40% Patagonia + Free shipping has a good Patagonia sale going on right now. There's a lot in stock including down jackets etc. It's pretty much all 30% off and then you can toss a 10% off coupon on top of that...

This is probably a dumb question, but it theoretically possible to also use this stove with white gas or kerosene like MSR's WhisperLite Universal? I'd love to have this option. Obviousl...

FYI, has a good Patagonia sale on right now. It's 30% off and you can toss a coupon code on top (TP1420) for another 10% off. They have both the Hooded Down Sweater (Black, Med) an...

2 person cooking
My wife and I use a similar setup (sidewinder cone) but with a 1.3L pot. In my opinion, this pot size is really the minimum for two person cooking. The next size up (1.9L) would be a lot nicer to u...

Interesting stuff on the Cerium SL. Sounds nice. Is Arcteryx gonna stop using synth insulation in select "vulnerable" areas of their down jackets and just switch to DriDown? It's n...

Most of the Zebralights are actually available with only a modest delay. Zebralight endeavours - albeit poorly - to keep their lights in stock. When they are out of stock, or "backordered&...

A lot of people, including me, like 'Mids. They've been used on some major coastal packrafting trips (ie. Hig & Erin). Mids tend to provide a lot of protected space and they're e...

Mountain Laurel Designs Cuben DuoMid
The DuoMid is the best shelter for solo hikers. Don't be misled by the "Duo" in its name - you could cram two hikers in here but it's poorly suited for that (ie. no vestibule space, ...

Spark-Lite Fire Starter (Survival Gear - BPL Gear Shop)

BPL FireLite Firestarter
I love this FireLite Mini. It's the only thing that I 100% trust to start a fire. With a mini Bic you can run out of gas, be at too high of an altitude, get it wet or get it oily. Matches can ...

Baladeo 22 Grams Knife
This knife is a brilliant design. Every part of it is functional and the result is a lot of knife for just 22g (or 24.3g as mine as actually weighs). When I opened the (very nice) box and first played...
