Re: Na on the MSR
Tim: "MSR states that the floor is 50 inches wide. That a crock of crap." There's been a lot of trashing of MSR for this, when in reality MSR does not claim the floor to be 50"...

I'm starting to plan this JDF trip. Looks like it's going to be October 12th - 16th or so. As per Mike's recommendations, I'm planning to spend nights (in this order) at: 1) Be...

Bombproof
Yes it's bombproof initially...not so much 10 years later. Floors see a lot of abrasion so the waterproofing wears pretty fast....unless you're using a ground sheet but that's the heavi...

Floor
From the TarpTent FAQ: Q: Should I order a groundsheet? A: It depends on the conditions you expect to encounter and your style of camping. The sewn-in flooring is remarkably tough and does not ...

Re: Tarptent v.s MSR
"A 10,000mm rating on the floor is completely, utterly unnecessary unless you decide to set up your tent in a puddle. It is a marketing tool by MSR to make sure that potential consumers are no...

Re: Tarptent vs MSR
"Most people carry a ground cloth with a Tarptent for protection from holes, not water." Really? It seems fairly easy to almost eliminate the chance of holes by carefully removing any ...

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...
