Re: MLD Funky Proto Sale
Wow, here on Pacific Coast Time I'm glad I don't sleep in like in my college days, I would have missed this entirely! Thanks Ron, looking forward to the new Patrol shelter.

John, believe me, if I had the money, I would own everything made by Mountain Laurel Designs, but I am looking at the Golite because of the sale. But a sale is only good if the product is good f...

Re: Lair 1
No other thoughts on the Lair 1? Any experience using it for 2 people or solo? I'd be using it primarily solo in Sierra summers. Anything would be appreciated.

The Golite Lair 1 is on sale at STP as many of you know, but I've heard some take issue with its length. According to the review on this site, it's 8 feet long, but I figure with the clo...

The Sol Patrol pants look cool, except they - along with every other pair of pants on the website - don't come in long inseams for us tall skinny folks! Discrimination I say! We pay more ...

Mountain Hardwear Phantom 32 F, 800 down
The phantom 32 was my first light-weight item, and is still my favorite. Loft is great, the hood fits great, and there is enough room for me to add a down jacket or vest. The one downside is the .85 ...
