Re: Re: Re: Jiva Coffee Cubes
I believe the CEO of Starbucks is on record that his business didn't take off until they started selling "milk shake" coffee flavored drinks like the Crappachino.

Re: SmarTube vs Convertube...
I use the Platypus Drink Tube Kit with a 1L Platy bottle carried on the top of my Kumo pack under the OTT lid. Keeps the tube length short and pack balanced as the bottle empties. Don't think t...

Re: Re: Zpacks trekking pole holders
Mark, I always have a hard time securing the poles in the bottom loop on the Exos pole carrier, especially when I have the pocket jammed full or using snow baskets on my poles. And the top loop see...

Re: samurai style

Re: Re: Re: Montbell Alpine Down Parka (not "Light") & new Montbell stuff
JC, you would be wildly overestimating the amount of down at nearly 50% of the jackets weight thinking it has 180g-200g of down. Not even the Mirage with its 7D fabric has a fill ratio that high. T...
