"snowshoe advice, please"
Have to agree about MSR evo denali. Great shoe; great traction. For once, a modular system is actually a plus; will not break. Maybe not the best flotation in deep snow, however.

"Down hooded jackets"
I just received the Alpini hooded anorak and am very pleased (20% off the SALE price!). I'm 5'9' and 140 lbs; the large fit me perfectly (not sloppy at all but some room for layers.) Th...

"Brooks Range Alpini Anorak Hoody @ REI"
I just received the hoodie. I usually take a medium but they only had size large in a hoodie; as it turns out, it fits perfectly. (I'm 5'9 140 lbs.) I'm really impressed with this jacke...

Bad experience with Jetboil"

Long-Term Durability of the BA Fly Creek

"the space is luxurious". Yeah, I came to the Sl1 and then the fly creek from using a very much smaller "tent" for several years. To me, these tents were palatial. They still se...
