Thermarest Prolite 3 Short

Re: Re: Arc Alpinist custom options
I did not have any customization on my Alpinist. If I had to do it again, I would agree that having buckles om both sides would be an advantage. For now, when I do not need, I roll them up and use ...

Re: Re: tents
I would agree with the SMD Lunar Solo. It fulfills the Philmont floored requirement. You can use either an adjustable trekking pole or can buy the 45 inch pole they sell also. The Tyvek groundsheet...

"bottle opener (shut up)" Hey!!!! The only kind of 'good' beer comes in bottles and not with twist-off tops. I only bought canned beer to make some alcohol stoves.

Photon Light Proton Personal Flashlight
I would give the Proton a 4 out of 5 score primarily because of its high cost ($69). It is an excellent light if you need to do any emergency signaling at night or if you need a high intensity beam fo...

Six Moon Designs Lunar Solo
I like the simplicity in the concept of the design. It is a combination of bivy sack and single wall tent with plenty of room that weighs in at 25 ounces. The bathtub floor and netting along the floor...

I have to say this is not the worst pack I ever had, but close to it. I do like the simplicity, but the straps are just killer. With 18 pounds I can carry on one shoulder and switch sides, but when ...
