Nice improvements
Matt, It’s been a busy two weeks for you. You have a real good list here. I hope you have not actually purchased all of the changes each time, but more making a wish list before buying. I know...

Tarp and Can Stove????
For something that started as a thread on a Tarp and Can Stove, it has gone way off track. I have to commend both Ray Jardine and GoLite for what they have done to inspire many in the quest for ...

Ursack is back
Yes, the Ursack is back (sort of), with a new fabric. This new Ursack TKO 2.0 uses a high tech Vectran fabric which, as their site says “has approximately the same tensile and break strength as t...

Yes, that long ago
Yes Paul it was that long ago. I remember when I was young teen, I had a girlfriend give me one of those oval shaped stone in the brass setting rings in '69', as it was the latest fad. In fact it w...

mood rings
Back in the late sixties, early seventy's (can still be found though) you could get a ring with a stone in it that changes colours based on your body temperature. Amount of moisture may have been t...

Thanks PJ
PJ, Thanks. I found other info as well and it seems there was an issue with earlier releases of these carbon poles and the third/bottom section not staying in place. Particularly in colder tempera...

Does anyone have any experience or knowledge on the three-section telescoping poles with the REI Peak UL Carbon Poles loosing grip after being set. I thought I read somewhere that some poles (not ...

RE: More Bear Boxes
Robert, I agree that not all areas should be treated the same. You said "If bombproof food storage is the answer, why not have a few more bear boxes established? Especially along the backpacker ma...

Bearvault Twist Off
I didn't think the twist off cap used with the Bearvault was difficult at all. In fact I thought it was extremely easy, that was why I am skeptical of how well it works with bears.

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 too am a firm believer in gravity filters. It is a blessing that you can still get filtered water with little effort while you complete some other chore around camp. I have used self made gravity fi...

Beyond Backpacking by Ray Jardine
I believe each post have their valid points. I believe the general consensus, mine included, is that Beyond Backpacking © is something that should be on every backpacker’s bookshelf. I have read and r...

GoLite Breeze
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 ...

I bought these to replace my older / heavier poles. I prefer collapsible poles so I can adjust the height with my tarps and my SMD Lunar Solo. I did the research before buying and was concerned about...

I think this stove is the next generation of things to come. With a collapsible burner head, it folds over for 3.1 ounces of ultimate compact ability. The oversized burner head offers a better burn an...
