Re: 3 gm, 9" Titanium bike spokes: What to use for?
What about light shelter support either shapped in the hood of a bivy, or on the foot-end of a tarp set up like the HS Contrail? Spokes would seem ideal for adding structure to a shelter in a numb...

De-wrinkling silnylon
So admitedly I stored my Golite Poncho (1.76 oz silnylon) stuffed for a while, but I've had it hanging from a clothes hanger for a couple of weeks, but it is still very wrinkled. I'm guess...

Mountain Hardwear Phantom 32 F, 800 down

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...
