According the MLD site, MLD is using 0.7oz cuben for their tarps etc. Is this the same stuff (CT2K.08) mentioned earlier at 0.6oz? Or is MLD using slightly heavier cuben now?

Do you know what color of cuben this is? Ie. What is the name of the color? It looks like a great shade of green and I may be calling Cubic Tech to order a bunch soon. Also, do you know if I can...

If you have access to a sewing machine you could make one pretty easily. Grab the fabric from Thru-Hiker or OWFINC, cut it, fold the edges and sew on a few guyout points. If you want to buy one,...

If you're going with cold food, try hummus. My local grocery store has some that you just add cold water to. It's fairly calorie dense (110 cal/oz) and really tasty. It makes you forget you...

I would just grab a bottle of DWR and give the wrists a little spray yourself. That's much easier than mailing it back and waiting weeks for another one.

I'm not sure what thickness the 'pro' stuff is (I see AC Nano, AC 1, AC2 and AC Plus listed) but if you know the thickness you can sometimes find it on eBay by the foot. You see the 1/1...

Bear Bag Cord
For bear bag cord I used 1/16" spectra which you can find on this site. I got mine on eBay.....300 ft for $19. I carry 45 feet which weighs 0.64oz. Sometimes I carry a 0.1oz mini biner as well...

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 ...

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...
