According to the manual for the tent it takes two people although three may make the process go faster!
Since no one else has answered your question I will try to help. I don't have the saber tooth crampons however I have the Petzl Dart and Petzl Vasak and they both fit fine in the bag with room to spare. Looking at the pictures I don't see why it wouldn't fit. You might check the Black Diamond Toolbox, it might be bigger.I'm pretty happy with this bag, its pretty light, protects my pack and its vented so I can spray a little wd-40 on my crampons when I get home and store them in the bag. If the truth be told there really aren't many solutions for carrying crampons...
Mac OS 10.2 or above, 350MHz G3 or faster, 128 MB RAM + 16MB video memory!
I have ridden chair lifts with a pack much the same size, sometimes they don't care and sometimes I have to hold the pack besides me. Your mileage will vary.
According to the Thule website this box will fit. I have a Subaru Baja that has a very short span between bars and this box fits great!
I have a Subaru Baja and I haven't had any issues with excessive noise, you can definatly tell its a little noisier but its not bad. I think this is probably one of the less noisy boxes out there however you are still mounting a box to your roof and you will have some extra noise.

You need the SteriPEN Sigg Bottle Adapter. I checked and backcountry does not carry it. If you google "SteriPEN Sigg Bottle Adapter" you will find a few places that carry it one is three letters and starts with an R....
Dry: No Its in the specifications...
Unless your experienced in setting up fixed lines for canyoning or caving I would HIGHLY recommend against using this for rappel. There are too many products that cost less than $30 that will be better for rappelling.Only on a single rope or a fixed line. Some people set it up for long rappels on the side of the rope that pulls against the knot, but that's not very safe. Petzl doesn't recommend rappelling with it, and it's just a lot easier to get an ATC and use that.To add to that, I love using this as a rappel device on fixed lines, it is a great and safe option for that.
Check Petzl's website, they have pictures.This device is more or less an advanced figure 8 rappel device. It is designed so you can load your rope on it without removing it from your belay loop or carabiner. It does take some practice to use it but once you figure out how to load it its pretty simple. A warning with small diameter ropes: USE the high friction mode! When using a small diameter rope on a long rappel (Say 200-300ft) you will start out VERY slow but gain speed very fast its crucial you have heavy leather rappel gloves and use the high friction mode.
I have both bottles and the optimus is slightly widers but hardly noticeable. The mouth of the bottle is quite different though. I can use my optimus stove with a optimus or msr bottle however the optimus bottle has a wide rim on the mouth of the bottle and my msr pump doesn't seal on the optimus bottle.
Nope. You will need to get matches or a lighter. I have had two stoves with auto ignitors and they both broke in the first year. Jetboil and Gigapower. Convient yes durable no...
Static ropes are way cheaper and usually monochromatic. But be damn sure you now what you're buying. Getting a dynamic rope when you wanted a static one is annoying, the other way around could kill you.A dynamic rope is stretchy and help soften a fall, a static rope is well static and has no give to it.The simple answer to tell them apart is check the tag on the rope before buying it. If it is a static rope it will say it on the tag. If you have an old rope and can't tell the difference then its time to buy a new rope...
If you are wanting to do a Tyrolean traverse with cable then you should check out the Petzl Tandem Cable or the Tandem Speed which are designed for both cable and rope. Be sure to follow all the manufactures instructions for using these devices. Be safe and wear a helmet.
I have found that it really depends on what boot your going to wear. If you wearing plastic boots like mountaineering or ski boots then you will need the XL but if your wearing some hiking boots then the L may fit. I wear a 11 size boot and I have the XL for both my plastic mountaineering boots and for my hiking boots.
I highly doubt it. I have a -15deg Down sleeping bag and a Bibler I-tent and once I add my other winter camping items My 70L bag is A wee bit full... This bag is 32L
There are quite a few differences. It appears from the picture that the Ocelot has the head and spike rivited on, the Raven is glued together with aircraft grade expoxy. (Rivets tend to rust over time) Looking at the shape of the head the raven appears to be slightly longer and is thinner where you hold it making it easier to hold with gloves. (Don't ever use an ice axe w/o gloves)I have a ice axe like the Simond, same head shape and design and I have the BD Raven Pro, The Raven Pro is always the ice axe I take and other sits near my front door.
Two possiblities: Wire diameter, being trango decided to use smaller wire thus making a lower rating or trango decided either in testing or for liability reasons that it should be 4.5kN.
I have these boots and they are bomber. They work great with strap on crampons. I have climbed and hiked with these for around three years. As they are heavy duty leather boots the break in time is pretty high but once you do get them broken in (probably a good 4-5 trips, around 50 miles or so) they fit like a glove. They have NO insulation in them other than what the leather provides. A good pair of expedition wool socks and not lacing them too tight will keep your feet warm for the most part. I have not had cold feet on day trips but for overnight trips I have had issues with the leather freezing making for cold feet the next day. Vapor barrier socks would probably do the trick for overnight trips but I generally resort to a pair of plastic boots for overnight trips in the snow. (Rental plastic boots are HORRIBLE as the inner boots are not molded for your feet.) You can't go wrong with these for summer or winter as long as you are don't mind the long break in time. You might try a pair of plastic boots with a liner that is thermal molded to your feet, I think you will be surprised. Also a high quality insole will make any boot a lot more comfy and warmer...
