Five Star Sleeping/Sitting Pad
5 5

I give this a five star, rating. If you use it for what it is intended, you will be completely satisfied. I bought one about a year ago and it works very well as a seat and sleeping pad, the benefit of not worrying about puncturing a hole in your sleeping pad by using it as a seat to sit on is nice. It is so easy to open and close you will pop it out to sit on even when taking a short break for lunch, I have found the inflatables are too much trouble for this. I expect to get many years of use out of the Z-lite....

Great Little Lite Stove!
5 5

All of my back country cooking revolves around boiling water for coffee, and the freeze dried pouches. The Evernew Ti DX Stove Set works perfect for this. Outside temperature was 25 deg. F, with 5 mph wind ~ it boiled two cups (.5 liter) of water, with under 1.5 ounces (45 ml) of 180 proof ever-clear grain alcohol for fuel, in about eight minutes (using homemade foil wind screen). I use a Backcountry Ti 700ml pot, the stove set and wind screen fit comfortably inside, and the whole set up is very lite (stove and pot under 8 oz). I am a big fan of using alcohol stoves as the whole idea is Eco Friendly, from the manufacturing of the fuel to the end use out in the field. The DX stove Set is a bit pricey but it is well built and with care should last a lifetime. The stove set is advertised as a three fuel stove, I performed a test outside at home using small twigs about the size of my little finger and smaller, and to my surprise it worked very well too. If I ever run out of fuel on a trip and have to rely on natural fuel I'll write an update to this review at that time. I uploaded a photo of the set up in use.
