Montrail Shoes
The Masochist is way more durable than the Bajada. My wife has been using the women's versions of these shoes and she got 400-500 miles on the Bajada's, while she's near 1000 miles on h...

Gear damage
The mesh tears won't spread too much. I have a pack with that mesh and tons of holes for years, and they haven't really grown. If you only use this pocket for bigger stuff (i.e. clothes) th...

"What is the weight of the Aquatabs?" 1.2g per 10 pack on my scale. They're way lighter, smaller and cheaper than Aqua Mira / Katadyn Pills. They're all I've used for y...

The plan (if I ever actually get around to doing this) is to not get caught, but even in that unlikely event there's pretty easy ways out. For example, the park isn't closed during the wint...

You should delay it until mid-January and poach the trail in the winter.

2015 BMWO
Tanner: That multi-route map is awesome. Thanks for doing that. What a great course. If the BMWO continues for many years to come, this one should be revisited at some point.

Nice Rex. It might be good to have a hard reset on there too. As I recall, Tanner's InReach needed one of those during the BMWO a few weeks ago but I'm not sure if he tried a soft reset.

They are great, but there are imperfections that can be a real problem. On a recent trip my Delorme InReach SE seemingly wouldn't turn on, despite just being fully charged. For days I could...

Mountain Laurel Designs Revelation
I really like my 2009 MLD Revelation pack. The 1.5oz cuben is great. I think it will last a very long time provided I don't take any good falls on rocky slopes. With some bungie cordage, MLD s...

I bought two of these Uberlight drysacks, a green 7L one for my GoLite Ultra 20 quilt and a orange 10L one for my wife's 15F rated 800FP MEC Merlin sleeping bag. The claimed weights for these d...

Petzl e+LITE
I really like the e+Lite. It's surprisingly bright and I appreciate the red light functionality in the tent. On high, this light is nearly as bright as my Tikka yet it weighs 1/3rd and has additio...

I initially bought the regular size NeoAir but I recently sold that and bought the small size instead to save 5oz. I've been really happy with the switch. The small NeoAir is just as comfortable, ...

I've been using my 2009 Jam all summer now. It's been a solid performer. I find it completely comfortable to 20lbs, fine to 25lbs and tolerable at 30lbs. My 2009 Jam weighed 26oz when I got...
