Lighten Up
I've got the book but you're probably better off to buy it off of Amazon for $4.99 + $3.99 shipping. I'm up in Canada so I couldn't ship it for less than that.

I've got an orphaned Atlas Elektra 6000 series 2 piece adjustable pole laying around if someone needs it. It's 8.97 oz plus an optional basket.

What size of person would these fit well? I've got some ladies size Large Reed's in the mail, but if those don't fit I'd consider these. I'm 5'11, 160 lbs. I'm guessi...

That X Rocket is a neat design. It would be a winner with trekking poles and cuben.

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, ...

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...
