Fisher Scientific
Hmm....Fisher Scientific does seem to have the good stuff (pure ethanol) and they are in Canada. I'll contact them about selling to me but I'm skeptical because you need to call them if you...

Weights Up
Good to hear from Brian. If the '09 products are indeed unchanged for 2010, I wonder why many packs are up several ounces in weight when you add them to the cart. I wonder if this is a glit...

I'm 72" and find the regular to be a good size.

Here in Canada, the price for booze is crazy. A 26'er bottle of Bacardi 151 rum goes for $35 thanks to all the taxes. The same size bottle of methanol can be had for $3.50 which makes my decisi...

Nice interview. It was an interesting read. I'm looking forward to the rest.

The straw looks interesting. It's less than an ounce (24g) and seems to filter everything (including crypto and giardia). Could be the next big thing. I wonder what the price is? It would st...

It seems that 99% pure ethanol (ie. denatured spirits) is best as long as you can get it without nasty additives. Next choice is 190 proof Everclear (95% ethanol) which is almost as good and you...

WTB: MLD Revelation
Let me know if you have a MLD Revelation for sale. I'm only interested in the 2900 cu inch model (2009), not the older 1850 cu inch model for a couple years back. Size medium please.

Re: really?
"Golite discontinued the Reed Pant? That is very surprising, it was the "Gold Standard" of UL rain pants. Any reason as to why?" It seems to me that Golite is changing their ...

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...
