Patagonia Micropuff Pullover-trade

Big Agnes Seedhouse SL2
At only 2lbs. 14ozs. this is a very light double wall tent. I loved the all mesh walls which helps with ventilation and I never experienced condensation, but there were a few problems I had. Unless ...

Backpacking Light Ti Esbit stove
I love this little stove. It fits my SP Trek 700 pot perfectly and I was suprised to find it is very stable. I have had no issues with the rivet. It gets great looks when you pull it out.
