re:Looking for a Down Jacket
Ryan, I have used the thermawrap and the Light Alpine Down, not the UL inner down. I thought the thermawrap and UL were equal, so went with the warmer Light Alpine Down for conditions colder then a...

Richard, I can go almost any day; the Shibuya MB is 15min from my work. They have most the bags hanging on a rack; I could measure approximate double thickness loft and report back if there is int...

Outdoor Writing Gear- Camera with sound only
My advice is basically the same as Ben's, but you can choose your digital camera so it has voice recording capability. I can fit more than 100 hours of good quality mono on a 2G card with the c...

Steven, sorry about that!
In a recent add for UL down here, MB did not even picture the UL down parka; maybe it will never be sold here. Sorry I could not come through on that one for you.. :(

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...

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...

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'...

Montbell U.L. 90 Sleeping Pad U.L. 90
