Hoods
Hoods for sure on any decently warm puffy (>4oz down). For summer weight insulating layers it doesn't matter as much. I still like them but I can use either.

Hopefully DeLorme doesn't rest on their laurels like Spot. There's huge potential to take satellite communication to the next level. Thanks for the discussion guys. Gotta run off to Carm...

Titanium
My experience is that if you put a sharp bend in titanium foil it can crack if it's close to 180 degrees and semi-creased. I've had that happen once or twice. Aluminum does it much easier, ...

Thanks for posting pictures Ivo. Your work is Interesting. I'll try to comment but it's tough to imagine the full functionality without trying them in person. The ideal closure should pr...

DeLorme
Obviously we disagree on what's involved with adding this functionality. I believe that: 1) The coding required is routine (yes I can code in a few languages) 2) No additional storage is re...

DeLorme
My underlying complaint is that DeLorme seems to be trying to extract as much money as possible from their userbase while they have the powerful yet ephemeral position of being the only provider. I...

Cones
It does seem like TD only offers standalone cones to existing customers. If enough demand exists they might change this. Not that many people want to buy a 12-10 and a Starlyte stove when they only...

DeLorme
Admittedly I haven't put the research into this to offer any sort of credible critique. I picked up a used SE for $180 recently so maybe there's also a bit of envy here. Previously I was ho...

Ozzy Thanks for the ride offer. I'd certainly be happy to bus over to Port Townsend for a ride down (I presume this is what you meant by PA to PT). I'm still working on spousal approval so...

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...

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...
