I believe they indicated the 7 watts was peak, and would be suprised if you could get a sustained 7 watts out of the backpack. If you think about a limited amount of electronics a 1/2 to 1 watt...

Pack based Generator
I found the 'as light as a "candy bar" notation interesting. I didn't see any analysis on possible costs. The idea looks simple enough that it should be easy to productionize quickly. I believe y...

Built a camp chair using an external frame backpack?
I'm trying to pack 'lighter' or multitask equipment, and wondering: Has anyone has built a chair by double-duty-ing their external backpack frame? Thanks in advance, Mike

MSR Pocket Rocket
This is a pretty basic stove that is simple to operate. It's lightweight and reasonably efficient. We used 3 of these on a 10 day hike with 10 people and they worked well. The stove is reas...

Light My Fire Spork
I like the LMF Spork, but it's almost too flexible. I can agree with many if not most of the comments above, and have had one break. When you use it to stir something very hot, it gets soft and ...

Atkinson's Chick-O-Stick Crunchy Peanut Butter & Coconut Candy
I really like the "Chick'O's", they do pack significant energy in a small package, and the taste is very good. They don't break as easy as some, and have a similar texture in h...

We had a short term need for a bag and pad we could use at Philmont, and the Scout was on a budget. We looked around and called Big Agnes. They had a demo bag come in the next day, and they called b...
