Any large mid.
Or, really, any of the larger mids, like the MLD SuperMid. Ludicrously oversized for one person, but if you need the high door then you need the high door. Plus, it's a palace for up to three...

I usually end up hiking solo because of my career. I'm a surgeon, and I never know when I'll have a patient admitted for the weekend so it's hard to plan ahead, which means that any po...

lightweight 1P good in wind?
So, lightweight 1P that's good with wind? The "chill" thing really doesn't matter- keeping you warm isn't what tents are for. That's what your bag or quilt is for, and y...

Not for hygiene, though...
I have a S2S 10L Ultra-Sil 1.7oz bucket. But I have to admit that I rarely carry it. Even then, it's not for hygiene- for that, as others have said, I just use a wet bandana. Seven days with...

Southern Utah

Sierra Designs?
For hard-core cuddlers one of whom might want more venting than the other, how about the two-person version of the Sierra Designs "bed-style" bag?

I personally do prefer that option- there are several side hikes that can be done including down-canyon as you mention, and the routefinding with boyish "climbing around on rocks" thing d...

Mary Jane's Farm Sante Fe Pasta
I just got back from a Wind River Range traverse in which I tried a couple of Mary Jane's Farm meals for the first time- I had never heard of them- and I'm impressed. Fist, my caveat: I hav...

Very light, but lost points for a smaller battery capacity than competitors and for durability concerns. And, shouldn't we really have an Electronic category in Gear Reviews at this point? Put...

Ultimate Hiker's Gear Guide -Andrew Skurka book
Wow, how to rate this book? It is NOT meant for someone who is already an experienced UL hiker. There is nothing in this book that someone like that doesn't already know or can find out in fiv...

Klepper Double wood framed folding kayak
I own a Long Haul Mark 2, which is a copy of the Klepper Double. Though the fasteners vary very slightly the Klepper frame can use the Long Haul hull-skins and vice versa. The guy who builds the Lon...

Sawyer In-Line Filter
I have a slightly different kit- the 0.1 micron 4-way filter. Of the filters available I give it a 5. It's not perfect, but IMHO it is the best that is available, hands down. The 4-way kit come...
