Aquamira Frontier Pro vs Frontier
I carry the Aquamira Frontier drinking straw as a backup system (with chemicals) to use in case my Steripen fails or the water is particulary murky. I consider the Frontier a disposable (single t...

Durability and comfort of Neo Air vs. Big Agnes pads
Ken - Thanks, I did see that thread and am still trying to find the Large Neoair in Canada. I did find one online in the USA but it would have cost me over $200 USD to get it to Canada so I had...

Seedhouse 1 vs Fly Creek - comparison
Since I've used a Seedhouse 1 since 2006, I've gotten used to the small vestibule. Besides, I don't really have any gear to put in the vestibule except for rain gear and sometimes my sh...

Soliciting tent opinions...

BA Copper Spur UL2 design flaws--am I wrong?
I'm not sure why you would pick this light weight, 3 season dome for a trip that is known to have high winds? This is a dual vestibule dome tent, which by design will become a sail in even mod...
