Re: Re: Petzl e+lite $13.50
I didn't get any message saying the code wouldn't work. I've been told my order has shipped as well. Even if the code doesn't work, Road Runner's price is half of what you'l...

Re: multi-use items as signal mirrors
My compass has a small sighting mirror. I've always planned on using that if I needed to. I also use it to check for ticks, make sure my hair looks ok :), etc. Its actually quite handy. Adam

Re: Petzl e+lite $13.50
Thanks a lot! I just bought one. I was going to get one from REI because I had a 15% off coupon, but this is a way better deal. Plus I can save the 15% off for something else. Adam

Re: Chiggers?

I actually folded the pad in half and put it under the NightLight so it was more of a 1/4" torso pad. It didn't make a whole lot of difference comfort-wise but it was definitely warmer tha...

I spent this past weekend camped out in UL luxury. I brought 2 sleeping pads! How could it possibly have been UL? They were a GG Nightlight Torso and GG 1/8" Thinlight. So maybe it wasn'...

Melanzana micro grid hoody
Let me just echo everything the previous reviewer said. The fit is great, not tight and not baggy, the sleeves are just the right length, and the pocket is useful. As for the hood, I was a little s...

Gossamer Gear ThinLight insulation pad 1/8" approx. 2 oz.
I've been using my GG 1/8" Thinlight both to supplement my GG Nightlight Torso and as a sit pad. Its great with the torso pad to insulate your legs on colder nights. It provides some addi...
