Re: Altimeter watch
I have tried a few alti-baro watches, including a Suunto Vector that I owned for a couple years. I was never satisfied with any of them until I got my latest - the Suunto Core. I am very happy wi...

Re: A fire what!?!

Help me brainstorm a Caldera Cone (TM) for the FireLite 475ml Ti Trapper's Mug

There really is a "Pertex Quantum Endurance"?!

Re: Experience with the Montbell Breeze Dry-tech bivy?

REI Minimalist Bivy Sack
I picked up a REI Minimalist Bivy in size long to try out. The long also has added girth, which is great. I slept in it twice in my backyard proving ground. Both times were clear, low humidity night...

Black Diamond Spire Elliptical Trekking Poles
I was intrigued by these initially because of the ellipical shafts - definitely seem stronger/stiffer on the principle axis than comparable weight round poles. I was willing to live with the 20 oz pe...
