Grid is Not For Me
Eric, That confirms exactly what I'm talking about. An R1 piece is wasted unless you wear it right up against your skin or a thin baselayer. This is also the reason I didn't get a gri...

Custom Tents
Not to be a negative nancy, but I think the answer to custom BA tents is "Keep Dreaming." For one, the amount of options they already have is nearly unrivaled in modern tent manufactur...

One of the reasons I like this particular fleece over a lot of others is the simplicity. No pockets, no thumb loops, no hood, no plastic zipper pulls, no toggles, no liner. For a minimalist, it...

I will add this: if the temperatures are in the 30's-40's and it's not windy, leave your 9-oz windshirt at home. The fleece will be fine to regulate your temperature, and saving more th...

Storm-Testing to Come
I don't own a 4-season tent, so I try to camp in sheltered areas in midwinter, and I wouldn't open the door in snowy, windy weather. I have yet to put this thing through a storm, and no...

Lofty Fleece Layer

Kelty backpacks redwing 3100, red cloud 6650
I have two packs; a lightweight pack and a big, indestructible monster. It's good to have something reliable to fall back on for deep winter, or trips where you're carrying extra gear for some...

Boreas Men's Buttermilk 40
Fit: This bag has a superb fit that places more pressure on your lower back, which distributes weight to the hips and keeps your upper back cool. I was impressed with how well this pack vented, even w...
