Re: Lightest camp chair ever
Cool! Looked weird but then I took 1/2" straps and made one. It totally works and is quite comfortable! I'd really be interesting in getting one to play with.

Re: WTB Childs Sleeping Bag 2/3yrs old.
The Bozeman Mountain Works Torsolite is perfect for a child this age. That's been my son's pad since birth (he's almost 4 now). For that matter, anything torso-length is a good plan...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Arctic tent
That's a good point Bob. Clips are definitely better in that you can stake the base out, add poles, and clip. That's not the impression I had by looking at the Allak but I might be missin...

Backpacking Light Firelite SUL-500 Cookpot
I've found this mug to be well-sized for solo trips and after a lot of field use, it's proven to be very durable. My first gen pot came with the sloppy lid but BPL was very quick to replace...
