BA IAC vs MSR NeoAir
Ben, does your SL2 really weigh 2lb 13oz? And you don't mind the water soaking through the floor on wet ground? My 1st gen BA IAC was 25.5 oz, still 1.5 oz over spec. The second gen went to ...

BA IAC vs MSR NeoAir
Ok, there is now way in hell (or heaven) that the BA IAC pad has R4.1. I had the heat sucked out of me at 5C/40F on substrate dry earth, and at the same temp I would have been fine on 1" Therm...

Re: Plush Pads
I have the BA IAC and it's not 24 oz as spec'd, but 28 oz. It's also not as warm as my Thermarest with R2.2. I would estimate it at not more than R1.8. Bob, where did you get the R4.1 v...

DueNorth Carbide Microspikes by SureFoot

Re: Mini-Minit UL 1 Cup Coffee/ Tea Filters
Rick, make sure your grind is powder-fine, just a notch below Turkish on those grocery store ginders.

Alarm on Garmins
I believe that most if not all of the Garmin GPS units have alarms. The one on my Venture Cx is not loud, but it's a hec of a lot better than any wristwatch. It also has a Snooze function. I...

Mountain Equipment Co-op (Canada)
I totally agree with the reviewers above. MEC is now the REI of Canada, but greener I think. You can buy all the heavy gear you want and return it for whatever reason, and most of the profit goes to e...

This light is real beauty. At one ounce even, it's kinda like having a one pound sleeping bag. This is clearly the Western Mountaineering Hilite of headlights. Not perfect, but perfectly good and ...

I'm with you Brett, I always carry some good wine in my Atmos 50, usually a Fetzer Zinfandel. I also carry some single malt scotch in case the temps go lower than my bag rating. Anyway, the Atm...
