FF Good Choice
The FF is a great choice. If I wanted a hoodless bag, I'd probably go the same way. As a note, I have an Alsek and really love it, although I primarily got it because I split time between a ...

Favorite Packs
All mentioned here so far are good choices. To toss in my favorites - I like Gossamer Gear and Hyperlite Mountain. Both are great companies and have great products. If you need a bit more volume...

Re: They work well
I use the mini groundhogs lots in hard soil here in the Colorado Rockies and have never had one break on me yet. I find that they're about the same as the Y stakes with just a tiny bit more str...

WTB: Square Tarp
Looking to buy a square tarp. 8.5x8.5 or 9x9 preferred. Cuben or silnylon okay (especially looking for cuben), depending on price. I like the looks of the ZPacks 8.5 foot square cuben, but don'...

Own Both - Use One
I still own both - a Fly Creek UL2 for those very rare instances when I go to ground for a trip. Honestly, though, I hang absolutely every time I can. The tent is only for emergency trip backup.
