Re: WTB-Micropuff Pullover and Vest
Good luck with that... putting the zipper on the front of that garment was a disaster in my opinion. The pullover is lighter and warmer, in my opinion. I will say that if you have no luck conside...

Re: Bushbuddy
My Bushbuddy just arrived... weeks earlier than I expected. I guess things move faster than Fritz may have thought (12 days from order to my door). It is indeed a work of art. It came in a nifty...

That plus the "nifty factor" for this stove is very, very high... the only way it could get higher is if they found a way to put functional LEDs on it... as you may know LEDs automaticall...

I ordered from the web form and payed via Paypal. I got a very prompt personal email, I think a few hours later, and the price did include shipping. I didn't try to call. Do they have phones...

Re: Bushbuddy

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...

I am a huge fan of 3M Ultrathon largely because the stuff works REALLY WELL... for what I use it for. So this is sort of my "gold standard"... encapsulated DEET lotion. That said, differ...

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...
