After years of only using the CCH Hybrid Alien for small flared placements, I am now putting more Offest Master Cams on. I still keep a set or two of Aliens because they get in some placements better. But overall Metolius Offset Master Cam feel more bomber and are much more durable (although the jury is still out on the Kevlar cables). They are bomber and have a very narrow head that gets in tricky placements. Best of all, they are affordable and relatively easy to find (not always the case with Aliens). While the Black Diamond Camalot C3 is also great for tiny placements, it is not nearly as good for flared placements as either the Offset Master Cam or Hybrid Alien.

Designed with expeditions in mind, the Base Camp series of duffel bags are extremely durable and easy to carry. The Base Camp easily lashes to a sled for glacier travel and straps to Jeeps, buses, and even yaks. It has many carrying options and external compression straps for lugging through airports. It is made of durable, highly water-resistant fabric.The North Face Base Camp Duffel wins our SuperTopo Editors' Choice award. It is the top choice or near the top in every category we tested. We love how it carries and how easy it is to pack. While it is in the middle of the review for weight, it is amongst the lightest duffel bag with backpack straps and a D-shaped opening.
