ive always run sportivas for distance and nb minimus for lighter. Thinking of making the switch to salomon, tho ive been interested in the Bushidos from Sportiva.. Any diehards out there who have run Sportiva and Salomon and can stack up a comparison??

got this as a stocking stuffer one year...I prefer it over the tikka plus for backpacking cause its so straightfoward, slightly lighter and compact. Not to mention you can pull it out and attach it to trekking poles, girth hitch it to the inside of your tent as a lantern or around your nalgene in your tent at night time. Sweet gift

I've had this tent for 6 years and have to say, it is the most BOMBER shelter for the weight, ever. Bibler kills it. The single wall two pole set up is unbeatable...storming outside? Jump in, snap poles and you're sheltered. It has endured downpours in Alaska and mid winter in Colorado, and I've gotta say, it keeps the bad stuff out without condensation forming on the inside due to the unique toddtex material. The bathtub floor is bomber enough to pitch it in a puddle.

Only suggestion is get the Eldorado if you're more than 6'2". It's snug with two but not uncomfortable.

Big investment, but a tent that will last decades of heavy use.

I picked this thing up for $20 bucks and it's a gem. I use it on trail runs when I don't want my bulky Petzl Tika strapped to my dome. The rest of the time, it lives in my first aid kit as a backup, and has come in clutch on multiple occasions.

Great lightweight/backup headlamp that won't break bank.

We use these as standard issue with the Forest Service. Our cache is filled with these. It's a bear can...not much to say but the BV 500 isn't too heavy, and packs better than those black ones that require a coin or knife to open and have a lipped top.

Also, some of the lids make a perfect cutting board flipped upside down, though I've seen newer ones that have ridges that eliminate use.

The best MTB shoe on the market
5 5

These things are the beez neez. Love them to death. Comfortable Italian cycling shoes...yes please! They have responsive drive and with a pair of crankbrothers eggbeaters are utterly unstoppable. They're comfortable enough for miles of hike-a-bike yet stiff enough to use on road rides (my carbon cat-1's often get chucked to the side for these babies on long road rides). If you're investing in a mountain biking shoe, throw the extra dough and get these. They'll last you 5 years. or 2 if you're gnarly

Great pot. Picked this sucker up on steep & cheep and have loved it ever since. Boils water/melts snow quick at altitude, has a strainer in the lid for pasta. Simple, light. Fits a ton of stuff on the inside and snaps shut. The handle is also sturdy and stays cool.
