Re: Re: Re: Wind pants?
Overall I feel comfortable in the Reed Pants. Unlike the Marmot PreCip pants, I have never felt ‘clammy’ or experienced moisture build up inside the Reed Pants. Although, if I knew for sure I w...

Photon Light Proton Personal Flashlight
I would give the Proton a 4 out of 5 score primarily because of its high cost ($69). It is an excellent light if you need to do any emergency signaling at night or if you need a high intensity beam fo...

Six Moon Designs Lunar Solo
I like the simplicity in the concept of the design. It is a combination of bivy sack and single wall tent with plenty of room that weighs in at 25 ounces. The bathtub floor and netting along the floor...
