Re: 30 Degree Underquilt Giveaway

How much does it weigh? It looks light. Maybe a pound?

Re: SnugPak Insulated Poncho Liner

A poncho liner that you can actually wear under a poncho. What a brilliant idea!

Re: External Frame Packs

I will do a review once I get it and try it out. The Osprey AG in the 50L size was on my short list. The AG series defiantly has an excellent reputation. The Ti-Arc will be replacing an Alice Pack. My goal is to limit my weight by limiting the capacity of my pack as well as going to lighter gear. As...

Re: Hard vs Soft Ferrocerium Fire Starters.

I've never found a magnesium bar that I liked. It is a pain in the rear to get enough shavings to do any good. You will notice that Canterbury is scraping over an area of over a foot to get that pile of shavings. Notice also it a big pile. Some time ago I bought 1/2 lb of magnesium shaving from a wo...

Re: Question on backpack sizes

It has an external frame made of Titanium which keep its weight to 2lbs 6oz. The Cuban backpack option is 36oz less. The ...

My First High End Hammock

I went all out and bought a Dutch Double Netless hammock in 1.0 Blue and Olive. Yes to double knotty mod and yes to the ridgeline. I also put a little bling on it with a whoopee hook suspension. I have not strung it up yet but I know that I'm going to love it. The other hammocks I was considering we...
