Re: What is the best wicking t-shirt?
I pretty much get anything for running and use that hiking. The Coolmax stuff is acceptable... I have a lot of Brooks stuff and I think I like this the best. I just get whatever is on closeout. ...

Re: Bear Valley
I mean that's 'pemmican' as in a brand name, right? It's not pemmican as in the food. I have been interested in pemmican after reading a history book a few years ago but short of ...

Re: UL quickdraw <$10
I have several of the CAMP Nanowire quickdraws and the specs aren't significantly different. I think you can get lighter... I was looking at these a while ago.

Re: Best pillow?

Re: pot size

Re: Lighting the Bush Buddy...
I lit my Bushbuddy today on the picnic table in my backyard. I used a bunch of sticks, nothing larger than my index finger. It wasn't totally dry wood but close. Frankly I was amazed. One t...

Pro-Tick Remedy Pro-Tick
I am so glad someone posted a review of this gizmo. First let me say that you can remove a tick with a pair of tweezers. The Pro-Tick Remedy tool is not multi-use like tweezers. That said, it w...

What's with people that review gear they have never owned nor tested in the field? This is a mystery to me. Anyway, on to the Jetboil. I bought this because... I had an REI dividend and the...
