Capability Down pants!
I owe a cookie to anyone who catches the obscure name reference without googling. We made our first down garment. For this first (post-muslin) mock-up we used some ripstop from JoAnn's. ...

SMD 2-p Haven
I think it is a very nice design. Allows sitting up, shared bedding, no entry/pole conflict. Good competitor for anything in the mainstream backpacking world. Full mesh is not a waste. Here is a...

Ben's Backwoods Online Retailer
He caters more to the bushcraft market than the UL market. Good selection of Moras. Shipping cost is reasonable. When I destroyed my plastic handled Mora Triflex with poor baton technique, he let m...

Backpacking Light MiniDrop 0.35-oz Dropper Bottles (7 pack)
