Re: Re: Neoair R-factor
I would agree that the R value is about right at 2.5. I was fairly comfortable at 5c/40f but I think that much lower would not be. Another stab at the BA IAC, no way Jose that thing is 4.1. Mayb...

Re: McMurdo Fast Find PLB model 210
Nice that you guys are able to get going with these! The Canadian distributor is still organizing the distribution here so there is no way to get one yet it seems. Caution: You must register ...

Re: Re: Re: A gripe with Gear Swap posts
Rule of thumb...People will always offer 3/4 of your asking price. Must be something in the human DNA that makes us all want a 25% discount even though it's already cheap!!

Mountain Equipment Co-op (Canada)

Big Agnes Insulated Air Core Pad

Petzl e+LITE
This light is real beauty. At one ounce even, it's kinda like having a one pound sleeping bag. This is clearly the Western Mountaineering Hilite of headlights. Not perfect, but perfectly good and ...
