First trip with true-UL
So last weekend I got out with my all-new UL gear list. The trip: a shakedown hike in Tahoe National Forest between 5,000 and 7,500 feet, snow drifts remaining, cool clowdy condition. The gear: ...

Re: SMD Comet
The Comet's belt is more substantial than most UL packs, but I'll have to hold off on comfort until I get some serious miles in.

Re: Re: Well I ordered a no sniveller...
So I came home from work to a nice surprise... my no sniveller in the mail! I layed it out, patiently waiting for it to loft up from its long trip in a small box, and that lasted... five minutes. ...

Well I ordered a no sniveller...
So I placed my order Tuesday, and the guys at JRB sent it Wednesday and gave me the tracking number, but the tracking number doesn't turn anything up. Add the fact that they are off at trail...

Re: how 'bout the 6moondesigns wild oasis
I would agree that the SMD wild oasis would be a good place to start, and would add the Gossamer Gear Spinnshelter. The GG website has directions to make a spinnshelter bathtub floor, which would ...

Re: Re: sale

Re: How would you set up 2 5'x8' tarps?
You can affectivly turn two 8x5s into a 8x10 by joining them length-wise and using that as the ridgeline for a A-frame style pitch. Keeping that ridgeline from leaking, however, would take a littl...

I have used this pack a total of 17 days this summer, including 15 on a thru-hike of the Tahoe Rim Trail. The pack volume and design suit my needs perfectly for carrying up to 5 days worth of food,...

Mountain Hardwear Phantom 32 F, 800 down
The phantom 32 was my first light-weight item, and is still my favorite. Loft is great, the hood fits great, and there is enough room for me to add a down jacket or vest. The one downside is the .85 ...

Similar to tarptent designs, but no vestibule and made out of Golite's heavy-duty silnylon, so it weighs a little more (3.5 lbs). I have used it in Tahoe National Forest where it was used for me and a...
