This is a perfect ultralight cookset for one person. It could come up a bit short if you need enough water for two meals, and I have used it primarily as a tool for boiling water. However, if I do try "actual cooking" in the pot, I believe it will work better than in other set because of the depth-other pots are much shallower and therefore prone to liquid boiling over, etc. Since the pot fits down into the mug, the interior of the pot is free to pack in a micro stove or whatever (as opposed to other "nested" sets, which, though they fit together, they represent an overall bulk item in your pack). Also, in response to the reviewer who said the lid doesn't fit the mug, actually if you flip it over it does fit over the mug (just not tightly inside like it does in the pot). I'm impressed with the quality and highly recommend this set.

I needed a head lamp for evening trail runs. I have a Zipka (3 LED model) which is an extremely handy, lightweight item to have. But the Zipka just doesn't put out enough light for many situations. I bought the Myo 5 and was surprised how comfortable it is worn directly on your head (I've only had lights mounted on helmets). I can run in it and it's totally stable, light and comfortable. I can easily switch from the halogen spot to the LED, battery-saving mode. Love it.

I love this shirt. I mostly wear on trail runs, where I find that it does wick/breathe well. I have long arms and for once the sleeves aren't too short! Also, I like that it gives me a nice layer to take the chill off, but isn't as heavy as a lot of other similar tops. The fit is great but you may want to size up from your usual.

Went out for my first camp trip with the Big Agnes pad. The comfort of this pad makes it the top choice for me as a woman (think hips) and because I like to sleep on my side. I never felt the ground once. In fact, I felt as comfortable as I do in my bed at home. The Primaloft is just icing on the cake, as I believe I was able to get by with a lighter weight bag, but had this insulted barrier between me and the ground when it dipped below freezing. Nice.
