Re: What???
Joshua: The top rim of the cup is just a bit wider than the bottom rim of the canister, so the entire canister will fit inside the cup when you drop it in upside down. There is no "hooking". ...

Re: Sierra designs Solomente tent
No experience, but the Marmot Alpinist 2P looks good too. There, a trio of lightweight winter tents: Would be curious to hear any actual experience with these three tents.

Re: Simplicity
Leaving cells, iPOD's, PDA's, etc. will go a long way to simplicity. For those who always bring their cameras, lenses, tripods, etc. -- leaving ALL of them at home from time to time can help foc...

Re: Mont-bell Alpine Ultra-Light Down sleeping bag
For a summer bag, I would rather carry a few ounces more in exchange for a full zipper -- which provides much better venting options...

Re: GoLite Jam v. Fanatic Fringe
I would echo Matthew's comments above. I too own a FF Thompson Peak, although I have altered mine, so a direct comparison is no longer possible. I added 3 web loops (think belt loops) near th...

Re: Have we hit the point of diminishing gains?
We often focus on the effect of gear weight reduction. But isn't that just half the equation? Our bodies need weights to increase strength and endurance! For that reason, I tend to take the mi...

Re: write weight on gear
May I play devil's advocate? 1. Writing with permanent marking will likely reduce the market value of your gear, should you ever decide to put it on Ebay, etc. 2. If you modify gear over ti...

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...

Micropur MP 1 Chlorine Dioxide Water Purifier Tablet
Comparison to Potable Aqua above is incorrect. For bacteria and viruses, Micropur is just as effective and easy to use (15 minutes treatment time). It is only for protozoa (e.g. cryptosporidium) t...
