Re: Ultra Light Rain Jacket
I got one for a present. Men's size large weighed just 4.5 oz!!! However, it failed a quick, 5-min shower test miserably. My hair was completely wet (worthless hood) and my tee shirt was comple...

Re:: GoLite Reed rainpants?
True, Ryan did not select GoLite's rain pants, but it would be more useful to go deeper and look at what he took instead. Ryan's rain gear for his Arctic 1000 venture were: o GoLite Virga (pre...

Big Sky Ultra C Aluminum Tent Stakes

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...
