foil pouch fuel container
I have been using a container of this type for methanol for awhile now. I get mine at a Japanes grocery store. I just decided after my last weekend trip to give up on them, actually. My third o...

Waterproof pertex quantum?
The water did come through the seams. And everywhere else. The Montane Slipstream Jacket is not waterproof (I hope it isn't advertized that way). A 3-oz waterproof jacket with the breathability...
