My Locale Colorado Rockies
About Me I'm 45 years old, 6'4" and 195 lbs. I've backpacked in the Colorado Rockies, the Wasatch and Uinta mountains, and in Zions National Park. I mountain bike in the Colorado Rockies. I've kayaked in Yellowstone and on Flaming Gorge, and rafted the Green, Colorado and Snake rivers. My trips are usually a week long or less. I love to hike wherever I can. I'm an Assistant Scout Master and I'm often out with the Scouts. My immediate goal is to thru-hike the Colorado trail. I've lived in Utah, Ohio, Illinois, Argentina, California, and Colorado.

Roger, I was thinking more of the fireball that would happen with a lit stove. I agree that ones hearing would take a hit as well.

Re: BPL headnet
I have two head nets, one is little more than a mesh bag with a draw cord and the other is the BPL head net. I have no experience with nanoseeum but there is a huge difference in how fine the mesh ...

Re: Re: Re: Exploding Gas Canisters: The Hazard of Overheating
I could be wrong, but I think that given a height when seated of about 3 feet, an explosion at about 1 foot pretty much maximizes the amount of damage to anyone seated in close proximity to the sto...

Re: Eric, I own the MB, but..
Brett, I have the old Montbell UL Wind Jacket and that's part of why I'm not considering the pants. The weight is right but the durability is a concern and no leg zips. I looked at the ...
