Re: Re: Six Moons Skyscape X Sleeve
Yeah, that's what I thought. Maybe I've found it, but just can't open it. This is what I see: A strip made out of Cuben, right next to the seam, on the rear side of the tent (the other ...

Six Moons Skyscape X Sleeve
I bought a Skyscape X tent last fall, and I'm just now getting around to setting it up. I'm having a hard time finding the sleeve where the spreader bar is supposed to go. It is my understa...

Re: Canon S100
I'm probably not the best guy to ask for advice on cameras. Much of my information is based on what I've heard from other, more knowledgeable folks. I started by looking at all the little c...

Re: Canon S100
Thanks David, that helped. I think I have answers to my questions: 1) It appears that there is no way to completely turn off the symbols. Bummer. 2) Still don't have a solid understanding...

Using My Canon Powershot S100
I just bought a new Canon Powershot S100. My previous camera, which I lost in the mountains recently, was a fairly simple point and shoot (Pentax WPI). I'm having trouble going from the limited...

Re: Film Camera
It is my understanding that one of the big advantages of film cameras is that you can get outstanding quality for very little weight. Film is film. A smaller film camera might have inferior optics ...

Re: Re: Filters??? STILL?
With an inline system, you don't need a second "clean" water bag. You can just get by with your "dirty" bag, a filter and something to connect the two. Just drink right from...

Re: NeoAir XLite vs XTherm
Yeah, both the new XLite and XTherm are warmer than the old NeoAir. The trade-off between the two new ones is weight versus even more warmth. As mentioned, the only reason to keep the current one i...

Gossamer Gear
Another GG review, another five out of five. This time, I broke a pole section (the lower part, or tip). It was my fault (I stepped on it) and not the fault of the pole. A call to customer support (I&...

Pentax Optio WP
I very much like my Optio WPi (6 mp). I have found the waterproof feature to be of much greater value than I originally expected. For winter pictures, it is really handy to set up a picture and not wo...

Eureka Zues II Exo
I bought this tent a few years ago, before I knew about tarp tents. I have been happy with it, but it is a little smaller and heavier than a tarp tent. As a free standing tent, it is more round, which...
