REI Tents
I'd be careful with the Quarterdome vs. TarpTent comparisons. It's always easy to compare a single wall tent (Double Rainbow) to a double wall tent (Quarterdome) and list great points a...

There's been some white MLD cuben products, such as early cuben DuoMids.

So 1.9oz gets me the unit + a USB cord to charge it, right? Then if I want to charge something else, I don't need anything if my iPad Mini already has a cord to connect to a USB socket right...

Durcell CEF27 - Gen 1 vs. Gen 2.
I purchased the new CEF27 today (Duracell Ion Speed 4000 Charger) with the hope that it would be lighter and ideally faster than the gen 1 Duracell CEF27. Turns the speed is the same (1550mA fo...

AA's on a Thru Hike
My wife and I have been back and forth on the bounce box, but we're currently leaning towards not using one. There's a lot of advantages, but it also forces us to plan around the post offic...

That's good info and a good idea about the cover. Thanks. It looks like 4 batteries just takes twice as long as 2 because the max output is 3100mA, so when you toss in 4 the per battery cha...

Wall Charger
Thanks for the help guys. I'm reluctantly starting to conclude that I can buy a charger than is either lighter or faster, but not both. There are a lot of fast claims on chargers, but even ...

UL Down Jacket
It's definately less warm than the Pata Down Jacket (in my subjective experience). It's a good June-August jacket but a little light for shoulder season use. For May and Sept-Oct you'll...

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)
I have this kit and the FireLite Mini kit. This sparker is a bit lighter than the FireLite Mini but I don't trust this sparker 100% like I do the FireLite. This sparker doesn't work well wh...

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 ...

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...
