A generic styrofoam cup seems really light and has good insulating properties. The problems are just durability, lack of handle and perhaps the somewhat small size. I can get past the last two '...

Re: good price
It wouldn't be the 2010 Jam....those don't hit stores until mid-winter and they won't be on sale for a while after that. They aren't even on GoLite's website yet. The 2009 Ja...

Re: New to UL. Please critique my Gear List
Tell me more about your rain pants. What is the name of them? 3.5oz is awesome. My Sierra Designs rain pants weigh 7.5oz. A few gearlist thoughts: 1) The 1L Platybag and inline filter seems h...

Aaron, I'm not sure if you read it but I ordered one of the new ones directly from Montbell USA because I wanted one of the updated ones. The updated parka's (released about a week ago) ...

Ti Pot
I bought a 1.3L Non Stick Evernew Ti Pot today from eBay ($38) which should shave a nice 140g (about 4.5oz) off my pack. In combination with my new mug and lighter food bottles, I'm down 0.4lbs...

Coating Wear
Does the coating end up flaking off? Or just wearing thinner and thinner until it wears right through? So how fast it wears would depend on how abrasive your scrubbing utensil is and how much you n...

I found an Evernew 1.3L Non-Stick on eBay for $38 so I bought it. The seller has another one listed if anyone else is interested. I'm going to give it a whirl and try to stick to liquid based c...

I recently switched from a medium sized internal frame pack to a Jam. I use a blow up pad too (NeoAir). Unlike most of the other packs being mentioned, the Jam has a bit of foam in the back which p...

James....that Ikea cup sounds great as long as the handle isn't annoying. Sub-1oz is great. I wonder if there are light but insulating plastics that could be used to provide some additional ins...

Re: Re: Mugs & Cups
Hmm....the Snow Peak Titanium Single Cup does look like mug perfection with the addition of the cozy to insulate your beverage.

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, ...

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 ...
