    Mystery Ranch fit

    I have an older Mystery Ranch backpacking pack that is a size medium - it fits great. I have an 18 inch torso. Sizing has changed since I bought this pack, however. The older yoke was more of a medium/large size, while the newer yokes are either small/medium or large/xl. Like several companies...

    Looking for a Barney’s pack frame. I suppose I’d be interested in a bag too if it’s a screaming deal, but right now I’m really just budgeted for a frame. Let me know if you’ve got one!

    Black Diamond Mega Light - poly version

    With all the talk about the silpoly shelters, it looks like Black Diamond is in the game - at least sort of. The updated Mega Light pyramid tent has been out for a while and it's made with what appears to be a sil/PU polyester fabric - something with silicone on one side and polyurethane on the...

    Cheap tipi option - Peregrine Boreal

    Looking at a foreign-made (I know, I know) tipi tent and am curious about this one - Peregrine Boreal HT Floorless tent. The specs seem decent. Not sil/sil nylon but I wouldn't expect that for the price. Comes with a pole, made with a waterproof a YKK zipper. Anyone here know anything about this...

    How old of a used tent would you buy

    I know that the waterproofing and fabrics in tents with PU coatings is vulnerable to breakdown over time. Assuming a tent has no signs of hydrolysis- no peeling, no odors - would you feel comfortable counting on a 15 or 20 year old tent to keep you dry? Sometimes I see a deal on a tent locally...

    Tent with a view - something you can leave open in the rain

    When I was a kid I camped in a-frame tents that had rain flies that extended out over the tent inner without touching the ground. Because of this you had great ventilation and could even look outside without getting wet. Nowadays it seems like every tent has a vestibule that extends to the...

    Hydrostatic head

    Do hydrostatic head measurements factor into your purchase decisions? I know some shelters have very high HH ratings, upwards of 5000mm. I've often heard that 1200 or 1500mm is the minimum to be considered waterproof. But I recently saw a Eureka tent that had a hydrostatic head rating of 800mm...

    Four season floored tent vs mid-style shelter

    I know some of you guys use both pyramid-style shelters like the SO Cimarron as well as more traditional four season tents like those made by Hilleberg. For those of you who own and use both, what factors will make you choose one over the other? I think it's interesting that floorless is all the...

    Peregrine tents/shelters

    Anyone familiar with the Peregrine brand? They have a line of tents that includes a floorless pyramid-type shelter and they also sell a titanium stove. I'm wondering if this is Chinese alibaba-type stuff. I know that not all Chinese stuff is bad, but I also know that some of it really is.

    Silpoly for shelters

    I have seen that a few manufacturers have switched some production over from silnylon to silpoly (Six Moon Designs, Black Diamond). It sounds like the main tradeoff is reduced strength with the silpoly but also reduced stretching/sagging. Silpoly isn't exactly new, so it's not like shelter...

    Max weight rifle with a Kifaru gun bearer

    Thinking about trying a universal Kifaru gun bearer setup on my Seek Outside pack. Seems like the gun bearer is obviously going to be more comfortable with a lightweight rifle. Those of you with a lot of experience with the gun bearer - have you found that there's a certain weight at which the...
