Inov9 390 owners, do they run small?
My 330s in size 11 fit normally, which is to say 1/2 size too big to accomodate 2 socks. But my 318s in 11 are too tight and short in the toe region. Can any 390 owners tell me if they run 't...

Richard; WILCO
90% chance I can go Tuesday night and get that data. I'll measure in two places to be more accurate but still my sample size will equal only 1 bag. If you have any particular test procedure le...

UL Trail Shoe options
Im partial to Inov-8 for the light weight and flexible footbeds, but I recommend one of the goretex models to keep your feet dry in shallow water. The 318s for example. My 330s are nice, but I have...

Montbell site allows "Sort by Weight"; hoping others follow
Just noticed this. Nice to be able to sort by weight. I've been emailing REI to do this for years with no joy. Again MB shows they value light gear. This link should open the UL down SS bags...

Backpack makers.. copy this? [pic] Panel opens under shoulder straps
Since buying my first panel access backpack I strongly prefer them. Usually the maker will put the zipper on the front; Muji has put the panel on the back, under the shoulder straps. I thought this...

5.11 gear Tactical nylon pants
These pants weigh in at 720grams, that's a pound and a half, folks. I bought them as winter hiking pants because I do not need the convertable feature of my other pants in winter, but I found thes...

Cilogear Schoolbag
I got my second Cilogear last week, what Graham calls the "Schoolbag". Here in BPL land it makes for a very nice day-hiking pack and I bet many BPL members could fit a weekend kit into its 3...

tiny BIC lighter (the cute one)
I carry various types of fire making gear for my own educational and practice purposes, but I always have one of these 11 gram bics taped to my keychain or in my pot set. They won't flame when soa...

SnowClaw Backcountry Shovel Racer Backcountry Shovel
My snow claw is one of the more recent models. I used it on one winter trip for bivy prep; I can move snow at a higher rate than with a shovel due to the low inertia of the blade; I dug into a 45'...

Lite my fire firesteel scout firelighter
This device reliably makes sparks as advertised; even when wet. But so will an 11 gram mini-bic. So I carry the bic. Also, the tiny spark-maker from a Spark-lite is also a fraction of this item'...

Montbell U.L. 90 Sleeping Pad U.L. 90
I own the 120cm version, but aside from the dimensions and weight, it is identical. This pad is not remarkable on its own, but as part of the Montbell sleep system, it is. The toggles mate with the...

Sealskinz gloves
Sealskinz absorb water like a big fat sponge, and weighing them on my scale, they did indeed double in weight when wet. Totally unaceptable, and uncomfortable. Returned to REI.
