A few more thoughts
I've had this new parka for a few days now and I'd have some time to get to know it a bit better now that I've been wearing it everywhere. Some observations: 1) The new fabric is ...

Gonna be a week
The testing is on hold for a bit because I'm waiting for my new 1.3L Evernew Ti pot to arrive. I don't want to spend hours making all sorts of windscreens and a caldera cone for my current ...

Jam2 Fit
Here is a photo of me wearing my Jam. As a reminder, I am 5'11 between and 6'0" and this morning I weighed 158 lbs in the buff. I used to weigh about 170 lbs before I moved to Whistler...

I've got a 2009 Jam. I'm 5'11, 160lbs with a 18.5" torso. I'm loving the medium fit.

Re: Re: FeatherFire vs. PocketRocket
Just the stove weighs 42g and I weighed the stove + fuel at about 80g, so I had about 40g or nearly 2 ounces of fuel in there (I think a fluid oz of methanol weighs 22g). After the stove was out...

This is probably silly, but what about using E85 or E95 in an alcohol stove? Would the 15% (or 5%) that is gasoline render this fuel dangereous to use? Or would it perform like ethanol? If it i...

Re: Alcohol Stove Math
No I can't get DN alcohol. I don't think it's sold in Canada. I might be able to get 191 proof booze but that's quite expensive and I've never seen any at the liquor store. Mayb...

Re: Re: New vs. Old
"Not sure what you mean here. It has pockets doesn't it? Or are you saying that they are not insulated?" My wife's parka (which is the old version) has the 2 pockets on the out...

FeatherFire vs. PocketRocket
My FeatherFire arrived today so I decided to conduct some tests to compare it to my PocketRocket. I wanted to see which is lighter....the Pocket Rocket or the FeatherFire plus windscreen. The Feath...

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...
