Pot Cozy
I got a pot cozy for the FireLite 1100 from AGG. Tin Man sent me cozy for free because of a delay in getting my order and shipping it out. He did NOT have to do this and I was not the least bit a...

Re: Re: Re: Took the plunge... Whisper Uberlight Pack
I just rolled it up "dry bag style" and closed it with the hook-and-loop fastener. I found this worked very well, actually. I had a silnylon pack cover that I used to keep it dry, but i...

Re: Took the plunge... Whisper Uberlight Pack
As a follow-up to my own post, I spent the weekend hiking with this pack and I can say I was very pleased. The pack was very comfortable. It rained all weekend so most things got pretty wet but a...

Re: Match the tool to the job
The Snow Peak GigaPower with it's windscreen works very, very well with the JetBoil pot. The simmer is the best I have ever used and I have cooked perfectly golden-brown pancakes and fried cra...

Took the plunge... Whisper Uberlight Pack
Well, I finally took the plunge. I have been a faithful Mariposa user for I don't know how long, and will remain so for certain hikes. That said, I have a base pack weight that easily works w...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Titan pot
LMAO! It looks like you were either testing pots and stoves or you were trying to re-animate dead body parts. Either way I totally approve of your lab setup. Like I said, I wasn't studying...

Pro-Tick Remedy Pro-Tick
I am so glad someone posted a review of this gizmo. First let me say that you can remove a tick with a pair of tweezers. The Pro-Tick Remedy tool is not multi-use like tweezers. That said, it w...

I am a huge fan of 3M Ultrathon largely because the stuff works REALLY WELL... for what I use it for. So this is sort of my "gold standard"... encapsulated DEET lotion. That said, differ...

Now here is a review you don't see every day. This was a very thoughtful gift from my dear wife. I am an avid guitar player but leave my music at home when I hike because a flat-top 6-string ...

Jetboil Personal Cooking System
What's with people that review gear they have never owned nor tested in the field? This is a mystery to me. Anyway, on to the Jetboil. I bought this because... I had an REI dividend and the...
