"buy once, cry once" If you are going liquid fuel this is the stove you want. Yes its heavy and oddly shaped but man can it cook. I have tried every liquid fuel i can get my hands on and it has eaten it up like it was trail mix. I would avoid tiki fuel though smells horrible. This think will burn every thing from White Gas to JP8 and jet fuel. Im on my second unit, the weld that holds the burner to the base broke on my first and it still runs.

I cannot praise these boots enough. They are trail runner comfortable out of the box and break in fast. The gore-tex liner means your foot will get a little moist but not the normal swamp that normally follows a day of hiking. They are water proof up to the brim or as close as any breathable boot can get (1+ hr in running water), even if you dunk your foot and the boot fills, it quickly expels the excess, meaning only a few minutes of squishy walking. I have gone through several pair of laces and the boot is far from dead. Like other reviewers mine have developed a crack right where the ball of the foot flexes. I think the sole material is just a little too rigid and extreme flex will crack it. Even with a crack the boot performs, It only allows a little water seepage that the boot soon expels. Buy a pair, and then a second so you will have them on that day long down the road that you finally retire these boots from the trail to a well deserved retirement of yard work.

Tough material that's still breathable enough not to turn your hike into a sauna. Functions both as a great rain barrier and wind barrier. I have used it countless times both in the woods and downtown. Its lightweight and compressable making it a "no excuse not to take" item. The only downfall is that it transfers heat, meaning in a cold rain or wind you need a insulating layer to stay warm, instead of dry but still cold

Exactly what you would expect from Arc'teryx, super tough and detail oriented. I wouldn't call this a carry-on but its one hell of a laptop bag. I can carry my laptop, tablet, kindle, pico projector, notebook (paper), and all the cords/peripherals, plus keys sunglasses ect. I love the little hidden slash pocket in the lower back, its great for Passports and other things. The straps are comfortable and disperse the weight just like any backpack. The reinforced tubular webbing top and side handles are great for holding as well especially like a briefcase.The side only entry is intuitive like a messenger bag. I would highly recommend this for someone who travels a lot with a laptop, you wont be disappointed. Its so tough that I doubt even the TSA could put a scratch on it. Well worth the price tag.

after a lot of use i have found only one advantage over rechargeable AAA's. This unit is pass-through capable,meaning that with the provided plug or a USB adapter you can use the light as it charges, even from a dead battery. if you have other AAA products rechargeable AAA's might be a better option but its up to you.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

The "best buy" of bags for those "uncertian temp" spring and fall treks and every summer hike where cooler nights are expected. I have used this with an ALPS razor in a hammock in sub freezing nights and been warm enough to sweat. It really is two bags in one and the only bag of this quality that can zip all the way open. The extra large zipper pull makes adjustments from the inside easy. Its spacious enough to allow plenty of movement. I'm 5'9" and the bag can cover my head and then some. If you are looking for a spring-fall bag pair this with a liner and you wont be disappointed. For you tree dwellers this is like two top quilts in one

a great collar. The addition of a milled aluminium leash point is perfect. properly adjusted the collar balances so that the leash point is always up. I have since changed collars, but not due to any failing of this collar. In fact I scavenged the buckle and leash attachment to make a waist belt/ running leash. I have had two Huskies pulling against the buckle and it held fast. I would say this is the best collar on the market in this style.
