Re: Looking for a LW Fleece Vest
I'm a big fan of Patagonia's Capilene, for the reasons you mentioned (warm, but not too warm). It looks like they carry a tank top and t-shirt in a Capilene 2 (their fleece goes from 1-4 n...

I too bought a thermojet and have been quite happy with it. I contacted customer service (since they are a small company it was probably the same person who makes the stove) to determine which size...

Re: Lightweight Gear Excluding Smaller Wallets
One of the great discoveries I made when I first started looking into ultralight gear was how affordable it is. While there are plenty of places that sell cutting edge, expensive equipment, there a...

Re: Full zip wind pants
Another option I just though about is to use basketball type warm-ups. These have buttons down the side for easy removal. I think some of them are just nylon, so they would be light. I'm afraid...

Re: OR Stratus mitts
Dane, I've seen the Stratus (almost bought them) and I think your comparison is correct.

Re: Re: MEC Mittens
Laurie, Are you in Canada? I should have mentioned that the one thing I don't like is their shipping options to the U.S. (expensive and requires pickup). On the U.S.P.S. note it said that I m...

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...

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
I am very happy with my Ultrapod Mini. It does what is supposed to do very well. You often have to be resourceful with it; but with a little imagination, you can take great pictures. For example, if y...

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...
