Re: sold
Cool...thanks for keeping us updated. Had my wife not dragged me out the door for dinner this would have been mine :) From now on I'm going to be on BPL 24/7. Hopefully my wife doesn'...

10oz
Take the MLD Revelation (6.2oz), add ULA's suspension hoop found in the Ohm (+1.2oz) and the necessary materials to hold it (maybe +1oz) and then add 1.9oz/yd Dyneema gridstop on the bottom and...

Idea:
Here's an idea for ULA: Come out with a 1.5 cuben pack to compete with MLD's Revelation and Zpacks Blast series. It would also be neat to see a cuben/dyneemaX hybrid back that uses cuben fo...

Leaking
Rain gear that leaks is terrible. I've got some Sierra Designs pants that leak huge right through the membrane. If I sit down on a wet surface, I get a wet butt almost instantly. Obviously I do...

NF Anorak
FWIW, The North Face Triumph Anorak is claimed to weigh 160g or 5.6oz. That is pretty darn light if it's true. My DriDucks size Medium rain jkt weighs 168g or 5.8oz so the NF is indeed light...

Cuben
Yeah cuben's not breathable. I would still use it for pants though as breathability is less important there. A cuben rain jacket would be of more limited purpose, but still neat to have. I woul...

Revelation
Well keep me in mind if your upcoming trips are over and you're ready to sell. What are these hipbelt pockets you added? Did MLD make you some cuben hipbelt pockets? That would be great.

2010 Model
I talked to Ron about the Revelation and he said they are doing some tweaks to it and the 2010 model will come out in roughly Feb/March but he's not really sure. That sure is a long time to...

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 ...

I've got the original Reed pants (4oz in a size medium) and they are prefect rain pants for UL hiking. They've been adequately durable, totally waterproof and light. I don't want ankle zip...

I'll be the first one to give this jacket 5 stars. Marmot has made a number of changes to this jacket over the years so criticisms of the earlier models are no longer relevant. My Essence is t...

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...
