My Locale Desert Southwest, USA
About Me Backpacking Light online magazine Editor-in-chief. I live and do a lot of my backpacking in the desert, but I LOVE the mountains of the west! I schedule mountain trips as often as I can to get my thin air "fix." Currently, I'm enjoying experimenting with heavier options like hammocking and more complex cooking. I keep my base weight from creeping up too far by starting from a SuperUltraLight gear list and making limited heavier substitutions.

Out of the rabbit hole
I just climbed out of the rabbit hole. I'm a bit disoriented and don't know where I am, but I see lots of cactus. I posted just to check on my rank. Hope it's gone down - lower is better, right?

Coughlan's LED Clip-on Headlight
The Coughlan’s LED Clip-on Headlight is light weight, inexpensive and bright enough for around camp chores. The red filter is a nice feature to save night vision. I gave it a 3 of 5 because it was fru...

Inov8 Terroc 330 - Men's

Tilley LT5
