there must be a better way
Mike, I love the smell of a campfire, but there must be a better way than jumping over open flames in our underwear... Again, I vote for a BPL research study / stink off. No one else can b...

when do you take ID eVent Gaiters, height of Leva Gaiters
Thanks Jason, 1) how are the stretch gaiters in summer, especially considering that they are black? 2) how are the eVent gaiters in milder cooler weather, say 45F - 65F? 3) When do you dec...

Patagonia Houdini Wind Jacket
My wife has had such good experience with her Houdini that I'm going to switch over from my Montane Lite-speed. I've used my Montane Lite-Speed in almost all conditions. The material has excellent ...
