Poncho Sleep system
Bill, I remember the old military poncho's with liners worked real well as a sleep system. I used in the back of my truck a few times. Not familiar with the Cuben material, could you make a liner ...

I also checked the rei.com web site and did not find Bearvault on sale. Like I posted, it was an in-store sale until July 2nd for $59.99. This is also the sale price at Wilderness Dining EDIT - ...

Add Nunatak
I bought an Arc Alpinist with the Pertex Quantum shell. While they did not publish the weight with the PQ fabric, the bag fell right in between the 16 oz .85 Fabric and the 18 oz Microlight at 17 oz.

I like the Helios, it has worked well for me. I also have the Reed pants to go along with the jacket. I'm surprised you chose the Cloudburst over the SMD Lunar, unless you intend to have a partner...

In the Forum "Food, Hydration and Nutrition", there is a subject titled Hydration and water sources. In the threads there, you see a McNett filter straw which may be an alternative, if the CarePlus...

Re: Re: BP lower on side
Paul, When I taught CPR in the military back in the 70's that was not part of the process either, but they also used the precordial thump back then. I also remember the turning to side to prevent ...

Rain Jacket
While you can find lower cost items, if you like the GoLite label (which I do too), you might like to hear / read what Dr. J says about the GoLite Helios at Dr.J’s Lost Coast Report I like the f...

BP lower on side
There must be something to this. I recently completed my CPR re-certification. They have you roll the revived individual onto their right side with the left leg bent to keep them in that position. ...

GTX shoes
Matt, You may want to look at Mountain Laurel Design's site and read what their team has to say about goretex shoes. In short, they take forever to dry out and they hold sweat in, which can lead t...

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 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 ...
