About Me I have a tendency to buy the display item of pieces of gear that I want because, typically, they seem to be the only "smalls" that outfitters keep in stock.

My trail name, 'demo' comes from a display Thermarest pillow I bought that has the word DEMO marked in very large letters in permanent marker.

Re: Western Mountaineering Pod 15
I have the Pod 30 and fit a regular foam pad in it fine. It's obvious that it is kind of designed for a tapered pad, but the adjusters allow it to take a number of shapes.

no kidding. Through a slight miscommunication between myself and Brian @ ULA, I was shipped two identical ULA Conduit packs that arrived today. I figured I would make someone very happy by off...

Re: cleaning out my closet
pretty sure that is correct. the bag is about 2.5 years old and the fill weight comes in at 1lb. 4oz., so I think my stated weight above is right. Unfortunately, I'm having to look up the stats o...

My only complaints tend to line up the same as those from others. It seems, although I can't prove a shred of this, that they are in cahoots with Nalgene as bottles from said manufacturer are the...

Icebreaker Balaclava Lite
Nice little piece of headgear here. Impressive how much warmth it adds when on your head. My typical setup is wearing a Tilly hat during an entire trip and adding the balaclava when I need some wa...

Ibex Woolies Rib Zip T-Neck
I completely concur with everything the previous reviewer stated. Just as fair warning, like stated above, the little ribs in the fabric do make it clingy. However, this does give it the ideal effec...

This is indeed a great little pack. On a past trip, one of my accompanying backpackers made a comment about how it looked like a oversized daypack...that made me smile. Don't let that generalization...
