Other Brands
You asked about other brands. The Six Moon Designs offerings are also nice. Some great new packs with little feedback from users so far, but for shelters, the SMD SkyScape series is very nice. T...

Cookie Tins
Genius. I wanted to mention Gary's post on burly cuben and rodents. This is backed up by others, including a reference, I believe, on one of Wired's trail journals. The 1.X oz. cuben is ...
