Re:"Which One?" (pillow)
I am another satisfied Montbell pillow user. I use a buff (tubular bandana) as a SUL pillow cover. I also have an inflatable pillow that I made by cutting and resealing the end of a 5L POE WxTe...

Re: What's in your first aid kit?

How about your Sub-10 list
Sub-1 has been interesting, and sub-5 is pretty educational, but how about a thread for the rest of the UL community? I believe that RJ considers a 10 lb base weight to be the UL cutoff. So let...

Re: I may go with an Oware cattarp

Re: Bivys on the AT
I have no experience on the AT, and little experience in warm humid locales with a bivy, but I do own a TiGoat Ptarmigan bivy. It seems to breathe as well as anything that I have used, including m...

Solar still the lightest?
Ha! Never would have thought of the solar still! But wouldn't you need something to dig with? Or are you going to claw a giant hole in the earth with your bare hands? Perhaps we should rev...

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...
