Converting Water Bottle to Hydration System
I've found that the Platypus drinking tube assembly fits many narrow-mouth supermarket water bottles! I've tried these two methods with success: 1. Simply screw on the tubing ass...

Re: Just Got My Marmot Ion

Re: stripes
Denis: That's a lot of floor to coat, and doesn't provide much protection at all. If there're things (think cactus or maybe even pine) sharp enough to poke through the floor, a coat...

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...
