DAM weight
Mine weighs 18.4 oz, and it measures 60x24x2.5, mummy style. It's double the weight of my neoair short, but I had already decided I wanted something longer, somewhere in the 13 oz range, and w...

Good DAM news
I got to test-drive my KookaBay DAM last night. I was in pretty much the same conditions as a few weeks ago - about 5 feet of snow, temperatures in the low 30's and upper 20's, same SMD Wi...

Small vs regular Neo Air
John's comments: "My biggest complaint was keeping my pack under my feet, the pad under my torso, and the pillow under my head all at the same time. With the tossing and turning I do it wa...

sauces for dinner (pre-made)
I wouldn't. The vinegar is also an important part of the taste, in addition to the preservability, and is not too strong to need cutting back.

Many Hikers in Need
I actually thought of you, Kendall, when we all piled on the bandwagon to help Don. There are a lot of people who would benefit from each other's good will, but some go more unnoticed and unhe...

NeoAir Pad -- Too Cool??
Ben - the same thing happened to me last week. I used a short Neoair with a 1/8" ccf pad under it, and another one over it as a sandwich. Temps got down to high 20's. I was just cold en...

I had a similar experience to David's. They sent the inferior space blankets, rather than the correct order, took forever to send a return UPS shipping label, and only yesterday admitted to recei...

Boomer's Guide to Lightweight Backpacking by Carol Corbridge
I was very disappointed in this book. Luckily, I didn't buy it but had checked it out from the library. For starters, the book is in major need of copy editing. There are lots of awkward sent...

These do everything BPL promised - provide comfortable warmth without being bulky. I've worn them under non-winter hiking pants all winter, and they've extended the comfort range down to 7 de...

I'm not sure whether to review these in raingear or softshell clothing, because they're both. They are all-day pants, rather than rain pants to pull on over hiking pants and are made of a fab...
