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'...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.

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...
