Re: How do most members buy/sell/trade on this forum? Paypal? eBay link?

Re: Montbell stretch bags
Russell: The usable temp is downright seductive... but again, don't count on it being anywhere near comfortable. IMO, rather than 'wishing it were so' -- I suggest that you pick your MB bag b...

Re: SuperUltraLight Backpacks REVIEW SUMMARY
A 1800-2000 ci frameless pack is just about right for me when hiking for 2 or 3 days. I too dislike hanging things outside my pack (mainly due to aesthetics) -- with one exception: my tent. Wh...

Excellent Article

Re: Lifespan of FlexAir pillows
These pillows are meant for single use in doctor's office, etc. While they will actually last longer than that, you shouldn't count on more than 5 or so nights' usage before the seals give out. S...

Re: Sleeping Pad...Which Side UP??
The egg crate side should face up. Both the material and the air in between are supposed to help insulate you from the cold ground. On the other hand, if it isn't cold, you can use whichever si...

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...

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...
