Leaving your gear at camp - theft concerns
I'm going to have to 'fess up sometime or other. Normally, it's not hard to remember the food bag, which I tie at the base of a tree. One of the beauties of the Ursack is I don't ...

Leaving your gear at camp - theft concerns
It was obviously not a trail angel supply spot. I had the bag well-hidden and way away from the trail. A reasonable reaction might have been it was an abandoned or forgotten food bag (rightfu...

Leaving your gear at camp - chocoholic concerns
I worry about theft, too, and take everything with me on the day trip except the tent, bag, and insulation (now a pricey Neoair). I also usually leave the Ursack foodbag tied up a few hundred feet...

Inov8 370
I've been wearing these all summer and have been pleasantly surprised. They actually have better traction on steep, rocky scrambles and steep, yucky heather than my leather scramble boots. Wh...

Merino buff
I got mine today, and it is indeed very long. I will probably cut off the extra and hem it to get it to the length of my regular buff. I'm not where I can weigh it right now, but it is a thin...

Travel Light Eat Heavy is back in print
I just ordered a copy from a very nice woman who owns a bookstore in the home town where the author lives. She said it is a reprint of the first edition, and she just got them today. Price is $17...

I had a similar experience to David's. They sent the inferior space blankets, rather than the correct order, took forever to send a return UPS shipping label, and only yesterday admitted to recei...

Boomer's Guide to Lightweight Backpacking by Carol Corbridge
I was very disappointed in this book. Luckily, I didn't buy it but had checked it out from the library. For starters, the book is in major need of copy editing. There are lots of awkward sent...

I'm not sure whether to review these in raingear or softshell clothing, because they're both. They are all-day pants, rather than rain pants to pull on over hiking pants and are made of a fab...
