Pick It Apart - Gear List Re-Visited
I appreciate the input I received earlier; I now have a pack weight at 14.3 pounds (Not including food, fuel and water) and a Skin-out weight just over 20 pounds. While making a few adjustments I...

Hi Jason, Yes, I use one 16 inch section doubled over per guyloop exactly like in the picture linked above. I guess if you girth hitch a number of the 16 inch pieces for one continuous length, th...

Guyline Settings
I have only used the single length of guyline when pitching my Oware 2.5 tarp for maximum height. I too had difficulty trying this at lower heights. In higher wind conditions I do one of three thin...

Umbrella Use
I always bring an umbrella and I use a GoLite Dome. I feel the extra 9 ounces I carry with that umbrella is well worth it. I also use two collapsible trekking poles (mostly for rhythm and shelter s...

That's hilarious! It would be extremely funny at the end of a long day. It might also help those that are visually challenged to have a "night light" on their spoon; so they are sure to get that la...

Photon Light Proton Personal Flashlight
I would give the Proton a 4 out of 5 score primarily because of its high cost ($69). It is an excellent light if you need to do any emergency signaling at night or if you need a high intensity beam fo...

Six Moon Designs Lunar Solo
I like the simplicity in the concept of the design. It is a combination of bivy sack and single wall tent with plenty of room that weighs in at 25 ounces. The bathtub floor and netting along the floor...

I have to say this is not the worst pack I ever had, but close to it. I do like the simplicity, but the straps are just killer. With 18 pounds I can carry on one shoulder and switch sides, but when ...
