Re: Alpinlite Gear Bug Tent
Someone needs to finish their raking... Edit: Nevermind. Bad joke. Just realized that is some sort of pine/mulch mix for the spring. Very nice little bug shelter though. What will you b...

Re: Marmot Precip Jacket reviews ???
I bought a 2006 model on sale for about $30 two years ago. I washed it probably about 5 times before I noticed any problems with it this past fall. I still have yet to reapply any DWR. It does...

Re: Need Advice on Which Headlamp?
I have a BD headlamp that is 52 grams (~1.8 oz) with lithium batteries included in the weight. It had excellent battery life, and it worked fine for me for all uses; but it fritzed on me after...

Re: GG Tite-Lite Titanium Stakes 10 pack
Evan, In my experience the Gossamer Gear stakes are fantastic. The design they are selling now, though, appears to be slightly different. The hooks I have from GG look like the ones pictured...

Jeff, I'm not saying that conclusively, as I'm no expert on the matter; but that certainly seems to be the case to me. I've used the Conduit as a daypack without a "frame&quo...

Re: Re: How to pack a frameless pack? (ULA Conduit vs MLD Exodus)

Re: How to pack a frameless pack? (ULA Conduit vs MLD Exodus)

Re: smokey mountain suggestions
