Revelation
Neat review/write up. The pad sleeve does seem like a nice addition. I'll probably be using a pad in mine since I need one anyways as a sit pad and a foot pad when sleeping. Having those sleeve...

Quantam
Thanks for the heads up. This looks interesting. I don't know too much about the state of the market for 'ultralight' spinning rod (it's been years since I've bought a rod). Is ...

I just hang mine inside the tent from one of the fabric loops. If you bring reading glasses then I can see needing a case, but if you're a full time glasses wearer then just hang them when you ...

Packs
Consider the ULA Ohm and Gossamer Gear Gorilla. Both packs have light frames and are under 1.5 lbs.

Klearwater vs. Aquamira
Why does anyone use Aquamira over Klearwater? As far as I can tell, the only difference is that Klearwater can be dripped into the water right away, whereas Aquamira requires you to mix two differe...

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 ...
