Hmm....STP does have some good deals. They have the Litespeed for 35-45% off. Maybe if the Ultra 20 makes it there I'll place an order.

I've heard that NikWax is good but because it's waxed based it wears off about 2x as fast as others. I personally prefer spray on Grangers but it's still not incredible. It repels rain ...

I've got a local shop that sells GoLite....they just aren't doing the 40% off deal. I'm really surprised GoLite doesn't ship worldwide via their website. There's just so much...

This sale is a really bummer for Canadians like me. I was so stoked to grab new bags and packs for my wife and I, but it turns out Canadians are totally screwed. They won't ship to Canada a...

Sick deal
This is a sick deal....kinda weird how there's 2 coupon codes though. It seems like you gotta enter the first one, hit update cart and then enter the 2nd one and update the cart again. I got...

I just posted a review of the Carbon Reflex 2 in the reviews section of this site. Check it out. I got mine on eBay for $355 and I'm very happy with it.

Golite Ultra
I'm looking for a GoLite Ultra 20 as well. PM me if you got one. This quilt seems to be out of the OP's price range.

Full length pad?
How well does this quilt work with a full length sleeping pad? I'm thinking of pairing this up with a regular NeoAir. It seems that the quilt gets narrow near the feet so it wouldn't wrap a...

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 ...

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...
