They look a lot like the Seal Skinz waterproof socks. These socks were also quite stretchy, but numerous online reports said they leak after mild use, which is why I've stuck with the Rocky one...

wiiawiwb: I sewed on a "stove jack" which is a patch of heat proof material with a hole for the pipe, and then a flap that covers the hole when the pipe isn't in place.

SS2 Hot Tent
This is the best picture I've got of the hot SS2. It'd be pretty tough to fit a proper inner inside the tent along with a wood stove. You could use the original inner and put the stove in t...

Wood Stove
I use a wood stove in my SS2. I made a silnylon floor that clips inside instead of the inner with a cutout for the stove area. Sleepers sleep in a V shape sorta parallel to the ridgeline. There'...

Small Rafts
If you're actually looking for a raft that is still semi-capable in mild whitewater (which it sounds like you are) then I can't be of much help other than speculating the weight and bulk of...

SMD Fusion

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...
