Canadian Dollar
On the flip side, now is a great time to be selling gear. Selling a $100 item nets Canadians $125.

"1) Good to know I can nix the liner, though I think I need to seam seal my pack first. 2) The Unaweep may be overkill, but it's the lightest pack that I could find that is comfortable fo...

I've spent about 10 nights in this tent. What I like: - Carbon Fibre Poles are ridiculously light - 10,000mm waterproof floor is impressive for an UL tent - Overall trail weight under 3 l...

This light is unreal if you need a huge amount of light for hiking at night. I use this light with NiMH 2700mAh batteries and the life is good. If I run it on 3 watt high I get a couple hours. If y...
