My Locale Extreme northern Sierra Nevada
About Me I'm 60, single male. I had been in Retail Management for over 30 years. I have mostly solo bped since the early mid '70's. I XC some, not afraid to go alone, I also solo winter camp, even out in sub-zero temps. A few years ago, I went on a backcountry bp to Alaska, where I flew in by bush plane with five others into Wrangell/St. Elias NP. Since early 2010, I have been collecting vintage/antique camping and bp stoves, having acquired over 90 now. I like many outdoor activities, from bping to dirtbike riding, gardening.

Petzl e+Lite issues, goes beyond off
Hi Ken, I'll check into warranty issues, usually keep stuff, but then, things usually work, unless a receipt gets lost on batteries or the gear itself is damaged by batteries. Duane

Petzl e+Lite issues, goes beyond off
I checked a couple three places for reviews, not one person mentioned this issue. I'll have to leave it out, until ready to place on my head, when going to bed to read. As long as I remember ...

Western Mountaineering Caribou Alternatives
Gotta weigh the money out lay, to only save a few oz. over the Caribou weight. The weight savings also depends on what width and length quilt you get. I debated for quite some time getting anothe...
