I just got this headlamp last week and took it out this weekend. I loved how super bright the high beam is for such a small headlamp. Plus it is water proof which is a huge plus for while I am canyoneering. Having the red LED is a plus at night so that bugs do not dive bomb my head and I love the dim able white LEDs for around camp was nice for reading and cooking. Overall a nice durable, waterproof and bright headlamp
I was a little skeptically when Thermarest came out with sleeping bags. I have loved their pads for many years, but was unsure the bags. After getting in one I fell in love with it instantly. This sleep system allows you to attach a pad that is either 20" or 25" wide. I like this because I can use my backpacking pad when I am backpacking and my car camping pad on car camping trips. The foot box and hood can move independent of the pad. This is huge plus for me because tend toss and turn. So when I am moving around in the bag the pad is not moving the bag is. I can even curl up in the fetal position and bag will move with my body. The weight is great at under 2lbs. I have slept in a lot of bags over the years from, Marmot, North Face, Kelty , etc. and I have to say that this is by far the most comfortable bag that I have ever been in.
I used this last summer on several backpacking trip in Colorado. I used it to charge up iPhone up every night after using it all day for GPS, music and camera. I attached it to the outside of my pack while we hiked all day and it charged up over the course of the day. I get about 1.5 charges out of my iPhone 4S on a full charge. I usually charge it up at home before my trip via USB to make sure I have a full charge before I go. The product is rugged with the rubber over molding and the nice case it comes with.
Have you tried using water and baking soda? Use a 4:1 ratio of water to baking soda.
Call 1-800-527-1527. This will get you to warranty. The tent has a lifetime pole warranty so they should take care of you. Those damn New Yorkers.
My thought on replacing filters is if you are unsure you should replace it. If the cartridge is 20 years old i am almost sure that filter cartridage has been degrading to some degree. It is not worth getting sick. Most of those water bugs are nasty. If you have the same looking filter as above but with a white cartridge it a replacement cartridge should work.
The rack has a weight limit of 30lbs per bike. So your bikes are too heavy.
It is a trade off. The strainer is great for everything but rice. The lid locks on so that the food can not spill. I have used the car camping a bunch. I have put a SS mug or other piece of metal over the holes and the rice has turned out great.
Yes it will fit 20in rectangle shaped pads. The 25 wide would not fit.
Yes this will fit. You can use 48 in bars. However on the vehicle that large I would use the 58 in bars to give you more room on your rack for bikes, boats, cargo box, ect. You will need to use the small claw that comes with the rail grabs. Locks are not included, but are recommend.
Yes read below
All Edelweiss ropes come treated with either Everdry or Super Everdry. The Everdry treatment developed by Edelweiss reduces water absorption by 50% and the Super Everdry by a further 25%. This has some huge advantages:
Treated ropes weigh less when exposed wet conditions
Yes both will work.
Yeah you could. Usually these are used if you are going to leave a permeant anchor. If you are going to take down the anchor then I would just us lockers. It is easier. Otherwise you need to string the anchor with these before you tie any knots.
The vestibule is pretty small. No way you can put 2 packs boot and cook at the same time. The tent is super light but not very roomy inside the tent or vestibule. A lot of people use the 2 man as a roomy one man. If you want something roomier get the 3 man.
No it does not come with a foot print and one is really not nessecary. If you are sleeping on rock a lot it might be worth carrying a tarp. Grabber and SOL make some great tarps that are heat reflective and super durable. Plus this will add some warmth.
The tool can be removed. The lock actually goes into the tool which is the cover for the bolt you adjust. It just pops out. The tool is just an Allen wrench. It is very simple and when you see it in person you will totally get it.
The women's model will be shipping from Thermarest in the next 30 days. There was a delay in the women's model being released to meet the demand on the regular size.
Yakima does not build a Horizontal Mighty Mount for your car with factor bars. Yakima is moving away from these except for a few specific fits. You will need to use the universal might mount. They come in sets of 4. Depending on what accessories you are using will determine the amount you need. Bike racks will require 3 per bike, Boat mount will vary depending on your setup. If you are unsure write your question with you are putting on top of the car we will get you the right amount of universal might mounts.
If you want something very comfortable for winter use this would be a great choice. It packs down to the size of a nalagen bottle and is extremely light for the warmth and comfort.
The men's version has cut outs of foam the entire length of the pad. The women's pad has solid foam through 3/4 of the pad. They are sized differently. The men's reg is 6ft and the women's is 5'8". With the men's being long and more cut outs the pads actually way nearly the same. If you are on the shorter side save the 5 bucks and buy the women's model. More warmth for the same weight.
