Polycarbonate controversry
Educate yourself and make an educated decision. Some things we get exposed to really are statistically significantly bad; cigarette smoke for example; thalidomide here in Japan as another example. ...

Winter footwear advice?
I chose the Inov8 390s to test out this winter. I did not consider the possibility that the goretex lining would make the boots uncomfortably hot; I hope not. My Inov8 330s are great in dry/hot co...

Montbell in Japan, Arapiles down under
Two of the MB outlets have recently closed, the ones at Ebisu and Odaiba. Closest one to central Tokyo now is the outlet corner in the Yokohama location. And Yokohama is a great place to visit anyw...

2007 Backpacking Light Picks
My top 3 items: 1. Like several other posters, my Caldera Cones make the list. They finally make meal preparation over alcohol easy, faster, and convenient. One cone of Titanium(or Al) is the sc...

Looking for Light Weight Hiking Shoes
Hi Ben, Ive gone exclusively to Inov-8 for the light weight and flexibility. The 330s run true to size, the 318s run 1/2 size small, and I'm waiting on my 390's. Hopefully the waterproof 39...

What time does SAC change their deals
Sometimes they dont wait. I see the identical item appear more than once in a day. (each deal pops up on my taskbar). I spend way too much there, SAC gifts for everyone this year..

WTB 2-Person Tent
That is a great deal on the Lighting, but I had one and found the lack of peak vent unaceptable for 3 season hiking. It was a sweaty sauna when zipped up. Also consider the REI quarter dome UL; it...

5.11 gear Tactical nylon pants
These pants weigh in at 720grams, that's a pound and a half, folks. I bought them as winter hiking pants because I do not need the convertable feature of my other pants in winter, but I found thes...

I got my second Cilogear last week, what Graham calls the "Schoolbag". Here in BPL land it makes for a very nice day-hiking pack and I bet many BPL members could fit a weekend kit into its 3...

I carry various types of fire making gear for my own educational and practice purposes, but I always have one of these 11 gram bics taped to my keychain or in my pot set. They won't flame when soa...

SnowClaw Backcountry Shovel Racer Backcountry Shovel
My snow claw is one of the more recent models. I used it on one winter trip for bivy prep; I can move snow at a higher rate than with a shovel due to the low inertia of the blade; I dug into a 45'...

Lite my fire firesteel scout firelighter
This device reliably makes sparks as advertised; even when wet. But so will an 11 gram mini-bic. So I carry the bic. Also, the tiny spark-maker from a Spark-lite is also a fraction of this item'...

Montbell U.L. 90 Sleeping Pad U.L. 90
I own the 120cm version, but aside from the dimensions and weight, it is identical. This pad is not remarkable on its own, but as part of the Montbell sleep system, it is. The toggles mate with the...

Sealskinz gloves
Sealskinz absorb water like a big fat sponge, and weighing them on my scale, they did indeed double in weight when wet. Totally unaceptable, and uncomfortable. Returned to REI.
