Watch
Of your listed watches, I own a Vector and I can say your battery life will be two years if you use the alarm every day. I am sure that would last longer if you do not use the alarm as much. It is ...

synthetic briefs
I have used the Duofold boxer briefs and Ex Officio boxer briefs and I prefer the Ex Officio. IMHO, they breathe well, dry very quick and help prevent chaffing.

Does anyone know if the Trangia Titanium Saucepan (1L) and Frypan/Lid (18cm) fit together with a snap like their Mini 28 kit does? Also, can someone define for me the difference between the 1L Inn...

John, Are you saying you treated your clothing with Permethrin and it did not work?

Umbrella Quiver
I think an umbrella quiver would add more weight. In my GoLite Race and my Gregory Z Pack I place it in the large outside mesh pocket with the handle (and umbrella spines) down; over to one side. I...

Photon Light Proton Personal Flashlight
I would give the Proton a 4 out of 5 score primarily because of its high cost ($69). It is an excellent light if you need to do any emergency signaling at night or if you need a high intensity beam fo...

Six Moon Designs Lunar Solo
I like the simplicity in the concept of the design. It is a combination of bivy sack and single wall tent with plenty of room that weighs in at 25 ounces. The bathtub floor and netting along the floor...

I have to say this is not the worst pack I ever had, but close to it. I do like the simplicity, but the straps are just killer. With 18 pounds I can carry on one shoulder and switch sides, but when ...
