headlamp mammut lucido
To respond to the OP, I have a Mammut Lucido TR1 (the lantern/headlamp combo) that I really like. It's my wife's favorite of the three we have (the others are a BD EOS (the newer model) and...

Headlamps (zebralights?)
does anyone have experience with the Zebralight headlamps. At $64, they aren't cheap, but the wide range of options look like it should offer a good fit for most hikers who need a serious light...

systems for hiking clothes
I agree, think of ALL your clothes as a system. A lightweight insulating baselayer (wool is my preference, but to each his own) -- top and bottom -- would not only keep you warm on the trail if nee...

Caldera cone
In looking at Trail Designs website and at reviews, it's hard to tell how large a pot needs to be to fit everything inside. I've got a tiny Isobutane Snow Peak and a couple of different pot...
