Supplex Pants
These are not great pictures, but here they are. One is a picture of them lying on the floor and another with me in them. My arm isn't long enough to get a better shot! Pants weigh 5.6 oz, b...

Supplex Pants
I really appreciated this article. The best part was learning about a source for supplex/Taslan fabric. I read this article on Wednesday, ordered the fabric within seconds after reading it, got t...

boil time
I wasn't very precise with measuring time. The fastest I can remember was 1.5 cups of water at around 5 minutes. The water wasn't very cold. The longest I can remember was at around 7,00...

Super Dog Stove
One of my backpacking friends was interested in the Super Cat stove I was using (see for detailed instructions). I told her all about the virtues of alcohol stoves, but in all hones...

oil v butter
Eddy - in your first post you said you bought coconut oil, and in your next post you said the coconut butter didn't set up. Which did you use?

square oreos
When I made my batch, I wasn't about to cut little circles and re-roll scraps, so I just cut the dough into rectangles and added the filling. Somehow I ended up with one mate-less rectangle, p...

Coconut Butter substitute?
Sarah - do you know of a substitute for coconut butter that would work? I'm not that crazy about coconut, and where I live, I'd probably have to mail order it. Just plain ol' margarine?

MLD Prophet
For me, the Prophet was the better option. I bought the Exodus and sold it, because it was too big. The Prophet cinches up just right for day hikes, and it expanded to plenty of room for a recent...

I finally was in the same place as my Ninja food processor and made these today. Another instant evergreen from Sarah! A big glob of it is going in my pack for tomorrow's hike. Interesti...

Botach Tactical Customer Service
I had a similar experience to David's. They sent the inferior space blankets, rather than the correct order, took forever to send a return UPS shipping label, and only yesterday admitted to recei...

Boomer's Guide to Lightweight Backpacking by Carol Corbridge
I was very disappointed in this book. Luckily, I didn't buy it but had checked it out from the library. For starters, the book is in major need of copy editing. There are lots of awkward sent...

Backpacking Light Merino UL Pants
These do everything BPL promised - provide comfortable warmth without being bulky. I've worn them under non-winter hiking pants all winter, and they've extended the comfort range down to 7 de...

Golite Paradox pants
I'm not sure whether to review these in raingear or softshell clothing, because they're both. They are all-day pants, rather than rain pants to pull on over hiking pants and are made of a fab...
