Off days & Thru's
You are worried that God would think negatively on you for hiking through his creation on Sundays? I think he is more upset about the loggers and strip miners destroying things 7 days a week. I say...

Why was I cold? The legs
Simon, I can not be sure about your situation of course, but I learned the hard way that you need to insulate all areas of the body, preferably starting with an equalized base layer of say.. wool 2...

Best solo and dual lightweight Ti cookware
EJ, I found 600ml to be too small for my solo kit as I usually make ramen or other large reyhdrated meals, so my Snowpeak Trek 900 is my solo kit, and the Trek 1400 is my dual kit. I use my small...

Queston for Ye Titanium Mug/Pot Users
Ben, I get white calcified deposits on my nonstick aluminum pots as well; different water source of course but I think it is mineral based.

2007 Alpkit Carbonlite Trekking Poles REVIEW
Sorry to hijack this thread but maybe I can spare some of you some headaches; I also spent a lot of time fussing and researching twist-lock poles. Recently I switched to Flick-lock Black Diamonds a...

Decent synthetic jacket ... price vs. weight
Eric, echoing what the others said, scour google.com and never pay retail. I got a thermawrap for 90 and a DAS parka for 150 doing this. Here's a tip; set a google search to what you want, the...

Looking for a Down Jacket
Ben, I second the vote for the Montbell UL down inner parka. The hood should add a few degrees of warmth over the UL down inner jacket..? Its still not available here in Japan! http://www.e-om...

Axe length vs weight savings
Just to follow up; after an epic last summer(!) I will never go into the permanent snowpack alpine environment without an axe again. For belay/anchor purposes I think I'll cut my 210 down to 60...

5.11 gear Tactical nylon pants
These pants weigh in at 720grams, that's a pound and a half, folks. I bought them as winter hiking pants because I do not need the convertable feature of my other pants in winter, but I found thes...

Cilogear Schoolbag
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...

tiny BIC lighter (the cute one)
I carry various types of fire making gear for my own educational and practice purposes, but I always have one of these 11 gram bics taped to my keychain or in my pot set. They won't flame when soa...

SnowClaw Backcountry Shovel Racer Backcountry Shovel
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
I own the 120cm version, but aside from the dimensions and weight, it is identical. This pad is not remarkable on its own, but as part of the Montbell sleep system, it is. The toggles mate with the...

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.
