Brasslite Turbo F Moddifed
Douglas, thanks for posting your results. You've basically throttled back a Turbo F to match the size of your 600ml. I had to go dig out my Brasslite since I switched to Calderas, but my Brassl...

Hi Ben : ) Seems to be the only CREE based AA with a 90' head. SPAM or not I found it interesting.

Zebralight, 66 lumens/2.3hrs, on a AA, but..!
Joseph, thanks for the heads up on that. I have a Cree LED in my Fenix L0D and its amazing, but it starts up on MED. Nice to see the Zebra starts up on LOW. Its 'unique' feature is the 90&#...

ID Event Thru Hiker Jacket
Another vote for the thru-hiker; I bought the basic ID event jacket but had to sell it for being too small. When I can justify it; Ill replace my TNF Diad with the Thru-hiker. Good luck on your hike!

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...

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'...

This device reliably makes sparks as advertised; even when wet. But so will an 11 gram mini-bic. So I carry the bic. Also, the tiny spark-maker from a Spark-lite is also a fraction of this item'...

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

Sealskinz gloves
Sealskinz absorb water like a big fat sponge, and weighing them on my scale, they did indeed double in weight when wet. Totally unaceptable, and uncomfortable. Returned to REI.
