Great feedback

Pick it Apart... Please!
I know this list is quite extensive and I can cut down more I am sure. This is a far cry from the 45 pound pack i started with last year. I will be replacing the LL Bean jacket with Cocoon Pull-ove...

What's on your feet
I wear Asolo Fulcrum or Merrell Chameleon. The Asolo's are lighter, but the Merrells have a sturdier sole. If I am going to be biking as well, I bring the Merrells and the Asolo's for just hiking. ...

Good Old Raisins & Peanuts (GORP) is probably the best energy combination listed. Everyone can make their own according to their tastes. Also,if there is an allergy to specific foods, they can of c...

Snickers weight
Sorry, I was being funny about the weight of the Snickers bar and vitamins combination. Of the two bars I compared, the candy bar weighed 3 grams more than the energy bar and you really would need ...

Snickers comparison
I just did a stare-and-compare between the Snickers Marathon Energy Bar and the Snickers Candy Bar. Listing the percentage of Daily Value (DV) based on a 2000 calorie diet. The energy bar has many ...

Speedo Surf Walkers
I use to use my Teva sandals, then went to Speedo Surf Walkers. The Surf Walkers are 9 ounces less than my Teva's, are more like a neoprene shoe with a more plyable rubber sole than the Teva. I lik...

Hydration and water sources
I have read Ray Jardine’s theories on water; where we should stay well hydrated at the rate of “one quart per hour”. While I think that might be somewhat exaggerated, I do agree we need to re...

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 too am a firm believer in gravity filters. It is a blessing that you can still get filtered water with little effort while you complete some other chore around camp. I have used self made gravity fi...

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 ...
