My Locale Wet & Humid Southeast....
About Me My stomping grounds are the SE US, and 90% of the time, somewhere on the AT in GA, TN, or NC. Other times I enjoy going to the Smokies, or other smaller wilderness areas such as the Savage Gulf area.
Most of my trips are between 2 - 5 days long, with rare 7 day long trips. My total pack weights are generally under 20 lbs, unless trying new gear, or carrying extra for the kids. In the dead of summer, I enjoy SUL hikes, and have given thought to XUL (almost there...)

Re: thanks for the research
I have really enjoyed using my Ex Light Anorak. I have owned both, the UL Down Inner Jacket and the Parka, as well as the regular Ex Light (not to mention the Alpine Light Down Parka, but it is too...

Re: Cat can stove
Like others, I found that it wasn't the best option... Sure, it was super cheap and super easy to make, but it is far from perfect... I have about 4 or 5 of them that I have tinkered with, and ...

Re: Failures
First off, that is awesome! I have never seen so many absolutely bad "reviews" in one spot... I started reading them, but quickly saw that it wasn't reviews as much as folks proving t...

"Andy, I have tried the wiggle to side to side on MSR Ground Hogs new and old style and half of them broke." This is the way it was for us last weekend. We managed to retrieve all but ...

Re: Luke's eVent jacket
Sorry, I thought you were wanting pockets in a sil jacket? If so, his sil jacket starts at $79 (almost half of the Montbell jacket) and has an average weight of 4.2 oz (2.5 oz lighter than the Vers...

Maybe see if Luke from Lukes Ultralite can add some to your existing jacket, or order a whole new one?

Re: easton nano nail stakes
I cannot comment on those stakes, but on a hike last weekend, a buddy broke 2 full size MSR Groundhogs (the real deals... not the cheap knock-offs) trying to get his tent staked out. The head on th...

Re: Reinforcing holes - back wall angle
I will be interested to hear how this turns out for you. I still have doubts about making a hole in the tarp... I feel like the stress alone will immediately begin to stress, and stretch, the hole,...

Re: Re: Cuben canopy & sil floor
Yeah, the price point is pretty significant. When I bought mine it was at a preorder price, which I think was around $390, so not cheap by any means... However, I think it's pretty evident here...
