Re: HUbba Hubba
Alex, I'm surpised you prefer to use your tent without the fly. The 'rainfly' is for more than just rain. It also keeps you warmer by minimizing wind and it gives you percieved feeling ...

Re: Re: GoLite Jam2 Functionality Question
I turned my Jam2 inside out last night....it was very easy to do. I'm going to use a seam ripper on the two long side seams of the hydration sleeve, but I might cut it along the bottom because ...

July 23, 11:14am

I've got the Jam2 and I'm buying a NeoAir shortly. The Jam2 has sort of a foam pack panel so I'm not too worried about a frame, but I might buy a 3/4 length NeoAir and then cut a peice ...

Yeah the ankle is a bugger....it's okay under normal use but a slight twist is excruciatingly painful. I've got a 3 day trip coming up in 2 weeks....hopefully its ok for that. Gotta buy...

To revive this topic.....I'm surprised I don't hear more about the LiteSpeed pack. A search of this website only revealed this thread and a lot of other websites have nothing on it. In m...

Oops, I was a bit worked up there....my apologies. I'm cool headed again now. You're right that the Rainbow is longer and thus better suited for people significantly over 6". I do ...

Re: Tarptent vs MSR
David: "By the way, BPL used the Manufacturer's spec for length." BPL measured the length. I quote from the review: "The length is 84 inches as specified." The wall at...

Strange....BPL measured the CR2 as an honest 84" (7 feet) in length in their review of it. I don't see how someone how is 8 inches shorter than that would need to sleep diagonal unless the...

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...
