Neat link. It's pretty much impossible to get pure or close to pure ethanol here in Canada. Unfortunately the cheapest shipping option to Canada is $56 for one gallon. I guess I'll keep usi...

Yeah it's a lot of fun. This season has been great too. The annual average snowfall is 403" and we're at 420" already with over 2 months to go. That's Whistler in my profile p...

Winter SUL
In terms of difficulty, winter camping under 10 lbs seems about as hard as summer camping under 5lbs. Both are do-able but only with considerable compromise. Perhaps 10lbs is a bit too easy though....

It's a bit heavier than a regular stuff sack, but if you get a dry sack instead of a regular style stuff sack then you can roll it up to adjust it's size to fit the amount of clothes you ha...

Yup, lots of good hiking up here :) It's great how varied the terrain is. Vancouver Island is so lush with huge trees, cliffs, waterfalls etc and then just North of Vancouver you've got ...

This is definately a neat item. It makes me want to get into fly fishing.

I'm surprised MLD isn't already using caps like this. It seems like a nice finishing touch that is virtually weightless. I do appreciate the new bungee clips that MLD is using though. I ima...

Lunar Duo
The main difference between the Haven and Lunar Duo is that the the Haven is a full double wall design instead of single wall. So that protects you from condensation on the inside of the outer wall...

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 ...

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...
