Weminuche Wilderness Honey Hole
West Ute lake treated us well. Wooley Buggers #12 and Parachute Adams #10 and #12. I highly suggest hitting this lake if you are in the area. It is about 15 miles in from the trailhead with nice...

Big Agnes Seedhouse SL2
At only 2lbs. 14ozs. this is a very light double wall tent. I loved the all mesh walls which helps with ventilation and I never experienced condensation, but there were a few problems I had. Unless ...

Headsweats Race Cap
At under 2.0 oz. this is a great cap for above freezing temps. Coolmax material breathes and wicks away sweat at the same time. The terrycloth headband absorbs almost all of the sweat and is very so...

Patagonia R1 Balaclava
This is the best balaclava that I have found so far. It weighs 2oz's which may be heavy to some but it is far worth its weight. I have used it not only on backpacking trips but everyday in winter...

Backpacking Light Ti Esbit stove
I love this little stove. It fits my SP Trek 700 pot perfectly and I was suprised to find it is very stable. I have had no issues with the rivet. It gets great looks when you pull it out.

Snow Peak Trek 700
As has been mentioned in the forums the lid on the SP 700 is very heavy. Other than that , it fits perfectly in my Firelite Ti esbit stove. The 26oz capacity is plenty and lets me boil water for my ...

I agree with all the great qualities others have mentioned about the Micropuff Pullover, but one thing to know is the cut is rather large. I wear a size Large in all other Patagonia gear but when I g...
