My Locale Wet & Humid Southeast....
About Me I have been backpacking a little over 3 years now, but in that time I have logged a number of trail miles and went through a lot of gear trying to find my sweet spot. Now, thanks to cuben fiber, alcohol stoves, down and of course a better understanding, my TPW has severly dropped! My cold weather BPW is 9 - 10 lbs and my warm weather BPW is 5 - 6 lbs.
About 95% of the time I hike with family or friends and in the SouthEastern states. My favorites places to get away are anywhere along the AT as well as in the Great Smoky Mountains.

Are these in stock?
Do you have these in stock? I too like the white one, but I want to be sure that you have them in stock before ordering. Also, where do these ship from?

I have the Flash Pullover R1 rather than the hoody, but I love it. It is probably one of my favorite pieces of clothing. As far as drying out, I have yet to get it soaked from rain, and considering...

Re: Re: Gram Weenie Pro or Venom Super Stove
No I do not use a pot support with either of these stoves. They sit directly on the stoves.

Gram Weenie Pro or Venom Super Stove
The Gram Weenie Pro will work. Also, Zelphs Venom Super Stove will work. I have both of these stoves and they work with my Backcountry 700 ml Ti pot which is slightly narrower than the SP 700.

Bag + Quilt

Joe, You may have figured this part out, but the cord that comes with the porch is meant to be cut. I ended up making 2 guy lines out of some of Lawson Klines guywire using the clips that are on...
