Just another great Snow Peak product..I assume people go with the double wall to help insulate hot liquids better?? But single wall is the only way I'll go, its a little lighter and I dont have to worry about it blowing up on me when using on an open flame. I love the simple, straight to the point designs with Snow Peak, if they would only drop the price a little??? LOL

Ive logged many miles of night riding with an HID set up. This light is not quite that bright but would be sufficient for night riding. I could see it being a problem if your bombing down a technical descent at 40 mph but unless you only ride downhill this light should be enough. the problem you will run into is that the batteries go very fast in high mode and will automatically resort to low beam when the batteries start to go. Unless you dont mind spending a $100 a month on batteries I would look into a Light and Motion rechargeable set up but thats just me.....

So far I really like this light..Im really surprised at how far LED technology has come over the years...just a few years ago if you wanted something this bright (actually brighter) you had to go with HID technology. My Light and Motion HID set up with 6hr lithium ion rechargeable battery was about a $700 set up, which I used for cycling mostly. I could ride full speed on my road bike or mtn bike with that set up. The Princeton tec headlamp isnt quite as bright but is very bright none the less. This is the first headlamp I've seen with LED technology where I would feel safe cycling at night. I'm more of a backpacker than a cyclist these days from old nagging injuries, but if I would ride my bike at night with this light it will most certainly work great while walking through the woods at night!

This is the original...Mine is probably 10 years old or so?? Still using the original ignitor and has been on more trips than I can even remember?? The new jetboil stoves look silly in my opinion. I have no idea why someone would pay more for the same thing?? even the TI version is not light enough to justify the cost. This is the only jetboil I use. If you really want light weight, nothing is lighter than the pop can hobo alcohol stoves. Takes up about the same amount of space for everything in my pack but weighs less than half of my jetboil set up..

The Atmos 65 is my first Osprey pack and so far I really love this pack...Ive done a couple of trips so far with it. Tha last being a 4 day backpack/fishing excursion in the Appalachians. I go semi-light but I enjoy living comfortably in the woods and this pack had just enough room for my tent, Big Agnes bag, Firstneed XL purifyer, water bag, all of my little odds and ends, all of my food and fishing gear. I was just a hair over 35lbs with all of this. I know I could pack for a full week if done properly. the suspension system is really nice, which makes the pack ride just right! Im 5'8 and went with a med.

I have this very tent and love it....tough to beat considering the price! and the fact that all Mtn Hrdwr tents are rain room tested! I bought mine for around $150 and have used it on 3 seperate backpacking trips this winter, sleeping about 9 days total in this tent. Its a fairly light "roomy" 2 person tent with dual doors and dual vaestibules! I highly doubt there is a better 2 man tent currently on the market in this price range???
