Re: litemax stove
Ironically, the outdated photo was from the Snow Peak website! This seems to fit better with the model Chris descibed.

Re: Tarps and Bivies
Interesting that Rab describes the ultra bivy as made from "Pertex Quantum Endurance" fabric. There is no such thing. It's either Pertex Quantum, or it's Pertex Endurance. PQ i...

Re: Sun shade tarp
I have a 12x12 Kelty Noah's Tarp that I take on river trips. It's catenary cut on the edges, and fairly tough fabric, but it weighs 2 lbs!

Re: Re: "Insect repellent - what do you use?"
Read here once that DEET is still the most effective in concentrations of 25-30% and above (higher just makes it last longer). However, I have had WPB coatings (urethane?) get soft and sticky from...

Re: Is there any such thing as a utilitarian all purpose shelter?
What you have identified appears to me to be light 4-season use. My first choice would be that blue wonder that Roger Caffin made/uses. My second choice would be some sort of pyramid tarp w...

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...
