After re-reading your initial post, it seems that this product isn't really what you're looking for since you want the merino (no smell) in the arm pits so your sweat never does contact the...

Helly Hansen
I work for Helly Hansen. The 'HH Warm' aka ProWool line of baselayers are all constructed of polypro and merino wool. You can see these polypro/merino garments here: http://www.hellyhansen...

I'm curious about the 1.5" spacing of the horizontal quilting/baffles that you see in a lot of these down jackets (Rab, Patagonia, Mtn Hardware, North Face etc). It seems to me that th...

I went up one size over my normal shoe size (8). You gotta wiggle 'em on but it's not a huge pain. Just takes 10 seconds or so per foot. I could probably get my shoe size on, but it would l...

Re: Birthday Money
Here's my initial thoughts: I would replace the REI Helix jkt with a Montbell U.L. Down Inner Jacket. The Montbell retails for $165 but you can probably find one online for ~$140 with free s...

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...
