Re: re: Drik Ducks

"Get some of these wool glove from moab sports." Those do look great. I imagine that any wool gloves will work for handling pots right? I'd like to find some locally because shipping...

Changes - DriDucks!
I can't believe no one enlightened me to the wonders of DriDucks yet. I came across them recently and bought a set on eBay for $11. They arrived today and they are awesome! 4.1oz for the pants ...

More Tests
My new Evernew 1.3L Non-Stick Ti pot arrived today so I spent about 3 hours making a caldera cone for it. The results were disappointing. With the new cone, I boiled a pint indoors on my stove t...

Tip 2
Another tip is to get all that gear that you never use out of the way. I have a huge stuff sack full of gear that I'm almost never ever going to use (ie. the 3 lbs flashlight I got for a presen...

Tip
One strategy that is working well for me is to have camping specific items as much as I can.....items like toothpaste, toothbrush etc. By having a specific toothbrush for hiking, you can keep it...

Serious Winter Tents
I think what Roger is saying is that any serious winter tent needs to be staked to work properly. So while the tents you guys have mentioned are free standing, you would want to stake them down if ...

I couldn't resist playing with the FeatherFire...it's such a neat stove. I boiled 2 more pints tonight. I wanted to see how my stove would fare without a windscreen in dead calm weather, so...

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 ...

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...
