talk to Montane
I'm sure Montane would like to trade with the US. Just start emailing them telling them what you'd like them to do as a company, and potentially mention they might revise their patterns to be a be...

Hi I'm sure it's way too late to reply now. I wish BPL had more sofisticated Forums, so I could easily find my posts and replies. I've never owned the Moonstone bag. I think all bag temp ra...

silly
Slightly silly comment but I keep thinking about how to use Air Core pads like Big Agnes and Insul Mat to transport gear and body across lakes etc. This would be hella funny to ride on water.

Hi More importantly to me than the rating system would be a simple summary and conclusion when I don't have time to read pages of technical literature. I find some of the reviews on BPL excessi...

Petzyl Myo XP
I owned one of these but had to send it back as the electronics developed a fault - kept flashing. Still preferred it to my Black Diamond Icon headlamp. But a new 30% brighter & longer battery...

You can always just rest the lid on top of the pan while cooking if the stiffness is an issue.

Sport EYZ ultralight sunglasses
Sorry to cast a downer on this but the plastic pot it comes in is too small. Incredibly hard to get it back in. And if you can it wraps too tight and after not too long creases and then cracks the l...

Rab Carrington Quantum Elite Top Bag
I've had one of these for years and although the quality and price were good I always felt Rab / O.D. made a mistake by just leaving a sleeping pad shaped uninsulated patch in the base. To put ...

The North Face Propel
I have the 05 version white-ish, now yellow-ish after my girlfriend washed it. It's seen a hell of a lot of use, not sure if it's lost some loft over time but I don't consider it warm e...

Aloksak O.P 12.5 x 20"
I almost dispise Aloksaks for their lack of durability. Why pay so much for something that hardly lasts more than a few uses!

Big Agnes Insulated Air Core Pad
First pad was a bit slippery, too slippery for my girlfriend. Much better design than POE Max Thermo as has proper chamber walls rather than just top welded to bottom. Not had trouble with leaks...

Teva X-1 Shoe
I had high hopes for these. Confirm they are very light and airy. But too tight across the toes for me. Why do some shoes look like pointed pebble s at the toe?? My feet don't look like that. ...
