Re: PCT gear review
Thanks for the reviews Scott, Knowing what you know now, if you were picking gear for the PCT again, what would you choose? For the pack, would you go up to the ULA Catalyst for the food or w...

Well I picked up a pair of Mammut champ pants, They fit great and the stretch seems really awesome. I'll have to see how they do not being truly waterproof, but breathability while snowshoein...

I had actually just looked at the REI ultralights as a cheaper alternative to the Taku, how do the rate in terms of fit? I'll take a look at Mammut too, thanks for the suggestion. And as ...

Re: ...
I'm looking for stuff that comes in longer inseams than waist width ... most manufacturers do 30x30, 32x32, etc. REI is the only one I've found with separate dimensions.

Pad shape
The prolite x-small at 36 inches is on a average-sized person a torso-length pad, which means reaching from the shoulders to the pelvis. The Torsolite is widest and square at the shoulders, which m...

Re: Bivies

I have used this quilt 15 nights this summer, all in the northern Sierra in the greater Lake Tahoe area. Temperatures were between the low 30's and the high 40's. The quilt was used in con...

I have used this pack a total of 17 days this summer, including 15 on a thru-hike of the Tahoe Rim Trail. The pack volume and design suit my needs perfectly for carrying up to 5 days worth of food,...

This review is for the large bivy with the old-style bug headnet (a mesh headnet bag sewn across the chest, pulled over the head, under the bivy). This is the best value hands down in water resista...

Mountain Hardwear Phantom 32 F, 800 down
The phantom 32 was my first light-weight item, and is still my favorite. Loft is great, the hood fits great, and there is enough room for me to add a down jacket or vest. The one downside is the .85 ...

During the time I have used this bivy, I have experienced no condensation, even when the single wall tent I was in was dripping. I have not found a great solution to getting the bug-mesh away from my...

Golite Den 2
Similar to tarptent designs, but no vestibule and made out of Golite's heavy-duty silnylon, so it weighs a little more (3.5 lbs). I have used it in Tahoe National Forest where it was used for me and a...
