Re: vent on older six moons design wild oasis
I have a used WO that I don't know the age of, but it definately has a vent. The vent is pretty small, maybe only the size of a large fist, at the very top of the tarp near the grommet for the ...

Re: cuben bear bags
Zpacks has a food bag, but it's only 12L. Bottom of page: . Maybe 20L is an overestimate? Two bags are better odds should something happen to one. But I bet hanging two bear bags will take ...

Re: Steripen Opti Batteries
SteriPen: I use the light-blue Tenergy 900 mAh 3.0V Li-Ion batteries, which are about 3.4V off the charger, IIRC. Zebralight (H30): I use black-and-silver AW 750 mAh 3.7V Li-Ion batteries, which...

One-handed Scissors?
I have three knives that I can open and close one-handed. I find it faster and safer than using two hands. Anyone know of scissors that can be opened and closed one-handed? Even stand-alone is OK.

Re: Battery Charger Help

Re: LED Headlamps and Lithium Batteries
Yup. Energizer Li batts are abt 1.6V, so a set of three will yield 4.8V, not the 4.5V the circuit expects. You can always email PT for a definitive answer. Most manuf. have taken note of Energizer ...

Re: Re: The perfect ultralight flashlight?
+1 on the 4 Sevens Quark Mini 123, but only b/c I got the warm-tint LED. For backcountry use, the warm tint is soooo much better at differentiating natural color tones. It's like having x-ray v...
