Caps
I grabbed some off of my DaKine skiing pack. You'll often see these caps on packs from major manufacturers that use bungee cordage. The stuff sack that came with my G3 climbing skins also had c...

Haven
The Haven looks amazing as I expected. Details on the Haven took so long that I ended up buying a used Refuge X, but if I do go back to a double wall tent this will be it. Regarding the weight i...

FP
You're right that the fill power is not the most likely explanation. The difficulty in measuring loft, baffle design, or the cut of the bag all seem like more plausible explanations.

Drool
A 1.5oz cuben version of the Burn sounds phenomenal. Should be in the 5-6oz range.

Vamp
It's not freestanding, but the Six Moon Designs Vamp appears to be a great tent that meets all of your other requirements and it's super light (27oz) for a double wall tent. I imagine that ...

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 ...

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...
