My Locale Greater Yellowstone
About Me Backpacking Light Magazine Publisher and co-founder. My "home" backpacking areas are the national parks and wilderness areas of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. My own approach to ultralight backpacking currently focuses on reducing the number of items in my kit, to achieve simplicity and efficiency on the trail, and applying UL techniques and materials to long hikes w/o resupply.

RX100 +1
I'm a diehard RX100 user and have been since version 1. I also shoot a lot of video, and the RX100 shoots beautiful stuff with good stabilization for handheld shots. Here's a sample from...

Thanks for your feedback everyone. I like trying new things. Most things I try will be duds. Hopefully we can get a few gems out in the process :)

Leukotape P Sports Tape
I'm with Al. There is no competition here. Anybody still using duct tape is living in the dark ages. Leukotape P is breathable, stretchy (and thus, form-fitting), and most important, resilient. I put ...

MSR Titan Kettle
Also one of my favorite pots. I like the fact that the lid is very tight because I don't have to carry a stuff sack to contain my cook kit in my pack; however, the tight lid makes it hard to check the...

Few headlights really jazz me up. This is one of them. Even though it's now more than a year old, its ruggedness, light quality, and battery miserness remains outstanding. It's also really easy ...

My Virga is the pre-production model, I think the same one Don had; 6 oz jacket, no pockets, straight hem, 2 layer fabric. I think the production model will be 2.5 layer and have a pocket. I used i...

Coleman Exponent Xtreme Stove
A serious competitor to the Simmerlite, because of its fuel efficiency and cleaner burning (better for tents, vestibules, snow caves, etc) for melting snow in the winter. There is still some question ...

Golite Hex 3
I use the Hex 3 for two applications: 1. Family camping. 2. Winter ski trips as a shared shelter. For #1, we often use the enclosed Nest (car trips) and I made a velcro netting perimeter we use...
