Changes
A few new changes: - Removed the back panel foam from my Jam pack. By packing clothes & my quilt against my back I can't perceive any loss in comfort without the foam panel, so that'...

Simmer
The simmering function of the FeatherFire seems really handy for baking. It would be interesting to see how they cook at full blast. The aluminum tin seems to do a great job reflecting the heat. Th...

Baking Muffins - MmmMmmmHmmm!
Today I decided to give baking some muffins a try in my kitchen, rather than experiment with something like this in the field. To cook the muffins, I used my FeatherFire alcohol stove (45g), a h...

Wmns Down MidLayer
I recently ordered Montbell U.L. Down Inner Parka's for my wife but the fit wasn't good. Typical of Montbell, it was too short yet loose in the torso. She wasn't happy with the length o...

Wow...your pack, shelter and sleeping gear are really light. These sections combine for just 5.3lbs. For comparison, my pack/shelter/sleeping gear weighs 6.6lbs, yet my total pack weight is 10.5lbs...

2 yards
You can put me down for 2 yards. I don't care about the color (since it's for stuff sacks).

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...
