My exact ??!
I was asking myself that this weekend while looking at my gossamer gear. I hear of animals eating the grips, poles slipping out and poking holes. I won't try to accept that it is better. I only...

Me too
Free bump, since I have the same exact tent/problem. I was thinking that since the tent is slippery and the pad has some bite, put it on the tent in order to grab the pad, but I also figured the pa...

I never use straps. When people ask why or talk trash, I ask them if their kitchen knives at home have straps for when they carve meat, or if their steering wheel in the car has straps to prevent t...

I was looking at those tents a few weeks ago. I ordered the gossamer gear tent. It was in stock and the others have a wait. Supply and demand. I am happy with it in every way. My only beef was the ...

cool!

poles
I went from black diamonds to the LT3's and was shocked at the change. I never noticed the weight before but now I am hooked. My first trip using the light poles, I dropped them about 4 or 5 ti...

poles
Can you order the 130's and cut them down to 125? If you contact the company, they might be able to send you some new grips for a fair price. Then you would be sure to have what you want. You m...

Yeah, I have to go the other way on these guys. I ordered a jacket on clearance and they are the only ones that have it for that price. I paid for 2nd day shipping. I get an email 3 days later saying ...

I am not going to hype up the good points. The GG website does a good job of showing the features. It is light and well made. I will point out the flaws that could be better. First the compression s...

I'm not going to say much since this has been reviewed allready. I just want to say the bag is made with great quality and is very light. The pictures don't show how pretty the red material is...
