FS: Bug Bivy
The North Face Debug Bivy Pretty unique item. I got this thinking I would use it inside a teepee or under a tarp as a UL tent that would keep the soggy NW ground at bay and keep bugs off me. It&...

About US Reel XL180
Interesting. I haven't had any problems with mine, but I've been focusing a little more on Tenkara for the last year or so. Still, I have used it dozens of times with no issues so far. T...

Granite Gear Nimbus Trace and hip belts?
Hi Jason - My belt is an XL, so I don't think it will work for you. It's in perfect shape, so I think I'll probably try to swap it out with GG myself. If you Nimbus came with a n...

Granite Gear Nimbus Trace and hip belts?
I doubt the Trace will come with a Vapor Current belt. All Nimbus belts have a beefy grommet in the middle. They attach with a small screw. It's impossible to get a Vapor belt on a Nimbus pack ...

Fishing / Hiking in the Cascades
Tough time of the year right now. There were fish rising at Dusty a month or so ago, but access is pretty rotten if you're not floating. Lots of brush on the banks. We were up the Middle For...

Washington backpack early June
Early June is one of the most frustrating times of the year out here. Weather is improving, but snowpack is still very high. You won't get anything much over 3000' - less in many places. ...

JetBoil Sol Hacks
Looks good, Todd! A couple quick thoughts: - After using my setup in the real world on a backpacking trip last month, I'm pretty happy with it. I found that I prefer the slots actually pret...

Granite Gear Crown Large
Same question as David. They look short-ish. Also, how well are they spaced apart from each other? I find the rotating ones on the Nimbus line of packs are great as they adjust to the correct width...

GoLite Shangri-La 2/3, winter/alpine use?
Mine is the 3, although the original version - not the current generation. To be honest, I rarely use it in summer. I prefer to hang in a hammock. But for alpine use or places that won't hav...

GoLite Shangri-La 2/3, winter/alpine use?
Of all the shelters I've used over the last 20 years, this is the one I'd trust. By far. I've had in at least 3 storms that I'd count as "alpine scary". It did fine in all...

BPL Ultralight Fishing Rod Case 2"
I'd been looking for a light, tough fishing rod tube for a long time and was excited to find this option. Despite fantastic customer service with a special request and fast shipping, this rod tube qu...

Lock Laces Shoe Laces Lock Laces Shoe Laces
I'll give the Lock-Laces that BPL sells a star for being incredibly comfortable during in-camp and flat trail duty, and another star for the quick and easy on-off they allow. But, they are not near...

Backpacking Light Ti Esbit stove
If Esbit is the fuel choice, this little stand is a fantastic option. Fits the GSI double boilers well and my Snowpeak bowl nicely. The real appeal is the ridiculously light weight. I can tos...
