About Me I live in the Redwoods of Northern California. It rains here, a lot, often going 30+ days without it stopping. I love it!

I have migrated from a 35 pound BPW setup to a winter time setup of under 7 pounds, a shoulder season setup of under 5 pounds and a summer time setup of under two pounds. Check out my website http://www.hikelighter.com/ for my gear list and reading my articles, and my youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/HikeLighter for videos on SUL and XUL gear and whatnot.

I'll offer you 80 bucks for it. You can keep the Leatherman Style CS, take out and throw away the bottles so it will be less expensive to ship and fit in a much much smaller package.

Re: Re: Best stand-alone bivy?
The Ti Goat "Bug Bivy" is the only bivy that I own and plan to ever use. It will never suffer condensation. Your sleeping bag should provide your warmth, not your shelter.

WTB: Jetboil Sol Ti Cup
Hello, Looking for a Jetboil Sol Ti Cup... just the cup... not the whole system. I do not care how beat up it might be, so long as the fins on the bottom are in good condition and there is no...
