Sarah's Tater Tuesday
Laurie - I've got her figured out. She posts on her own website first. I checked there last night, and sure enough!

Golite Reeds on sale at Prolitegear
I made it clear to January 16 before buying any gear! I was hoping for March or April. The Reeds are $55.95. I don't know which year's model they are. Prolite seems to have a lot of...

Ditto Jeff's recommendation. I use a Relay for day trips and a Circuit for multi-day trips. They are excellent packs.

Peak v. ID eVENT
Well, that was interesting. My Peak, size small, weighs 10.6 oz. The ID eVENT, size medium, weighs 9 oz. I stacked them on top of each other, matching seam to seam, and the size small Peak's...

Better rain jacket or better shirt?
Donna - I'd wondered the same thing about a l/s or s/s shirt. But after testing various combinations since last spring, the Precip just doesn't cut it for me for breathability and waterpro...

fruit cake v. Logan bread
Duane - I've altered the original Logan bar recipe, too, and have packed in more fruit and nuts and less liquid to begin with so it doesn't need so much baking and drying time. I haven'...

Successful rainjacket report
I thought I'd dredge up this old thread that I started a year ago when I was new to BPL to report on the great success I've had with my new arrangement. Especially since there's anothe...

Who has the fruitcake this year?
Although Dave Barry is convinced there's only one fruitcake, and it gets passed on to someone else each year, I make some each year from a very easy recipe I got when I was living in Norway dur...

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...
