Great stove. Simmers good. Solid construction. Dependable design. Makes some noise while running, but that's good...you know its still running when using it in daylight. slightly awkward to pack down. Solid stove to use for hardcore backpacking/winter camping. Solid, stable base. You really don't get better than this with a white gas stove.

I recommend the nova over the nova +. The design of the Nova + is only different in that the whole fuel line rotates to control flow. In my opinion, you can't properly control the fuel valve with the fuel line flopping around, and can't get enough torque when you shut off the stove with the fuel valve from the previous run.

Great sleeping pad for winter/snow camping. It's heavy for a pad, but light for the amount of R value (heat transfer resistance) you get. Very comfortable, but slow/difficult to inflate relative to typical thermorests. I would never use this pad for my typical three season camping (too heavy & too slow to inflate), but for winter, its the cat's meow.

I have used a Palisade for 4 years. It's a fantsitc backpack. It handles loads BEAUTIFULLY. It is comfortableon the back, tight fitting, and nimble. Although a little on the heavy side, the fit, comfort and quality make up for this in spades. It has what you need, and minimizes and silly extras. Short of it...Buy it. Unless you want an ultra light backpack, you are not going to do better than this. Note: Osprey also makes good packs as well.
