lance cleaver's Bio

I'm just a guy from a small town in Mississippi. I now live in the big "D". Or some of you may know it by the city slogan, "where's your D spot?" Texas, HAHA! Life here isn't too bad, if you don't mind all the dudes who'd rather have a pedicure than to get outside. I try to get out as much as I can, whether it be on my bike, hiking or camping, though this part of the country has little to offer for people like me. I just love to be outdoors. it's just wierd how comforting nature is.

I love these and will continue to use these until something better comes around! The only drawback for me is, Unless they are stuffed pretty full they are tough to get all of the air out of, which robs me of a little room in my pack. I can testify that these will keep your clothes or whatever you throw inside nice and dry. I only wish there were some way to release the extra air more efficiently.

First off, I do like to relax in a hammock. On a lazy day they are great to lay in. However, if you are a tosser/turner when you sleep I would not recommend this or any other hammock shelter for camping. They are extremely restricting and Unless you are able to sleep in one position all night, I would stick with another form of shelter. If you don't mind being in one position, then by all means go ahead and enjoy being off of the hard ground. The only drawback besides that is the wind, it will cut right through the shelter, which can lead to a cold night. I would recommend this for warm weather camping.

I've had a great experience with these cases. I use this case for my first aid/survival kit. All of the things I need to keep dry, stay dry. I've never experience a problem. If I were gonna pack a camera inside, I would definitely make sure it's wrapped in a ziploc bag to be on the safe side. They're a little heavy, but they're great for organization. Can't go wrong with one of these if you ask me.

Every cook set i've used has either charred from the fire or either stuck inside the pot from cooking too long. Neither of those has happened to this set yet. They aren't as light as a titanium set, but personally i'm willing to carry the few extra ounces to have this in my bag. When I go out alone I take only the large pot, 1 bowl, one cup, which leaves room for my MSR pocket rocket and a small can of fuel. It can spill over with such a small stove since it's much larger in size, so be careful not to let it tip. Overall it's a great buy, and I assure you that you'll love it!

I really like this handle bar, my only complaint is that after about 20 min. of riding, my wrists ache. The length, the weight, and strength of these bars is amazing. If you have weak wrists, I think a bar with a higher rise will be a bit better.

I couldn't be happier with this tent! It's Light weight, packs up pretty good, the stakes are titanium! Breathablity is fantastic (obviously). The vestibules keep you and the floor dry in rainy conditions. On dry nights remove the fly and enjoy the stars! To save weight, take only the fly and footprint, that is if you don't mind some creepy crawly's.

This liner is definitely sufficient and I'm not knocking it. However the size is a bit cumbersome for those of us who need space in their packs. If you're more into recreational type camping rather than backpacking, then this will work well. Backpackers try a silk liner. I'd say you'll get an extra 5-7 degrees of warmth from this one. However, if you're doing some summer backpacking, you can cut out the sleeping bag all together to use this.

This is one of the best investments of all my gear! It runs a little short on length, so you may not wanna wear it "out and about". I'd recommend going up a size with this. For 20 degree weather all I need is a shirt underneath and this and I'm good. For windy days or rain use this bad boy under a waterproof layer/jacket and your good to go! Packs away into a small stuff sack, saving you a lot of room and weight. You'll think twice about packing a bulky fleece when you have this as an option. You will not be disappointed.

These shoes are a great buy. They look great and they're water resistant. It took a bit for me to break them in, but once I did I was very satisfied. I Love these shoes. The only reason I grade it 4 stars rather than 5, is because they cracked along the inside at around 20 miles. The terrain was extremely harsh and rocky, so I wouldn't expect many shoes to do as well as these. The traction and tread are great, and once worn in they are very comfortable to wear. You definitely wanna break them in before a hike. Reasonably priced.
