    Supertarp for glassing?

    I’ve been debating between the kifaru supertarp and the paratarp. I’d like the space of the supertarp for sleeping but I’d also like to use the shelter for glassing under in the rain here in the PNW. Am I crazy for thinking I’ll set up the supertarp as a flat tarp to glass under or will I catch...

    let's talk emergency sleep/shelter setups

    Always have a puffy with me and a SOL emergency blanket plus fire starter. Not sure how warm an emergency blanket is but it would be wind proof at least. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    First alpine buck

    It was quite a bit bigger than a marmot, not a bear, and had all the markings of a wolverine. They have been spotted around here though they are very rare. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Best gloves for super wet and cold

    I use the mt baker mitt from outdoor research. I am in Washington on the wet side and they have worked well for me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Do they really climb 1500' or 2000'

    Where i hunt usually it’s 3000 feet to get up to the alpine. That’s before you start hunting. So 2000 is nothing really. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    High country mosquito repellent

    Another vote for picaridin. Thermacell also works for me. Haven’t used it above 5000 feet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Best tripod bino adapter

    I’ve had 3 of the vortex tripod adapters lose the little screw in the top rendering it useless. I’m done with that crap. Anybody have recommendations of what to use instead? I know outdoorsmans has a great system but I’m hoping not to spend a wack of money on a dumb little adapter. Still, all...

    Puffy Comparison: Tear It Up!

    I think people are talking past each other in terms of what works for each temperature. One guy still hunts, one guy hikes till he finds something, and another guy sits and glasses. All need different kinds of stuff. I’m a sit and glass guy and I am always cold. I don’t have a quality puffy so...
