Re: Re: 2010 Products

Nice looking pack. That 'carbon grey' dyneemaX is sharp. I'm still hoping for a 2010 Revelation. I'd like to see some full cuben rain pants too...the chaps are sweet but I'd ...

It should sell well on eBay. Thermarest's are quite popular so I bet it'll sell for a decent price.

UL Down
I can stay warm to about 30F walking the dog in a similar setup. If I was sitting down in camp though it would probably good to about 40F. Do you really carry just one baselayer when you hike? If y...

Re: MontBell Thermawrap Parka Hood Adjust
If you simply cut the existing hood cinch cord about 2" below the adjuster (ie. cut as low as you can), then you can slip a regular cord lock onto the line. Next, tie a simple knot just below ...

I'm currently using some 3oz wool gloves as both gloves and my pot handling method. I've recently been seeing some merino wool gloves around that are much thinner and lighter (ie. 1 to 1.5...

I don't know how he can pick a winning mattress (Prolite 4 small) when he didn't even inflate the NeoAir.

This hood adjuster design sounds like the same thing that Montbell is added to their recently updated U.L. Down Inner Parka about 2 months ago. And yeah they are a pain to use. Impossible to do wit...

Thanks a lot Richard. That is really interesting and useful info. The sleeping pad sure makes a big difference, with the comfort rating jumping from 28F to 44F with the NeoAir instead of an R5 ...

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 ...
