Re: Gear Sale: Packs and Tents
I'll take the Mariposa. Mine is in great shape but it won't last forever and I wouldn't replace it with anything else. I'll try to PM you since I don't see an email address.

Re: OR Ion Windshirt?
I recently purchased this product and so far I am very pleased with it. It was on sale at REI Outlet so I thought I would give it a whack. I owned one one before this and tried to seam-seal it to...

I put the GPS in battery save mode and use fresh Lithium batteries. I also really only use the GPS when I need/want it. I don't generally take tracks or do things that require it to be on for...

Re: Re: Poles - simpler without em

Pro-Tick Remedy Pro-Tick
I am so glad someone posted a review of this gizmo. First let me say that you can remove a tick with a pair of tweezers. The Pro-Tick Remedy tool is not multi-use like tweezers. That said, it w...

Repel Lemon Euculyptus Insect Spray
I am a huge fan of 3M Ultrathon largely because the stuff works REALLY WELL... for what I use it for. So this is sort of my "gold standard"... encapsulated DEET lotion. That said, differ...

Now here is a review you don't see every day. This was a very thoughtful gift from my dear wife. I am an avid guitar player but leave my music at home when I hike because a flat-top 6-string ...

What's with people that review gear they have never owned nor tested in the field? This is a mystery to me. Anyway, on to the Jetboil. I bought this because... I had an REI dividend and the...
