Ultra 20
As mentioned, the 2009 GoLite Ultra 20 is a great choice. It's 19oz and it should be plenty warm enough for your needs. It's also generously wide so it's not hard to wrap it around your...

HP vs. CR2
I owed a CR2 and it was my primary tent last year. The carbon fiber poles of the CR2 seem great. I wouldn't be worried about these breaking unless you're using in extreme winter conditions....

March 18, 11:44pm

The Hubba Hubba HP is lighter than the regular Hubba Hubba but I don't think it's because of the inner fabric as you would initially think. The HP uses a lighter nylon for the fly (20D vs. ...

Thanks for the sock info. I'm going to try a pair of these on next time I'm near a shop that sells them.

Do you wear socks in these while hiking? Or do they work okay barefoot inside? It seems like you might get some chaffing without socks. I'm interested in giving the KSO's or Bikila's a ...

2 NeoAir's sounds like a pretty thin gear list. Maybe the boxes could be used to fabricate some sort of a shelter.

I haven't tried this, but supposedly you can cut fish into small stirfry sized pieces and then boil it for 5 minutes or so to poach the fish. Then drain the water and season. One good way to ea...

I never by stuff if the sellers insists on using a courier (UPS/FedEx/DHL etc) on anything coming into my country (Canada) because of the outrageous fees. All goods coming in to Canada are subject ...

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 ...

I've got the original Reed pants (4oz in a size medium) and they are prefect rain pants for UL hiking. They've been adequately durable, totally waterproof and light. I don't want ankle zip...

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...
