Columbia
Isn't Mountain Hardwear owned by Columbia now? Arc'teryx seems to be all the fashion craze where I'm at. I wouldn't be surprised to see Arcteryx go downhill pretty fast now that ...

Re: Golite Jam vs MLD Prophet
One difference is that the Jam has an internal pad sleeve and pad which gives the Jam a bit of structure. The Jam also has larger hipbelt wings and thicker waist strap webbing. SMD and GG have s...

NiZn
It sounds like these would be heavier than lithium, which is way lighter than NiMH & Alkaline.

Nice to see the reinforced areas for a pack on the Super Mica. Here's a link: http://www.backcountrygear.com/catalog/appareldetail.cfm/MAR624 This is supposedly the 2010 Mica, but there i...

In Stock
They seem to be in stock. I ordered some yesterday and I got a notice that they shipped out today. I just visited the website and it says both sizes are in stock.

Weight Saver
I can see the iPad being a weight saver if you currently carry a lot of books. If the total weight of your books, GPS, notebook, pen etc is equal or greater than 1.5 lbs then the iPad would make se...

Re: 2010 GoLite Quilts
"Does 13 oz for other materials seem a little heavy?" The 2009 Ultra 20 weighed 19oz which included 9.5oz of down and thus 9.5oz of shell. So the down was 50% of the quilts weight. Now...

Montbell
I find I can stay adequately warm while walking down to about 25F, but if I'm sitting around camp I would probably slowly get cold below 40F.

Cheaper
Hmm that is a huge load of cash. That's too bad because 28oz for a full featured, framed, 75 litre pack is really good. Another interesting release in the new child sized light my fire spork...

Nice to see trailspace covering the show. The new Cilogear lightweight mountaineering packs look neat but details are lacking:

Mountain Laurel Designs Cuben DuoMid
The DuoMid is the best shelter for solo hikers. Don't be misled by the "Duo" in its name - you could cram two hikers in here but it's poorly suited for that (ie. no vestibule space, ...

Spark-Lite Fire Starter (Survival Gear - BPL Gear Shop)
I have this kit and the FireLite Mini kit. This sparker is a bit lighter than the FireLite Mini but I don't trust this sparker 100% like I do the FireLite. This sparker doesn't work well wh...

BPL FireLite Firestarter
I love this FireLite Mini. It's the only thing that I 100% trust to start a fire. With a mini Bic you can run out of gas, be at too high of an altitude, get it wet or get it oily. Matches can ...

Baladeo 22 Grams Knife
This knife is a brilliant design. Every part of it is functional and the result is a lot of knife for just 22g (or 24.3g as mine as actually weighs). When I opened the (very nice) box and first played...
