Nike Vest
Insulating running vests have always seemed backwards to me. When I go for a run in cool conditions, my arms get cold while my torso still gets sweaty. For really cold runs I'd like a non-in...

Bob and Bike
Depending on the water, it might be plausible to tow the BOB with your raft. This idea is a little nuts, but if you in calm water and if you are using a large dry bag anyways with the BOB, you ...

Winter 0F Quilt
For use down to 0F, I like about 25oz of down. A quilt with just enough coverage might be warm enough with 20oz, while a larger diameter sleeping bag would need closer to 30oz to have the same warm...

Solo Inner

"Can the Duomid and inner be pitched as one?" Yes. My solo inner clips inside the mid and pitches as one. "The inner mesh I got is about 13oz." That's heavy for a solo ...

Mids can be pitched off the ground if desired. I see no difference in condensation potential. This is essentially a slightly asymmetrical mid that requires more stakes because it's slightly hex...

I'd rather it was a normal mid design with a sewn in inner. It looks like they've complicated the shape for no apparent advantage. The 360 protection is nice, but I wouldn't call it...

Cinch cords
I'm no Arcteryx fan, but I'm not sure corporate greed is the best explanation for the lack of cinch cords.

Fitz Roy, Frostline, Roan
Thanks Babak. I assume the 200g of down for the 2014 Fitz Roy is also for size large? It seems that the fill of the Fitz Roy (7oz for size large) is very comparable to the Frost Line (6.7oz for med...

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...

MSR Carbon Reflex 2
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...

I've had a Miox for over 2 years now and I've generally been happy with it. The battery life is excellent. As long as my batteries are relatively new, I have no worries about going on a we...
