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...

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.

I dunno what the other reviewer is thinking. The Brio is an entry level pack that is not intended to be light weight at all. It weighs 2.1kg (4.5lbs) for the 50 liter (3000c"). A similar pack but...

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...
