The One
Seems like you're very close to justifying an exciting new piece of gear :) If you go with some 6g Titanium shepards hook stakes (5.8g each) then you'll save another 13g off The One, which ...

Too Many Stuff Sacks
Here is my re-styled gear list. This gear list now includes the Ti stakes, FeatherFire stove and Montbell U.L. Parka, all of which I have on order. I'm trying to be as realistic as I can...

Re: 3 Season / 3 Night - Gear List
Your 'Big 4' are pretty heavy. Considering these 4 items compose almost 3/4 of your total base weight, this is where the potential is to shave off a significant amount of weight. 3lbs (4...

GI 2
I've been using the same pair of Patagonia GI 2 pants for about a year now and they have been great. I've been surprised how durable they are. They've been through a lot of abuse and sh...

Baking
I like the idea of using rocks in the pot to minimize burning rather than water so you can get a crust on your muffins. I'm going to try this soon, but I am a bit nervous about overheating my p...

Hmm.....that is unfortunate. I ordered a Montbell parka from BackcountryGear.com about a week ago and thankfully they had the sense to email me and say that my order had been cancelled because they...

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...
