"Which new WIDE warm inflatable sleep mat, NeoAir Xtherm or Exped?"
I just received the Exped Synmat Medium wide. IT's 4 ounces heavier than the UL7 regular. I've only tried it out on my apartment floor, but it's pretty nice. 5 inches wider than the reg...

"Open-Ended Solo Trip in Washington State"
Tom: I was thinking that if Puppy Love was coming in over Cascade Pass, it's not too far to head down the Stehekin Road to the trailhead in to Glacier Peak. I forget the name of the river that ...

Sahale Arm is definitely worth seeing. I don't think that you can camp at Cascade Pass--I'm assuming that you're coming in from the west--but if you can, that would be sweet. I think th...

"Winter down jacket for 3 season use?"
I'm with Matt; hard to imagine being too warm sitting around camp. I use a giant Brooks Range with a hood--14 ounces, I think--which most people will laugh at for summer use. OH, soo toasty! Le...

"Winter down jacket for 3 season use?"
I got a great price on a winter hooded puffy and have ended up using it in the summer in the Sierra. My reasoning is, there's nothing warmer for less weight than down. So I leave at least one...

"Big Agnes Fly Creek UL 1 in high winds?"
+1 to what Bob said. I've used this tent for years and I've never had an issue with wind. But I'd definitely add a rock pile to my stakes if wind is a consideration. Actually the Fly...

"Exped Hyperlite and Winterlite first impressions"
I went all over the map deciding which exped pad to get. I've used the UL7 for years and love it. But I was about to pull the trigger on the winterlite for the added r value. I'm a stomach ...

re-thinking Exped pad decision--call out on UL9
I'm beating a dead horse, but...I was all set to buy the new Winterlite Medium Wide. I'd only pay a 4 ounce penalty over my UL7, but gain in r value. It also has a wider shoulder width than...

Vasque Breeze GTX
These boots really are a breeze on your feet. Unlike another reviewer, I found these boots to have terrific ankle support. However, the deal-killer for me is the relatively narrow toe box. Full disclo...
