Re: UL Fail
I don't really give a hoot about labels like UL or SUL or whatever. I think we just need to recognize that there are many ways to enjoy hiking -- and a lot of it is actually dependent on how ...

Big Sky Ultra C Aluminum Tent Stakes

Titanium Goat Adjustable CF Trekking Poles
I received my pair and went on a moderate 2-hour hike today (approx. 2,000 ft. elevation gain over 2.7 miles -- then returning back down). I find the specs to be accurate, and the poles a beauty to...
