You have a good idea, but I still think Polypro is the future. Compared to Merino, it's signficantly lighter, drys about 40% faster (as per BPL article) and you could add stuff to it to elimina...

Re: Oopsie on the Driducks
"Don't really need the sack, come to think of it." I roll up my DriDucks and use a hair elastic (0.05oz) to keep each piece rolled.

Yup, just use a bandana or clothing item to filter the water if it's really dirty. Put the bandana over the mouth of the bottle and then scoop the water with your cup or pot and pour it in. ...

I'm with John on this. You can sell some of your gear and buy lighter stuff without spending extra money. You should be able to buy a TarpTent Moment (28oz) with the money you get from selling ...

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)

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...
