I'd recommend the Wild Country Zephyros 2 Lite tent from these guys, there's also plenty of other lightweight options to consider there, but the above is good compromise between weight, ...
Those are pretty spectacular screwups! And if you were relying on them ... dangerous ones at that. Personally I've owned a Garmin for some years and I only rely on it ...
I believe its ripstop nylon. But I do remember it originally had a waterproofing treatment on both inside and outside the fly. The tent itself is well worn but the fly material ...

I love my Neo air x-lite. Hands down best piece of equipment I have bought. Unsurprisingly much more comfortable than the $10 foam mats I used before but also way better ...
>Cable ties are great for replacing buckles, splints, handcuffs for unruly people who overbook huts... love it!

Last year (2015) we got the fright of our lives cresting a peak by a glider that was well below the 500ft rule. Shot straight over us so low we ...

@madpom Yes ... totally agree with your experience. My shopping list includes: 1. 18650 Rechargeable batteries 2. A very clean even beam. (This is more important than most people think.) 3. Smoothly adjustable intensity 4. ...
