Re: Very Tempermental-Pun Intended
"I have a Brunton canister that came with the gauge. I thought it would be handy, but... I tried it at room temperature with the hottest my home faucet would produce. My results were that a...

Weight
It's too bad these shoes have gotten heavier, because otherwise they would be appealing. I could probably live with a less durable shoe if it was significantly lighter, grippier and more comfor...

Cuben Tent
Amazing tent. Anyone have any comments after using this for the past year or two? Is it holding up? Delighting you?

Re: New Golite Peak
"I don't think the Golite Peak is being geared towards the uber UL niche backpacking market that frequents this forum" I'm not sure who this pack is aimed for but it seems like...

Cuben
An option with cuben packs is to put a durable pack cover on if you've got some serious backwacking planned. In my mind, it makes sense to buy a lighter cuben pack and then add a durable cover ...

Did you happen to see how much weight you save by leaving the belt and hip pockets at home?

Cuben
Old thread, but I wanted to reiterate that I'd love to see cuben versions of some of the TarpTent products. $400-$500 for a tent may be a lot more than current TarpTent offerings, but it's ...

Golite Peak
It's an interesting design and it has a lot of potential. I think we should be careful to criticize Golite until we know how the weight breaks down. Here is my guess: Removable Backpad: 1...

Gizmo
The Gizmo looks nice, but I'd rather they used a single AA battery instead of 2 AAA's. You'd get about 50% more battery life for virtually the same weight. It would also be nice to see ...

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)

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 ...
