Ideal
"My ideal parka would be a Frost Line with a 15d shell, 7d liner and 900 FP down." That's pretty darn close to the Mirage. Just 8 denier away on the shell fabric spec. Too bad Bac...

Frost Line
The Frost Line is a really appealing light winter jacket. The price ($219) is a bargain for a box baffled 800 FP jacket like this. There are similar jackets that cost more (ie. Patagonia Fitz Roy) ...

Vargo Ti-Arc
The frame looks cool. It's tough to judge over the web, but this frame design could have promise. The bag is a mismatch though. Not durable enough compared to the frame. The only real use for c...

Great to see the 2015 route. I'm excited. There's a high probability I'll be attending. Time to dig out the maps for a look. Clayton: An option is to put together a 3 day route f...

Bob
Awesome trip report. Looks like my kind of trip. The White River rocks. I took a wrong turn into the upper reaches of the NF White River during the 2012 BMWO, so I feel your pain with the tough ...

Mountain Laurel Designs Cuben DuoMid
The DuoMid is the best shelter for solo hikers. Don't be misled by the "Duo" in its name - you could cram two hikers in here but it's poorly suited for that (ie. no vestibule space, ...

Spark-Lite Fire Starter (Survival Gear - BPL Gear Shop)
I have this kit and the FireLite Mini kit. This sparker is a bit lighter than the FireLite Mini but I don't trust this sparker 100% like I do the FireLite. This sparker doesn't work well wh...

BPL FireLite Firestarter
I love this FireLite Mini. It's the only thing that I 100% trust to start a fire. With a mini Bic you can run out of gas, be at too high of an altitude, get it wet or get it oily. Matches can ...

Baladeo 22 Grams Knife
This knife is a brilliant design. Every part of it is functional and the result is a lot of knife for just 22g (or 24.3g as mine as actually weighs). When I opened the (very nice) box and first played...
