Re: Windpro
And what temps are we dealing w/regarding winter? I'm thinking something down to 0ºF or below to replace my whisperlite. Or is that pushing the limits of inverted remote canisters?

Voile XLM and BCA Tour weights
My Voile XLM is also claimed at 16oz but is actually 18oz. Seems like both of the lightest metal shovels are a bit heavier than manufacturers' claims. Or maybe mine is an one-off.

Re:MLD DuoMid vs. Scarp 1 for snow?
If on snow, then the floorless takes the cake IMO. Gives a margin for error regarding sinking of the floor vs the sides regarding a "full" tent such as the Scarp. Tension on the sides w...

Montbell Extremely Light Down Jacket
MB just barely missed the mark w/this one. What is nearly a perfect rendition of the UL jacket, is missing some sort of waist hem retention. Whether it is an UL drawcord hem or elastic (like on the ...
