Dry Bag
Granite Gear showed some at the outdoor retailer market this year. They aren't technically cuben, but supposedly it's pretty much the same stuff:

I'm not sure which type I had, but I had Nalgene bottles like these and I recently replaced them with some from Coghlins that were quite a bit thinner, and thus lighter. I got a pack at my loca...

An 8oz can of Coke is a lot of weight considering the syrup to make this is probably 0.5oz. Hopefully I can get some coke syrup from work soon. I just need to wait until the 20 liter bag of syrup i...

Thanks...I will try this. I figured this would just heal on it's own but it's been weeks now and it still hurts quite a bit. Unfortunately, I work two full time jobs and both have me on my ...

The small Jam sounds like a good choice. I ordered one for my wife recently (she is 5'6", 125lbs) and it was quite a bit too small for her, so we exchanged it for a size medium. The Jam is...

Re: Dehydrated wine
I love the idea of dehydrated red wine, but supposedly that stuff tastes gross. It amazes me that you can get 6% alcohol from a powder though...that just blows my mine. Imagine if they could make d...

I'm going to grab some coke syrup from the bar I work at so I can see what it's like to make non-carbonated coke. I bet you don't need much syrup. This stuff is probably 1000 calories p...

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...
