Stoic Hadron
My theory is they must have gotten a great deal somewhere on fabric colors no one else wanted. Same with zippers and trim. On the upside (for them), in my experience, the ultralight crowd that it l...

One night haul in Shenadoah, VA
Steven -- thanks for the encouragement on a MYOG alcohol stove. I've been considering it, but haven't had the time. Should have a chance in early/mid November to try a few MYOG projects, an...

Stoic Hadron
I've been looking at the same think; was on SAC yesterday sometime for less than $100, which made it a pretty good deal. I've got a 7-oz Montbell with 2-oz of down in it that works very wel...

One night haul in Shenadoah, VA -- first solo since knee surgery
Short version: tore out an ACL (for the second time) in August 2010; got it redone in December, months of therapy, etc. Have been slowly building back up, but haven't done a trip to push it. I ...

Extending 30 degree bag into mid-20s
I guess my other thought would be to realistically aim lower than you're at. I have often found myself in colder temps than I planned for (or that were forecast). Sometimes you're just in a...

Extending 30 degree bag into mid-20s
For what it's worth, my wife and I recently got Black Rock Gear down hats from Evan, and he was one of the easiest and nicest people I've worked with. He didn't have in stock what we ne...

Lightweight on the trails
Any chance a reduced visible UL presence is due to a lot of ULers camping LNT in areas not-visible from the trail? I wouldn't expect to see many of the BPL crowd in their campsites. The only...

After-dinner hygiene in bear country
Instead of toothpaste, I just use baking soda most of the time on the trail. A little bit in a tiny plastic jar lasts a long time, and is a multiuse substance. Also, no real odors. And as someon...

Living vicariously
I agree with others that for many of us who don't have enough free time to spend on the trail (not nearly as much as we would like), gear talk helps us live on the trail in our minds, despite o...

I don't meet the criteria set out by the OP. I have not had a chance this year to take trips more than a long weekend on the trails. However, I will say that as for "do I actually use my g...

Camp Xenon 4
New for spring/summer 2011, I was really excited about the Camp Xenon 4 poles. They looked like the best value/weight option on the market, so I was really excited to try them out. The 120cm poles spe...

Stoic LTWT Sleeping Pad - short
I recently picked up a pair of these when they were a good price (~$20/each); I usually use Z-Rests, but my wife prefers an inflatable mat, and these fit the bill for cost/weight/value. shape is nicel...

Big Agnes Pumphouse Multi-Use Dry Sack and Pad Pump
I agree with previous reviews that this bag only does one thing well -- put air in your sleeping pad. That said, I bring it along on most trips with friends, and it makes it easier for many people -- ...
