Some additional pictures
Here are a few pictures of variants of the one ounce pack. A Cuben pack with a zipper lid, which I really didn't like too much (material wasn't stiff enough for the zipper I felt) and a 320...

Per your request
I've added more pictures to the instructions on the GC website and tried to make the instructions a bit more usable. As for sewing, I'm currently recovering from back surgery, so I won&#...

Bill ... always a pleasure
Hope your feeling up to snuff these days. I always love these SUL/SUC threads. I think they really force us to challenge our traditional ways of thinking. I mean, it's easy to go SUL if you ...

Water weight in perspective
One shoulder carry would depend entirely on the amount of food and water you needed to carry in addition to Ray's 8 lb pack. I personally don't like carrying 20 lbs on one shoulder, howe...

Minty Boost
I used one on my AT section hike last fall .... a great piece of equipment. And it generates heat in your bag if you plug it in when you go to sleep!

Snow Peak 600
This cup is big enough to cook in for a solo person, a huge cup of java, or it's great for just boiling water. I use a piece of simple foil for a lid and it works amazingly well on a Snowpeak Giga...

White Box Alcohol Stove
This little stove ROCKS! I'm in agreement that it needs a primer pan, but other than that, I actually melted my windscreen when it got too close to the cup. It's like firing up a blowto...
