Re: Big Sky Mirage 2P - width of inner at 66 and 72 in. from head?
@Christopher, the Mirage 2P and Revolution 2P are nice tents. Only limiting factor would be that they are narrower at the foot end - perhaps too narrow for wide pads. What's the width of your M...

Re: For a light 2P Freestanding Tent: REI T2, T2 Plus, CS UL3 or other? Comments on T2 appreciated
@Jon, The BA is very nice for the weight, and while narrower head room for its footprint than more vertical walled setups like the T2 and T2+, it’s a very roomy tent overall for the weight. BTW, ...

New REI T2 and T2+ designs radically changed to save weight; Just as strong?
Thanks Andy, that looks like a great use of space. Just found out that the T2 and T2+ design is pretty radically changing for this year, with more of a Big Agnes-like design to save further wei...

Thanks; Any T2 cons? Anything better about T2+ other than size?
Thanks Andy that's good to hear. Any cons? And would you consider going for the slightly larger T2 Plus for any reason? I lean toward the lighter T2 for the weight savings unless there's so...

Going to be doing trips in several locations late spring, summer and fall for which freestanding shelters are much easier (already confirmed this with UL hikers familiar with these areas, so please...

Re: New Cuben Mid: Locus Gear Hapi (11.3oz in stuff sack)
This is the mid I've been waiting for - light enough for one, big enough for two and door access for both occupants. No being stepped on or stepping on someone else to get out. More and better ...

Re: What conditions? Uniqlo model, fill power and weight and link?
Thanks Jim, I'm amazed you could be warm enough in the Montbell UL jacket in NH in Feb. I don't think you mean NH alpine, like the Presidentials. Unless you run hot as a furnace. What&#...

Re: Insurance
Thanks Will. Do you find the synthetic puffy that much better in the wet? Even synthetics I find lose loft and warmth in very high humidity/wet conditions. Synthetic puffies are quicker drying thou...

Winter down jacket for 3 season use, or unbearably warm?
Looking to pick up a hooded down jacket for the Ms. and me. There are good winter options like the Montbell Frost Line Parka (6.7 oz 800 fill, men’s weight 19.7 oz) and good options for 3 season ...

Craig, How do you set up an auto search on eBay? Not familiar with that feature. Did you set up an outside program to crawl eBay? eBay is not only useful for acquiring used and new gear at low...

Patagonia Houdini Wind Jacket
My wife has had such good experience with her Houdini that I'm going to switch over from my Montane Lite-speed. I've used my Montane Lite-Speed in almost all conditions. The material has excellent ...

Montane Lite-speed
I've used my Montane Lite-Speed in almost all conditions. The fit is quite good, with plenty of room to layer underneath, without being way too big. I'm 6 ft 180lbs, 42 chest and I do fine with the ...
