It's cool
I really think it's perfectly fine to sell knives here and I don't see why anyone would have a problem. Good luck!

A poncho isn't a perfect system for me for a couple of reasons. Firstly, a poncho is redundant with my rain jacket and rain pants, which I'm already bringing for use on the bike. So, the ro...

Great Suggestions
Good suggestions, all: The poles aren't an end-all, I can definitely strap them to the frame. It's just slightly less convenient than the bivy. I have found that the less straps I have, ...

Drybag Pack
Sea to Summit makes a drybag with a shoulder/hipbelt integrated that looks pretty burly. It has lash points and no dedicated frame, and comes in at 2lb 4oz. You can reduce that further if you repla...

Good to know, 10ยบ
Thanks Ian, good info there. In the summer, if I were to use a bivy, I'd go absolutely minimalist on insulation.

Floor Matters

Worst case scenario, I'm stuck with the tent.
I think a WR bivy and a tarp is the ultimate solution here, but unfortunately, I need my shelters to go as far as humanly possible and I can't keep a quiver like I want to. I got an amazing ...

I have two packs; a lightweight pack and a big, indestructible monster. It's good to have something reliable to fall back on for deep winter, or trips where you're carrying extra gear for some...

Boreas Men's Buttermilk 40
Fit: This bag has a superb fit that places more pressure on your lower back, which distributes weight to the hips and keeps your upper back cool. I was impressed with how well this pack vented, even w...
