Re: Looking for New Product Feedback- Camp Chairs
Weight is good but stored leg length of 20" + is kinda long for many packs I think. Have you tested the weight capacity? Most of sub 300g/10oz campstools made with 7075 Alu I've seen here ...

Re: Re: Possible Problem with MontBell 800 #5
I think the simple solution is you need to wear more clothes when you sleep. An undershirt/gym shorts may work for you at home but just doesn't cut it outdoors in temps under 70F. I almost ...

Re: Possible Problem with MontBell 800 #5

Re: Re: paclite

Re: dud
Just to clarify, you are saying your old Torrentshell had always kept you dry while riding your bike in the rain in August somewhere in the SE USA and your new Super Cell doesn't? As recomme...

Re: Goretex Pro Jackets / Rain Jackets that actually last
I have the Storm Cruiser Japan model (no pit zips). I got it from Gore Japan as a warranty replacement for a first gen 20yr old Gore-tex jacket that leaked. The stoweable hood is a nice feature. Ac...
