Contact Ben from Goosefeet and ask him to make you a custom pair of down pants. I've got a pair from him and they are great. He'll custom make them to you...

It kills me to list this, but I need a larger pack for an upcoming 12 day unsupported trip and to keep things happy at home I need to keep my pack ownership down to one pack at a time. For sale ...

With a 6 lbs base weight and 10lbs total load, you don't need a framed pack. The Peak sounds like it is proper size and type of pack for your load. However, you might want to look at some light...

Nicely organized. One idea that has been working well for me is to replace the pot lifter with a pair of wool gloves (which don't melt like nylon or polyester). I use a pair of Icebreaker 3...

I made myself a pair of rain mitts a few weeks ago with 30d silnylon and elastic wrists. Easy to do and 16g (0.6oz) for a pair.

Rain Pants
I prefer rain pants. Obviously they'll keep you drier than just wind pants, and I find the lower breathability to be a non-issue since my legs don't perspire much in the temps I normally hi...

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, ...

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 ...
