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 ...

I don't find the wrists overly big, but that snap is a clever idea.

I just dug them out and checked....they are indeed size 9. They have only been used for two 5 mile days of hiking and they appear to be in pretty much new condition. I can't see any signs of us...

Tempting... Montbell's site does not show U.L. Down Inner vests. Are these EX light inner vests? Or alpine light vests? Or perhaps they used to make U.L. Down Inner vests?

BPL reported on the 2010 Golite quilts in their recent Outdoor Retailer Market coverage a couple months back. As I recall, the Ultra 20 is getting a bit more downn (11-12oz total I'd guess) and...

I'll check what size they are tonight. I've got a pair that's lightly used and that I almost never need so I wouldn't mind parting with them. They should be about size 9....definate...

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 ...
