Go for it
I went directly from a Osprey Aether 70 to a tiny little totally frameless MLD Burn. Base weight went from ~27lbs to 5.5lbs in 3 weeks of research, looking for used gear, etc. Carrying over 30lb...

Re: Think I found one
Just a super minimal polycro groundsheet wouldn't be a terrible idea, but it's not strictly necessary. The real trick is just to not try and sleep on top of anything that will poke any hole...

Do you guys with the larger (I mean over 1.5" blades by "large" ) ever find any real use of that much blade? I've been carrying a Spyderco Bug a lot and I really don't ever f...

Bivys are fantastic
I picked up a large/wide side zip bivy from Borah Gear. 6.5oz, M50 top, sil bottom. I love the thing. It's my first bivy. I always assumed it would be claustrophobic and irritating, but it'...

Best blankets ever
I've taken two old down bags, removed the zippers and sewn the footbox closed about 30-40 inches up to make a blanket for cold fall/winter days. I keep the house pretty cold, and an old slee...
