Re: TorsoLite improvements
Speaking of MontBell, I've been wanting to try their inflatable pillow. From what I hear, it's a terrific UL inflatable pillow. Unfortunately, it's always sold out! :(

Re: SMD product durability

Help Me Replace My UL Windshirt
I have a 2004 GoLite UL windshirt (the Helios) which is as light and as breathable as plastic food wrap. I am looking for an upgrade -- meaning REAL breathability for hikes at moderate humidity ...

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...
