Hi Been looking at those LL Trail Poles but as far as I can tell just one pole weighs 7oz at 48", 10oz at 66" and costs $49 - which doesn't really get me very excited. Can anyone tell me oth...

Paty Airius Hat vs BPL UL Cap
Hello Just pointing out that the Patagonia Airius Hat is much lighter than Backpacking Light's own Ultralight Cap at only 28 grams vs 45 grams.

MoonStone Delta Cirrus
Hi I always thought the Moonstone Delta Cirrus was a good option; $150 or less, 1lbs 12oz (794g) Reg, 32oF (0oC), full zip, PG.Delta, Pertex. Not as warm as you requested but easily boosted by...

Hide it later
Hi Re what to do with your protective travel over bag: I have a habit of hiding stuff I don't need as long as I am coming back the same way. You could take GPS coordinates if you wanted. Ch...

incorrect data
Hi Noticed the Granite Gear Virga's weight and price are wrong. Should be 1 lb 5 oz and $100 or less if you shop around.

Petzyl Myo XP
I owned one of these but had to send it back as the electronics developed a fault - kept flashing. Still preferred it to my Black Diamond Icon headlamp. But a new 30% brighter & longer battery...

MSR Titan Kettle
You can always just rest the lid on top of the pan while cooking if the stiffness is an issue.

Sport EYZ ultralight sunglasses
Sorry to cast a downer on this but the plastic pot it comes in is too small. Incredibly hard to get it back in. And if you can it wraps too tight and after not too long creases and then cracks the l...

Rab Carrington Quantum Elite Top Bag
I've had one of these for years and although the quality and price were good I always felt Rab / O.D. made a mistake by just leaving a sleeping pad shaped uninsulated patch in the base. To put ...

The North Face Propel
I have the 05 version white-ish, now yellow-ish after my girlfriend washed it. It's seen a hell of a lot of use, not sure if it's lost some loft over time but I don't consider it warm e...

Aloksak O.P 12.5 x 20"
I almost dispise Aloksaks for their lack of durability. Why pay so much for something that hardly lasts more than a few uses!

Big Agnes Insulated Air Core Pad
First pad was a bit slippery, too slippery for my girlfriend. Much better design than POE Max Thermo as has proper chamber walls rather than just top welded to bottom. Not had trouble with leaks...

I generally like Marmot but don't believe in everything they do. I loved my Chinook, extremely breathable, fast drying & lightweight. Liked the hood for extra sun protection but annoying w...

Montbell Thermawrap Vest
I know there's a fashion for 1/2 length zips but I like the full length one on this. The insulation could have been stitched in place through the lining only and it could be warmer but some how I...

Teva X-1 Shoe
I had high hopes for these. Confirm they are very light and airy. But too tight across the toes for me. Why do some shoes look like pointed pebble s at the toe?? My feet don't look like that. ...
