SMD Shelters
Aaron - I prefer a floorless shelter on snow. I've used a tarp over a trench and the Gatewood. I like floorless on snow so that I can shovel down a foot or more for added insulation. On wint...

Why do women prefer a tent?
"I'm buying Kathleen's old one for my lady." Hah! Roger - I had originally bought that bug net to go with the Gatewood and possibly even a "real" tarp down the road....

Why do women prefer a tent?

Golite Ultra plus Neoair
Dan - here's a visual of the Golite Ultra quilt on top of a GG thinlight (1/8") on top of a Neoair from a trip this weekend. They're all separate layers, and everything stayed put jus...

Botach Tactical Customer Service
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...

Golite Paradox pants
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...
