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.

More Snaps
I'm a little late on this one, but it would be cool to add or or two more male halves of the snaps, so you could roll the flashing up and then snap it into place so it doesn't unroll. This ...

I had a look just know at the Bugaboo. BPL actually had a good write up on it. The weight breaks down like this: Small Pot: 152g Small Lid: 98g Pot Lifter: 68g Total: 318g Even with a li...

I guess something with about 10-12 fl oz of capacity is what I want. I had a look at GSI's site but I didn't see anything else in this range. I'll have to visit the 'outdoor shop...

Re: Re: Non-Stick Ti
I think you mis-read. I said I was leaning towards non-stick Ti, not untreated. I think the non-stick will be fine for stuff like Sidekicks. The stove I will be using is a FeatherFire alcohol st...

I found a few goodies yesterday at MEC (Canadian Equivilent of REI). I found some small food bottles that will be great for holding stuff like Olive Oil, Campsuds etc and they weigh about 1/2 of th...

Mugs & Cups
I'm curious what options are out there for really light cups/mugs. In generally, plastic ones seem to be the lightest but I'm having a hard time finding one that isn't excessively large...

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 ...

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...
