Re: Re. Mid vs Trailstar
Mind you, I'm the local mid pimp- I'll talk them up any chance I get. Bear that in mind. If the DuoMid might be cramped for two- and I agree that it is- consider the DuoMid XL. Or the ...

Mid vs Trailstar
I have already stated my opinion that the DuoMid truly shines as a palace for one, rather than as a cramped ghetto for two. :) I haven't had a chance to play with the DuoMid XL so I cannot co...

Yeah, I have read that Mee has more water, in my brief research. Ideally, I guess, descend Knowles and ascend Mee? The Youngs/Lean-To loop is another backup that I have investigated in case the...

I haven't used the Double Moment, but I used to have a 1P Moment and, yes, it is tough to argue that you wouldn't be able to find two tie-down points almost anywhere. Wicked fast to set up...

Mee/Knowles water
Awesome. Can I ask a favor? If you do Mee/Knowles please PM me when you get back and let me know what the water situation is like there? There is always a possibility we may do that instead of D...

IMHO footprints are a waste
I suspect that Tyvek might actually weigh more. But there are different thicknesses of Tyvek, so I could be wrong. It's certainly cheap and MYOG, though, which has it's appeal. Persona...

I really don't obsess about cal/gram either. I do watch total calories to be sure that I have enough, but otherwise just pick stuff that I know I'll eat. Exertion and altitude are appetit...

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...

Bushnell SolarWrap Mini
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...
