$100

More on stakes
Will said: Petras, the main reason we are concerned about holding power is WIND. Sorry I didn't mention that in the article. It would be interesting to measure the actual pull on a tent stak...

Not quite the bottom line

Bivy experiences
I use a BMW bivy under a tarp for most of my hiking. Here are my experiences. At around 200 grams, the bivy provides a ground sheet, stops the wind chilling me in my quilt and provides spray pr...

Therm-a-Rest Neoair
I am a side sleeper and have used the Prolite 3 and normally a 3/4 length Prolite 4 but find the NeoAir to be far more comfortable. If you blow up the NeoAir on a warm sunny day you will find that ...

Stephenson 2R
