Re: Best UL products of 2010
So far this year I think I am going to pick my Goss Gear LT4's. They are super bomber and the weight is non-existant. I ordered a Zhitshat a while back as well and it is pretty cool but def n...

Re: Narrowed it down to 2 Bags

Re: Which Sleeping Pad for JMT
My wife and I each had Prolite pads (XS and 3/4 size) and Goss Gear Nightlight Torso pads. The logic was to use the Prolites for comfortable sleeping and the Nightlights were used as sitpads, emer...

Re: Re: ID eVENT Jacket Sizing

I have been using the EOS-R for alittle under a year now and have been super happy with it. For some odd reason I find night-time winter trail running "fun" and this is the only headlamp I ...

I purchased this pack alittle over a year ago and simply put, this may be one of the best overall trekking packs for hikers with a well dialed kit. While it is alittle much for a weekend trip it is g...

First off I must say that for the vast majority of my trips I strongly prefer a tarp/bivy combo. But for those times when I need a full tent, the Europa has always worked pretty darn well for me. Wh...

Inov8 Flyroc 310
As a trail shoe I do not think it gets much better than the Flyroc's. With their forefoot space, amazing trail feel and fast drying mesh they are pretty close to perfect for New England hiking. ...
