Re: Blue Foam Foldable Pad Usage Update
Jhaura: I'd be happy to email some pics to you if you indicate your email address. But suffice to say, once folded flat and weighted for a day or two, the blue foam will easily fold flat goin...

Re: Tarptent designs & winter snow
1. Comparing the Lunar with all the HS Tarptents, the Lunar will deflect wind the best (due to its downward sloping hexagon shape). The HS tarptents are mostly longish tents with unsupported side...

Re: Pack size?
I use my GoLite Dawn for trips up to 3-4 days. I never have to shove things in tightly. I can do this because (1) I use a high fp down bag and (2) I stash my 2-pound tent up high -- secured by th...

Re: Another mini-LED light
For me, I prefer the Photon's very lightweight swivel clip. You can clip the LED light anywhere -- even right on your shirt -- and position the beam at almost any angle. REI charges a ridiculou...

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...
