Full Zip Wind Pants
Does anyone make a full zip wind pant? I wear a pair of full zip fleece pants when I go cross country skiing and they serve me well. I would like to put something over them when things get breezy, ...

MEC Mittens
The MEC mittens arrived and I weighed them at 6.1 oz. or 173 grams (medium). Though they are listed on the women's page, they came with a sticker saying unisex sizing. They are rather large for...

Thoughts on the MLD eVent mitts and other points
I'm not surprised that they are sold out of the mitts. There is a lot of pent up demand for something like this (the price might have deterred some people, but not during the holidays). Persona...

Cuben Fiber Tent?
I've noticed that people are selling Cuben Fiber tarps, stuff sacks, packs and plenty of do it yourself gear. However, I'm surprised that no one (to my knowledge) has started using Cuben Fi...

Big Puffy Mitts
Outdoor Research sells a mitten system which consists of a big puffy mitten and shell. They used to sell them separately, but don't any more. My wife has the shell, but wants a big mitten to go ins...

Online Backpack Trip Listing
I like the idea of organizing the forum primarily by region but being able to query other data as well. I'm not sure what software is out there to do that, but it would be nice if you could enter i...

Re: Me thinks they doth protest too much!
I agree with Ron. I don't think there is an anti-wool bias here at all. In general, I think this site has far less bias than most. I can't think of any backpacking organization (including much larg...

Water Location
If you have filled your water container(s) then it is probably the densest and/or heaviest thing in your pack. I use a bladder (platypus) and am glad that both my day pack and backpacking pack have...

Gossamer Gear
Another GG review, another five out of five. This time, I broke a pole section (the lower part, or tip). It was my fault (I stepped on it) and not the fault of the pole. A call to customer support (I&...

Ultrapod Mini

Pentax Optio WP
I very much like my Optio WPi (6 mp). I have found the waterproof feature to be of much greater value than I originally expected. For winter pictures, it is really handy to set up a picture and not wo...

Eureka Zues II Exo
I bought this tent a few years ago, before I knew about tarp tents. I have been happy with it, but it is a little smaller and heavier than a tarp tent. As a free standing tent, it is more round, which...
