Methanol toxicity, wind screens for canister stoves
Commenting on some of the topic ramifications: I think it was on one of this site's articles that I read about the ethanol ingestion as a partial, on-the-go-while-there's-nothing-else-an...

Re: Bike + Tarp (w/ no poles)

Re:Rain gloves (or vapor barrier gloves)

Nunatak Arc Ghost
I was torn between Ghost and Alpinist before ordering and eventually ordered something in between, quite like the former X from BMW. It has the loft of the Ghost with the dimensions of the Alpinist an...
