Re: Re: Bacpacker Magazine award to Big Sky
I can understand Backpacker's choice: the Big Sky tents fit into the comfortable norm for the Backpacker readership in what a tent should look like, but also sheds weight. This is probably wha...

Re: ULA Axes
Interesting topic, I hadn't thought of this with the ULA product, but I have seen it a couple times like you said with bikes, mostly on Kestrels.

Re: Re: Re: are straps necessary on a quilt?
Seems like you and I are going through many of the same decisions, I'm looking at Jacks 'R' Better and other quilts too. If you aren't too unhappy with you'r new bivy, that tak...

Replacing shock cord with non-elastic?
In my long-term search for my first truly light-weight pack, I've spent a lot of time looking at the Gossamer Gear Mariposa Plus and the Six Moon Designs Starlite. The one downside I see to th...

Re: Re: Re: Ti Goat Bivy Bug Net
What kind of sleeping pad do you use? With the net under my insul mat max thermo 3/4, it seems to close off well for me.

Re: Re: Bivy Help
I would have to disagree with this, I too recently purchaced a large Ti Goat Bivy, but DWR, not Epic. I think the headnet is the best available for an ultralight bivy for warm conditions (when the...

Re: Re: Sleeping bag care tip
I don't think I'm fancy enough to have a humidifier, and my heater doesn't exactly pump out super hot air, so I can leave it on and it ends up bone dry. I suppose not everybody would ...

Sleeping bag care tip
I don't know if people already do this, but I've started taking my damp/compressed sleeping bag out after a trip, zipping it up, and putting the hood opening over the floor vent of my heate...

Re: Re: Re: How about 2 packs?
I've read all the reviews I've found,I was just curious if anybody had input about the Gossamer Gear pack in terms of thru-hiking or my body/needs/gear. Thank's for the perspective on ...

Jacks R Better No Sniveller quilt
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...

I have used this pack a total of 17 days this summer, including 15 on a thru-hike of the Tahoe Rim Trail. The pack volume and design suit my needs perfectly for carrying up to 5 days worth of food,...

Titanium Goat Basic Bivy
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 ...

REI Minimalist Bivy Sack
During the time I have used this bivy, I have experienced no condensation, even when the single wall tent I was in was dripping. I have not found a great solution to getting the bug-mesh away from my...

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...

I found this pad to be extremely comfortable (better than the bed I slept on through college), but it doesn't take much to get a chill through it. I bought a Gossamer Gear Thinlight pad for insulation...
