Snow melt
I've been immersed in snow melt. But just to dunk in. Never had to stay in long enough to swim - and wouldn't look forward to having to do that! One thing I hadn't considered before thi...

Swim Crossing techniques/clothing
After talking with Justin Lichter, Kevin Sawchuk and Ryan Jordan about the joys of cold water swimming, I gave it a try a few weeks ago. I hiked half a mile to a narrow reservoir, swam about 50 yds...

Target

Columbia zip offs
I've beat a pair of Columbia zip offs to death - and I still haven't found anything I like better. The fabric on mine is quite light - like the REI pants - but is holding up to lots of thor...

silcone muffin cups
Double as hot pads - great idea! I didn't know they came ruffle-less - I'll be on the lookout for some. Cool!

silcone muffin cups
I just heard about these from Mike C! Is there any problem cleaning them in the field so they can be reused on another night? (Wondering about the folds.)

Coughlan's LED Clip-on Headlight
The Coughlan’s LED Clip-on Headlight is light weight, inexpensive and bright enough for around camp chores. The red filter is a nice feature to save night vision. I gave it a 3 of 5 because it was fru...

Inov8 Terroc 330 - Men's

Tilley LT5
Well I thought the LT5 was perfect until Ryan suggested it would be even better if it was lighter. But of course! And it's stylish too - at least we Tilley wearers think so. And Ryan, just slip on yo...
