Do you have a target weight in mind? If you want to avoid condensation, the new double wall SMD Vamp may be a good option if you're okay with carrying 27oz. This new shelter is 16oz for the tar...

I just use a rock under my muffin cup. Grab a nice thick (1-1.5") one that is fairly flat and you're good to go.

Yeah I said that Goretex uses PU in the part where I explain about GoreTex....tell me more about Montbell though. Are they using just PTFE?

Lighten Up
I've got the book but you're probably better off to buy it off of Amazon for $4.99 + $3.99 shipping. I'm up in Canada so I couldn't ship it for less than that.

I've got an orphaned Atlas Elektra 6000 series 2 piece adjustable pole laying around if someone needs it. It's 8.97 oz plus an optional basket.

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, ...

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 ...

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...
