FlexAir UL Pillow
http://www.backpackinglight.com/cgi-bin/backpackinglight/flexair_ultralight_pillow.html I remember sometime ago, there was a "group purchase" of sorts. For those who have used this, how do you ...

Re: filters, particle size, turbidity, etc.
Paul and Rick: Interesting discussion -- and yes, both of you are still very much on topic. Hopefully, someone can tell me either the mesh filter is sufficient -- or a waste of time (and why). ...

Re: Water Treatment Question for Dr. Jordan (Or Any Water Expert)
Paul: Feel free to try it out. BTW, there's no need to buy expensive Platypus caps. Some of the el cheapo supermarket store brand bottled water caps fit perfectly! Get one or two of those and...

Re: Tiny day pack
Very nice, Franco. Here's something similar, available in the States. Alas, it is a bit heavier, clocking in at 6.4oz. https://www2.montbell.com/america/asp/products/Spg_shosai.asp?cat=1402&...

Re: Water Treatment Question for Dr. Jordan (Or Any Water Expert)
Hi Paul: Thanks for both the short and long answers. If indeed, only particles that are big enough to be visible will affect the efficacy of chemicals, then I think using my mesh coffee filter ...

Water Treatment Question for Dr. Jordan (Or Any Water Expert)
I currently replenish the water in my Platypus bladder by first pouring it through a piece of mesh coffee filter, then treating it with Aqua Mira (may switch over to KlearWater for its convenience)...

Re: Re: Comparing Lunar Solo and Rainbow
Hi Franco: Nah, I don't think I'll go for the CF poles just to cut out another 2 oz or so. If I do get a customized pole, it would be an attempt to get it in SHORTER pole sections -- say 12 to ...

Re: A more Durable G6
Hey Anon: The GoLite Dawn, you'll probably have to sew a pair of compression straps yourself. BPL gave this pack a good thumbs up when packed properly and a thumbs down when it's only half empt...

Comparing Lunar Solo and Rainbow
I have used a Lunar Solo, and now have the Rainbow as well -- although I have yet to actually use the latter -- except for backyard setup. It is truly inspiring to compare/contrast the ways two ...

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...
