Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got one of these little units. It brings the water to a fast boil in a quick amount of time due to its closed nature. It is light to pack and small enough to fit easily in many little nooks and crannies. It is one of my go to units anymore. A winner. Whistle? I don't need no damn whistle.

Yo bud; I'm 5'4" and just over 220 lbs with muscular torso. I bought a large and it fit spot on except I do look like Michelin man. But I would rather be warm as I live in Interior Alaska. The Chillwave has done me right. At -15 to -20 I wear only a long sleeved UnderArmor t shirt underneath. When it does get really cold, I wear a medium weight wool shirt along with UA shirt. I add a DomePerignon hat and I am good to go at -40 or lower. The fit again is superb for my body.

Driss; This coat is cold enough for ALASKAN winters. How do I know? I live in Interior Alaska where the real cold is. I have never worn anything but an UnderArmour long sleeved t-shirt underneath. I have always been more than toasty. Anything above O*F and you will have to unzip a little. It will most certainly be more than adequate for Canadian temps.

I had one of these Dome Perignon beanies last winter. I loved it. Someone else loved it too and stole it. Well I have another now and it is the best winter hat I have ever worn. Used the last one in -50 temps and it worked like a charm. The comfort wearing this is outstanding. Secure, warm and like wearing a hot pillow on your head. Windproof too so those icy blasts do not numb your skull. You might be a numbskull but your skull won't be numb.

Tim and Andrew; I don't care what any manual says. I am holding an Exos 34 in my lap right now and after having examined every square inch of this Osprey bag have determined there is NOT a vertical zippered access to this bag. There is NO zippered access to this bag anywhere on it except the two pockets on the lid and the two mesh pockets on hip belt. It is a simple, functional, lightweight, toploader that is a joy to carry.

Finally, a wind hat that really works. The wind was blocked, the snow skittered off it and warmth was maintained recently on an outing with blowing snow and temps of 20*F. The fit is nice and stretchy leaving no gaps around the forehead and covers the ears too. It is thick enough to be a standalone unit for warmth in moderate winter conditions. But best of all, a strong wind left no numb spots on my noggin while wearing this spiffy little, lightweight ice blocker. It is not expensive but great for middling winter temps say 0*F-20*F and for strong winds. I am thinking it will be great for summertime above timberline windy conditions in Interior Alaska also while not taking up heaps of room in the pack getting there. This Stoic windblock hat is surely a great find and in you spend anytime outdoors, this is a little known secret that should become well known as it performs spectacularly in every function of cold, wind and packing scenarios known to man. Not only that, the price is way less than many big name units that do not perform as well.

This Mountain Hardware G50 softshell is nothing if not versatile. It does indeed block wind. It sheds snow. It breathes. I took an outing around town when the temp was hovering around 20*F and blowing snow. It performed with perfection. I was shielded from the wind and snow and with only a t-shirt underneath, I was totally comfortable. Just for grins, I tried it under my down jacket as a layer and it not only fit well, it added a great amount of warmth. And if that isn't enough, the quality and looks of this nifty unit is perfect for those party scenes and around town look-abouts. This is my new go-to jacket. Light enough to fit in a pack and stylish enough to wear for recreation and entertainment scenes. Do yourself a favor and slip into one of these things....you will feel like you've evolved into another level of comfort. The FEEL is fantastic. Buy it. I did. And boy am I glad I did.

This FILTER filters out many things including bacteria. But if you have things like virus in your water source, you would be better off buying a water PURIFIER which can be found sold alongside many FILTERS. They are somewhat more expensive but if you are in an area where the water in your environment is so contaminated; I would go for a PURIFIER instead of a mere FILTER.

This spoon is lightweight. So lightweight you appreciate its lack of gravity pull. The handle folds so that it is a miniscule package in your kit.
The base of the spoon when used to cook up a mess of eggs or soup is a real chore reduction utensil. It holds a significant amount of product when stirring and the same large amount if serving out of a cooking container to several people. It stops arguments and hurt feelings as it has built in measuring marks ensuring everyone has a fair share. I really like this spoon. If you choose to buy this spoon, I think you will realize you have made a good decision. Bon Appetite, Appetire, oh hell, good eating.

I have had a number of appliances that are supposed to work with the self-igniter. Virtually every one of them have failed within three days of using them the first time. Maybe I am just throwing off strong vibes that break them hahaha but I would advise just buying the item without them and use a small bic. Works virtually every time. Break those piezo pieces of crap off and rest your mind and the fraction of an ounce it loses will rest your back.

This stove does not fold at all. It is lighter than the regular Crux that folds though. The difference is a stove that folds into a smaller space versus a simpler stove that weighs less but has a larger packable footprint.
