BPL Product Picture - what are those items? on 01/30/2009 11:37:39 MST Print View

I am willing to bet the dude in this picture

http://www.backpackinglight.com/cgi-bin/backpackinglight/merino_ul_ls_shirt.html

is using:

1.Backpacking Light Merino UL Shirt (Long-Sleeve) DUH!!!

2.Six Moons Designs Refuge X

3.BPL Pro 60 or 90 quilt

and I can't tell what trekking poles he's using.

I guessed all this without even doing any research, and that goes to show you how obsessed I am that I am able to identify specific products from specific manufacturers!

WOW, Sam!

You are clearly more of a gearhead and gear geek than I!

Yeah, those poles are a toughy. The merino shirt was a good guess!

The gold is the same color black diamond uses in a lot of climbing gear.

I would guess the poles are a prototype, or perhaps some that aren't marketed in the States currently. Sometimes BPL will do that, like the bamboo poles they reviewed a while back (are you listening Doug?). I would say that the orange is BPL-orange like in the logo. Probably made of carbon (is there any other kind?). Looks like they're of Komperdell manufacture (twistlocks and length markings).

It appears to have two identical sections and an extension , so not a trekking pole but a tent pole for a pyramid tent. Not one that I know.
