Montbell currently has both the old and new versions of the jacket and parka on their site. Cosemetically, the baffles now angle up instead of being totally horizontal. The price of the jacket w...

Interesting
Hmm....I'll have to check this out. I was on the Montbell site 2 days ago and the weight was 6.9oz. I wonder if the parka was updated too.

The cashback program sounds great, but unfortunately I don't think that Canadians (like me) are allowed to use it.

MontBell U.L. Down Inner Parka - Know of any deals?
Anyone know of any current deals on this parka (Mont-Bell U.L. Down Inner Parka). I need to buy one soon and there have been a number of sales on these over the summer but I haven't been able t...

Dried Pasta
What about cooking stuff like dehydrated pasta (ie. Sidekicks) and stuff like couscous. This is probably what I cook the most. I'm not sure if this would create a sticky mess with untreated Ti ...

I'm having a really hard time finding any sort of a deal on the MontBell U.L. Down Inner Parka. I thought I had a great deal lined up at BackcountryGear.com for $112 (retail $160) but the day a...

Fishing
Yeah I've been kinda avoiding weighing my fishing gear because that's a whole new can of worms. Soon I'm going to start researching an lightweight spinning rod and reel.

Nice
Thanks that was really helpful. Wow, the MB U.L. Down inner is much warmer than both the MEC jacket and the MB Thermawraps. Good to know.

Ethanol
Yeah alcohol is really expensive in Canada. It's also regulated at a provincial level, so even though you can buy 94% alcohol in Quebec you still probably can't out on the West Coast. Quebe...

Re: Re: Thermawrap (jacket vs parka)
Chris: "The jacket uses 50g insulation where the parka adds the hood and uses 80g insulation." Thanks, this is great to know. That makes a lot of sense. Anyone know how the warmth o...

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 ...
