A well-rounded, all-purpose winter backpacking down parka that is under-$300. But has many of the features of more expensive winter parkas.
An inexpensive workhorse of a headlamp that is rechargeable via USB.
A review of the Gaia GPS app for Android and iOS-based devices. A powerful, flexible, and easy to use navigation tool.
A relatively light, compact, and quiet white gas stove. It was just marketed wrongly. And the stove came out at the wrong time.
A very large, no longer made “ultralight backpacking shelter” that I would never take backpacking. But works well for base camp.
I am loaning out this classic sleeping bag for a little bit. Some musings on why a sleeping bag or quilt is not an item to dirt bag if the budget permits.
A look back at an older shelter that is very versatile. And one I am thinking of cycling back in for some planned trips with possible mixed conditions.
A relatively light, very portable, effective, and just plain fun tool for trail maintenance. With some loppers and a Silky, a good basic tool kit is complete.
A strong and inexpensive alternative to both paracord and traditional outdoor accessory cord.
Long term review of a sleeping pad typically sold at Costco in the spring and summer. Comfortable, high R-value, durable, and reasonable in price.
