sheet could effectively accomplish the same thing - that's not a review. A review is necessarily sub...

The color of appetite
In looking at buying an Orikaso bowl and mug, I was initially drawn towards green and away from orange, but then I thought about food in that color. Now I know for many of you, your appetite can...

Backpack attatchment
Does anybody have a link for directions to attach an umbrella to a backpack, freeing up ones hands for using trekking poles? I remember someone talking about doing that at the PCT kickoff a coup...

I was part of a group thru-hike of the Tahoe Rim Trail this summer, and we followed a hike 50 rest 10 regiment. When I hike on my own, I sometimes have a hard time pacing myself, going too hard ...

Only other
The only comparable bivys out there are from BMW (on this site), which seem to rarely be in stock, from Oware, which I'm afraid I know little about, and Titanium Goat, which has totally re-vamp...

I have used this pack a total of 17 days this summer, including 15 on a thru-hike of the Tahoe Rim Trail. The pack volume and design suit my needs perfectly for carrying up to 5 days worth of food,...

This review is for the large bivy with the old-style bug headnet (a mesh headnet bag sewn across the chest, pulled over the head, under the bivy). This is the best value hands down in water resista...

Mountain Hardwear Phantom 32 F, 800 down
The phantom 32 was my first light-weight item, and is still my favorite. Loft is great, the hood fits great, and there is enough room for me to add a down jacket or vest. The one downside is the .85 ...

Golite Den 2
Similar to tarptent designs, but no vestibule and made out of Golite's heavy-duty silnylon, so it weighs a little more (3.5 lbs). I have used it in Tahoe National Forest where it was used for me and a...
