Looks interesting. As you grow, I would suggest more photo-illustrations of the different options, the more visual your website can get, the better it will be. Good luck!

Re: Re: OR Ion Windshirt?
I also like my OR Ion, which I also purchased from the REI outlet, but I have to dissagree on the hood. I have what is by most accounts a large head, but this hood is huge, and the closure is funk...

I took a WFA course a couple years back, but they didn't really specify what one should bring, outside of the first aid kit. Obviously gear choices are conservative when first aid is a primary...

Re: Re: Titanium Goat
I have the basic DWR bivy in large, the company was great, very responsive (replied to emails hours later, on a national holiday). The bivy is nice, very roomy girth-wise, but barely long enough f...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: How about 2 packs?
It's actually looking like I will be going for the Comet, same supsension, better compression, and volume wise should still be good for me. Yes, I could get the Jam2 with my REI rebate and not...

Re: Vasque Catalyst Shoe
The catalyst that I have is an approach shoe with 5.10 climbing rubber, is that the one you are looking at? If so, it's too flexible for bp'ing in my opinion, on a 3 day trip the bottoms ...

Six moon suspension
As my quest for the perfect UL pack (for me) continues, I have been reading up on the Six Moon Designs packs. I am having trouble picturing the adjustable suspension however, so if anybody has a c...

So where do you see the shoes on the golite shoes website? All I can see is the three tiny little boxes that go with the three different peaks.

I have used this quilt 15 nights this summer, all in the northern Sierra in the greater Lake Tahoe area. Temperatures were between the low 30's and the high 40's. The quilt was used in con...

This review is for the large bivy with the old-style bug headnet (a mesh headnet bag sewn across the chest, pulled over the head, under the bivy). This is the best value hands down in water resista...

Mountain Hardwear Phantom 32 F, 800 down
The phantom 32 was my first light-weight item, and is still my favorite. Loft is great, the hood fits great, and there is enough room for me to add a down jacket or vest. The one downside is the .85 ...

Golite Den 2
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...
