Temptress
Tempting... Montbell's site does not show U.L. Down Inner vests. Are these EX light inner vests? Or alpine light vests? Or perhaps they used to make U.L. Down Inner vests?

I'll check what size they are tonight. I've got a pair that's lightly used and that I almost never need so I wouldn't mind parting with them. They should be about size 9....definate...

There should be a rule that if you're going to bump your own FS thread, it should be accompanied by at least a small price drop....especially if you feel compelled to bump it merely 7 hours aft...

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 ...

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...
