Tasco Monocular
My family had several of these for day hikes, the zoo, etc. I think there was a higher end model like Bushnell or Bausch & Lomb. That said, there is a knock-off of the Tasco Dale put up above...

Tarp or Mid Shelter Maybe?
Why not find a used mid or a large flat tarp to fit the both of you? If she's a heavy sleeper, she won't mind. Not to mention, for winter, I'd think the Mid-style shelter would do bet...

Skyscape X Spreader Bar Sleeve
Great looking and creative solution. I had a Skyscape Trekker, and I found that it was easiest to always leave the bar in. It rolled up and packed the same and made for slightly faster set up and...

Chains in Sierras
For most trips, just carry, and know how to use, chains; but you won't need. For Yosemite. You MUST have chains in the winter - as of 2008 this included 4WD/AWD vehicles. I digress, but one of ...

Excellent Six Moon Designs Deals
The Skyscape X is in stock, and the Skyscape Trekker (seriously great solo shelter) is a steal for $180. I am guessing the Scout model is only $100. No better intro to the world of UL packing than...

Re: Re: Re: sieko
No. It is the original band. I mentioned above, they offer these in colors. They are all military / police specific (khaki, Navy, Black, etc.). They ripped off the NATO band, but did it a dis-s...
