Re: Thanks!
"Are those closed cell torso length pads actually comfortable?" Comfortable? I would say no but you can probably get used to using them if you are tired enough or just get used to it...k...

Savings
It's a lot of weight saved, but no it's probably not going to significantly affect your hike one way or the other because your overall load is going to be quite light either way. If you'...

Re: baking muffins
what's the purpose of the rock inside the pan? The bottom of pot can get extremely hot (since it contacts the flame directly) so it would probably burn the bottom of the muffins if you set the...

Whew....I'm glad the pants sold so quick. I was dangerously close to dropping more money on gear. I saw these pants within minutes of you posting them and I've been holding myself back from...

Suggestions
1) You may want to do something about those hiking pants. 17.5oz is really heavy, even for traditional pants. I have Patagonia hiking pants (GI 2 pants) that weigh 11.5oz and I want to replace them...

Silicon vs. Aluminum
Wow...nice muffins! So how does silicon stack up against aluminum? It seems like the silicone would be more durable and less likely to get damaged in your pack, but it also looks heavier. The Si...

Stuff Sacks
A bit off topic, but do your MLD cuben stuff sacks ship out quickly? Or does the 4-7 week wait also apply to these? Thanks.

Day Hike
I normally don't bring a stove, but it's not a bad idea. I would bring an alcohol stove rather than a canister because it's quite a bit lighter. With a canister stove, you are carrying ...

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...
