Trekking Poles
I wonder if needing a 31-32" trekking pole for the rear pole will be a problem for many? Users of fixed length poles will be out of luck. GG LT4 poles shorten to 33" which may or may not ...

The green tinted cuben is looking good. I'm still not a fan of the floor though. A 30D bathtub silnylon floor would be big appeal to me.

I'm glad I ordered LT4's last week from GG so I avoided the embarrassment of being 14 hours late to this thread.

Poncho Tarp
I've said it before, but the 2010 GoLite Poncho Tarp is alive and significantly lighter than ever. This is a great piece of gear for the UL/SUL hiker. It's sad to lose others (ie. Reed pant...

Nikwax is a waxed based DWR. It works pretty good but it only lasts about 1/2 as long as a synthetic based DWR like most others (ie. Grangers). In general, I prefer the spray on DWR's and th...

I would use 1.1oz silnylon which actually weighs about 1.4oz/yrd.

Nope. Here's the thread where Andy sold it to me (although this thread doesn't prove I bought it since I didn't even post in this thread). I'm selling it because I ended up going an...

I'm selling a used GoLite poncho tarp that I got from Andrew Skurka a couple months ago. I've used it one night and Andrew used it a bit. There is no damage or signs of wear that I can 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, ...

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...
