Group tarps
Lately I've been wanting to get a 4 person tarp (NOLS nostalgia), but I'm not sure the dimensions would work now that I'm not 14 years old. With a 4 person tarp, the ridge line is 90...

Re: nunatak

sleeping pad?
Will you have your sleeping pad inside or out of the bivy? As more of a sleeping bag cover than a full featured bivy, the Montbell seems difficult to accomodate a winter bag, pad, and boots. I w...

Didn't work for me...
I used it on the first night of my 15 day TRT thru-hike, and food didn't taste right for the next day, and the burning took longer to go away than that. I guess I used more than a drop, but I...

This review is for the large bivy with the old-style bug headnet (a mesh headnet bag sewn across the chest, pulled over the head, under the bivy). This is the best value hands down in water resista...

Mountain Hardwear Phantom 32 F, 800 down
The phantom 32 was my first light-weight item, and is still my favorite. Loft is great, the hood fits great, and there is enough room for me to add a down jacket or vest. The one downside is the .85 ...

Golite Den 2
Similar to tarptent designs, but no vestibule and made out of Golite's heavy-duty silnylon, so it weighs a little more (3.5 lbs). I have used it in Tahoe National Forest where it was used for me and a...
