Re: Bending Titanium (repeatedly)
With all scientific analysis put aside. I have a Snow Peak Ti spork. I bend it slightly to where each end is about 2.5 to 3 inches apart so it will fit in one of my pots. I have owned this spork f...

Re: (Yosemite Valley -> Devils Postpile)
Your picture of Mist Trail really captures the 'pot-of-gold' at the end of the rainbow. Beautiful pictures.

RE: BMW Tarps and Beaks
I believe "beaks" may be trademarked; you may want to look at the post in the "Chaff" section on Ray Jardine Trademarks. All kidding aside, I agree some form of protection on the open ends of a t...

Ray Jardine Claims
I have to hand it to Ray Jardine... he has inspired many, and has come up with some great ideas. On the other hand, I have to question some of his claims. One example is his "Butterfly Clove Hitch"...

Re: Seychelle filter question
The first time I flushed mine I actually put it inline with my Big Zip Platy - then let gravity do the work. May use a bit more water, and it took about 45 minutes to filter 3 liters the first time...

Trangia and simmer
Glen, I too use the Clikstand and the simmer ring works great. I can bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes with just 2 ounces. Yes the twist top is a little stiff at first, but it will loosen ...

Re: best alcohol stove for simmering
IMHO, I believe the Trangia Stove is the best alcohol stove for simmering that is all inclusive. This is because of the adjustable cap that you can set before placing it over the flame. It can also...

Canister Windscreen
The windscreen in the example is for the Giga Power stove. I use a Brunton Crux and that design would not work. What I have done for my windscreen is take a piece of Aluminum Flashing and cut i...

Were these Entrees only selected by participants at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market? I am surprised some of Mountain House products were not reviewed. Most of the MH items only require adding ...

Photon Light Proton Personal Flashlight
I would give the Proton a 4 out of 5 score primarily because of its high cost ($69). It is an excellent light if you need to do any emergency signaling at night or if you need a high intensity beam fo...

Six Moon Designs Lunar Solo
I like the simplicity in the concept of the design. It is a combination of bivy sack and single wall tent with plenty of room that weighs in at 25 ounces. The bathtub floor and netting along the floor...

I too am a firm believer in gravity filters. It is a blessing that you can still get filtered water with little effort while you complete some other chore around camp. I have used self made gravity fi...

I believe each post have their valid points. I believe the general consensus, mine included, is that Beyond Backpacking © is something that should be on every backpacker’s bookshelf. I have read and r...

I have to say this is not the worst pack I ever had, but close to it. I do like the simplicity, but the straps are just killer. With 18 pounds I can carry on one shoulder and switch sides, but when ...
