Re: Snow Peak Titanium Trek bowl

Re: HS Tarptent Sublight
Looks like you have a leak! If the review I saw holds up, you might have a lot of new customers. Me included. Waiting patiently. Info leak that is, the tent is reportedly waterproof.

Re: How do I make a hood? Any patterns?
Sewing is not my strong suit, but I find circles particularly difficult to make. In prior attempts, I can not get the material to comply with anything other than a very rough, exposed seam allowan...

REI Minimalist Bivy Sack
I picked up a REI Minimalist Bivy in size long to try out. The long also has added girth, which is great. I slept in it twice in my backyard proving ground. Both times were clear, low humidity night...

Black Diamond Spire Elliptical Trekking Poles
I was intrigued by these initially because of the ellipical shafts - definitely seem stronger/stiffer on the principle axis than comparable weight round poles. I was willing to live with the 20 oz pe...
