A friend of mine bought the Hubba a few years ago and hates it. She says it's only wide enough for her sleeping bag and doesn't have any arm-flopping room. She then bought a Contrail Tarp...

Relay fully loaded
Huzefa - at long last my gear and my camera are in the same place, so I've taken a picture of the packed Relay, including ice axe, snowshoes, and helmet. I've never packed the helmet and t...

Backpacking weddings/engagements
Do day trips count? Mr. B and I were married almost 5 years to the day at Lake Valhalla. We snowshoed in with three friends - one served as preacher (online certified) and the other 2 were witnes...

Good container for hot liquid

Huzefa - see my post on the favorite day pack thread. I do alpine scrambling (non-technical climbing) with it all the time. I haven't done any technical climbing for a few years, and during t...

Relay - Favorite Day Pack
I love my ULA-Equipment Relay. I use it all year for day scrambles. It does not have a hydration pouch, which I don't use, anyway. In the winter I have been able to pack an avy probe and sho...

You sound very ept
Interesting comments, Greg, although they are off topic, as opposed to on topic. Is the neutral condition just "topic"? As for packing cheese, I prefer to be cumbered with babybels, alt...

Boomer's Guide to Lightweight Backpacking by Carol Corbridge
I was very disappointed in this book. Luckily, I didn't buy it but had checked it out from the library. For starters, the book is in major need of copy editing. There are lots of awkward sent...

These do everything BPL promised - provide comfortable warmth without being bulky. I've worn them under non-winter hiking pants all winter, and they've extended the comfort range down to 7 de...

Golite Paradox pants
I'm not sure whether to review these in raingear or softshell clothing, because they're both. They are all-day pants, rather than rain pants to pull on over hiking pants and are made of a fab...
