AquaTabs
I just picked up some 'aquatabs' which weigh 1.4g for a strip of 10 one litre tablets. For a weekend I'd probably take 20 tablets to be safe, which is 2.8 or 0.1oz. www.aquatabs.ca

MLD
Does MLD take 4-7 weeks to ship even for stuff like stuff sacks? Or does he have a pile on hand pre-made? For whatever reason, the MLD site won't load for me right now but I was on there ear...

I wonder how easy it is to get accepted as a 'pro' and what kind of discounts this entails? Doesn't seem to hard: http://www.golite.com/sale/propurchase.aspx

Canada
I sure wish GoLite would ship to Canada. It's really hard as a Canadian to buy their stuff. Physical dealers are almost non-existent (and usually don't have your size anyways) and there are...

Heat Transfer
I wonder if using a taller caldera cone to raise the pot an inch or so further from the stove would even out the heat for easier frying? There's a great YouTube vid on making your own cone. ht...

Non-Stick Ti Pots - Worth the weight?
I'm currently researching Ti pots and I'm having trouble deciding if the non-stick coatings are worth the weight. I'm looking at 1.3L Evernew pots since I'm usually camping with my ...

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, ...

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...
