I'll do this next time I'm using N2, which is gonna be 5-10 days from now. I'm not quite sure how best to do it, since cuben is so light you can't really throw it at the ground o...

There's probably going to be several people dropping cars off at the end and shuttling back to the start somehow. So hopefully you guys could just rent one car, drive it the end and get a lift ...

Cuben in Liquid N2
"Cuben in liquid nitrogen would be disappointing." I have access to some. Next week I'll try this. If flowers are any indication, it'll be fun.

Cargo Fly
The cargo fly is awesome, but just so darn expensive. It's tempting just to go buy one of the same Tizip Superseal zippers for ~$70 and toss it in myself. How hard can it be? :) Having to de...

I like 1" belts for frameless packs. I'm happy with 20-25 lbs without any hipbelt and I can push that upwards by about 5 lbs if I add a 1" belt. I just finished a 3 day trip with 25-3...

I own and like the Khufu, but I'd say no there isn't "decent" room for two. Most mids of this size (Khufu, DuoMid etc) are pretty tight for two. Even for one person length will be...

Mountain Laurel Designs Cuben DuoMid
The DuoMid is the best shelter for solo hikers. Don't be misled by the "Duo" in its name - you could cram two hikers in here but it's poorly suited for that (ie. no vestibule space, ...

Spark-Lite Fire Starter (Survival Gear - BPL Gear Shop)

BPL FireLite Firestarter
I love this FireLite Mini. It's the only thing that I 100% trust to start a fire. With a mini Bic you can run out of gas, be at too high of an altitude, get it wet or get it oily. Matches can ...

Baladeo 22 Grams Knife
This knife is a brilliant design. Every part of it is functional and the result is a lot of knife for just 22g (or 24.3g as mine as actually weighs). When I opened the (very nice) box and first played...
