    Early in this thread the use of oven bags was mentioned and pretty much dismissed as a hassle given the lack of closure. However I see that self adhesive closures are commonly available on oven bags....

    I agree the so called no odor bag is a worthwhile addition, I've had bears in camp a couple times and my take is they go for the strongest and most desirable scents. Case in point was at Blackburn...

    I would imagine a lot of people are like me, fascinated by your trips but dont feel like there is much I can say that is germane. You are literally at another level both in terms of trip length and...

    Not scared of the dark but I have heard a few noises that raised the hair on the back of my neck. Describing one noise to others I was told a bobcat sounds like that. Not something I want to hear...

    Bottom with the idea that the strap tends to keep the pole attached to your wrist. From the top is a more direct path to slip off your hand. But I'd wager in those situations where you might lose...

    BTW, I would advice caution with the link in my post above, its has that too good to be true feel to the website. I see there are many offerings of this general type, its not a new idea, so just be...

    This has a few issues like weighing 920grams but I think the concept could be developed, I sure like the height.

    I'm with you, but I can see how a CSUL1 would for example be quite a bit less claustrophobic than a FlyCreek, the CS side entrance gives you the ability in nice weather to alleviate the tent...

    It can survive multiple washings with detergents so the amount you are talking about is so miniscule any dissolved by your action is not harmful and is further diluted by the water. My guess is once...

    No I got mine at a local non chain store which was an odd one- a farm store in a city without a huge amount of farm land. Anyway thats Bowens in Annapolis.

    Seems like I have to post this every year as people dont do serious research when they want to solve a problem.
