1st experience with windpro in the snow
Hey guys, I got my windpro out in the snow finally during a winter camping trip, and it worked OK... It lit fine and would burn fine, but it seemed each time I turned my back to get more snow, ...

Re: Revenge of the Nikonos?
That would be great ... for diving. But as I understand how Nikonos lenses work, they'll only focus under water. Why we need goggles, and why there's air space between a normal camera and d...

Re: Re: BPL Absaroka Pack
I like the name "absaroka" but I have one question; will it be available in a more LNT, subdued color? I look forward to seeing more.

Re: Canon S90
Thanks for the review of the S90 - it seems like a great little package overall. But you mention video in the pro section, while most reviews dislike that it doesn't have HD quality video (ei...

Without coverage of OR winter this year on BPL, does anybody have another website they'd recommend with coverage? Thanks.

Re: MLD Lightsnow Gaitors
I have a pair I ordered this fall for snowshoeing, and so far they've been great. I really like the pull-over design vs. zipper or velcro - one less point of failure in my mind. I also asked...

Re: Re: rotating the Windpro connector
Thanks Michael, My stove did indeed light up when I got home, so no problems with the modification. Now I'll be tinkering with a stand for the canister, likely just a rubber band and 3 Y-sta...

Re: Re: Re: Re: rotating the connector
Hi Roger, I ended up completely unscrewing the hose from the valve, then rotating the crimped brass piece independent of the brass nut roughly 180 degrees. I didn't hit 180 exactly but came clo...

Re: Re: rotating the connector
Thanks Roger, I have the hose disconnected from the valve, should I be able to rotate the two brass pieces separately to flip it upside down once it's tightened back down? EDIT: Never mind, ...

Hi guys, I just got a Windpro I plan to use for winter, but the adapter connection is really tight, how did you loosen it and make the adjustment? Thanks.

Mountain Hardwear Phantom 32 F, 800 down
The phantom 32 was my first light-weight item, and is still my favorite. Loft is great, the hood fits great, and there is enough room for me to add a down jacket or vest. The one downside is the .85 ...

Golite Den 2
Similar to tarptent designs, but no vestibule and made out of Golite's heavy-duty silnylon, so it weighs a little more (3.5 lbs). I have used it in Tahoe National Forest where it was used for me and a...
