The Titanium Goat bivy tapers substantially and this is the problem. I am going to try and make by own bivy when my Cuben order gets in.

Neo Air Compatible Bivy On The Way
My Neo Air doesn’t fit inside my Titanium Goat bivy bag too well. The top part is OK but as it slims towards the end the down in the top of my sleeping bag gets crushed. You can’t really put th...

Dan's reply
Here is Dan's reply: Pedro, a) I think your shoulders will fit fine in a medium. The cut around the shoulders is quite spacious and the sleeves are adequately long. However, your large sh...

Why womens undies are lighter
They are made from thin polyester with high stretch so there is less material. There is also no waist band.

Womens undies again
Hey guys, use women’s undies - they are the lightest. I posted this in MYOG but here’s the story behind it. Some years ago a girl left her underpants behind at my place (no questions here pl...

Shoulder fit on Montbell?
I have an endless sizing question about the Montbell jacket you just bought. I am 5’10” and 170, you are 5’11” and 160 so it’s close. I am interested in the fit around the shoulders as ...

Get over your homophobia and try womens undies
Its time to add some bling to your UL underwear. I wear women's underwear and it weighs just under 1 oz. I found some that basically looks like mens' swimwear without any lacy stuff. Its...

Stephenson 2R
It won’t fall down, it withstands high wind but there are too many usability issues with this tent to make it easy to use. Perhaps 10 years ago these tents were ahead of their time. Now they are n...

I like the design of this pack but have issues over the quality and durability. On its second use, and with no real loads and no bush whacking, the mesh separated from its elastic on one of the sid...
