Re: Umbrellas
I also have a GoLite umbrella and have gotten one for the same reason as PJ did. I have used on occasions, but like others I use trekking poles more often than not. I have tried a few times with li...

Sat phone vs. HAM
I agree with John that a 5 watt HT works great. The only problem is in very remote locations you may not get a repeater, but you can talk with any SAR team, Park Ranger or local law enforcement in ...

Re: seychelle and siltstopper inline
John, The Platy Big Zip has an exit port on the bottom and a plastic zip, just like a ziploc bag (only stronger)as the filling point. Leaving it open does not cause a vacuum issue. I use the H2O Am...

RE: seychelle and siltstopper inline
I have used the same filter configuration with a Big Zip Platypus as the reservoir. I found I too had flow issues when I placed the siltstopper and Seychelle filters close to the exit port of the P...

RE: Cocoon Pants Backorder
First of all, I was reiterating the question Bill had at the start of this thread. Yes, I made a sarcastic remark as to added interest from deposits initially made 3 months ago. I have no idea how ...

Re: Cocoon Pants Status
This is a good question as to when the first batch will be sent out. I too am waiting as one of the first group. I find it interesting they charge your account when ordered and it goes beyond the...

RE: Ryan's mystery pack
It almost looks like a Kelty Cloud, but I can't believe Ryan wearing a 4.5 pound pack.

Re" Bending Titanium
Paul – I am currently a software engineer, among other tasks. Thanks for the offer though. No offense, but I think Connecticut is a bit too expensive to live there and it's much to close to my ex...

Photon Light Proton Personal Flashlight
I would give the Proton a 4 out of 5 score primarily because of its high cost ($69). It is an excellent light if you need to do any emergency signaling at night or if you need a high intensity beam fo...

Six Moon Designs Lunar Solo
I like the simplicity in the concept of the design. It is a combination of bivy sack and single wall tent with plenty of room that weighs in at 25 ounces. The bathtub floor and netting along the floor...

I too am a firm believer in gravity filters. It is a blessing that you can still get filtered water with little effort while you complete some other chore around camp. I have used self made gravity fi...

GoLite Breeze
I have to say this is not the worst pack I ever had, but close to it. I do like the simplicity, but the straps are just killer. With 18 pounds I can carry on one shoulder and switch sides, but when ...

I bought these to replace my older / heavier poles. I prefer collapsible poles so I can adjust the height with my tarps and my SMD Lunar Solo. I did the research before buying and was concerned about...
