Re: FireLite 475ml Ti Trapper's Mug

Re: Packraft Trekking in Montana's Bear Trap Canyon (Videocast)
I just recently bought a full drysuit (NRS Extreme Relief) for the traditional catarafting that I do. It's heavy by UL standards at around 4 pounds (XXL), but it can be used in lieu of raingea...

REI Minimalist Bivy Sack
I picked up a REI Minimalist Bivy in size long to try out. The long also has added girth, which is great. I slept in it twice in my backyard proving ground. Both times were clear, low humidity night...
