Re: REI UL 60 pack

Re: test: TNF DIAD not breathable!?
Brett: If it will make you feel any better, my Sierra Designs Isotope jacket is even less breathable than your DIAD! The "waterproof" Isotope does keep me dry, however, so long as it doesn't ra...

Big Sky Ultra C Aluminum Tent Stakes
I've been using titanium shepherd hook stakes for years now -- loving their ultralight weight but disappointed with their suboptimal ground penetration and holding power. These stakes can be bent...

Titanium Goat Adjustable CF Trekking Poles
I received my pair and went on a moderate 2-hour hike today (approx. 2,000 ft. elevation gain over 2.7 miles -- then returning back down). I find the specs to be accurate, and the poles a beauty to...
