Quilts don't really require a pad any more than sleeping bags do. In most sleeping bags, the insulation beneath you in compressed so much it doesn't provide much warmth, so a pad does a lot to keep...

I have an Enlightened quilt and I absolutely adore it. It's my favorite piece of camping gear, bar none. Quilts do have their limitations, but I think their advantages far outweigh them, at least...

I've used a Quarter Dome for about five years, it easily has at least 100 nights in it, probably closer to 200, and it's just starting to show a bit of wear. It's an entirely different model than the...

Picking locks isn't easy, it's a skill that takes a lot of time to develop, and picking the sorts of locks used in most modern bike locks is really difficult. I'm pretty decent with a pin tumbler...

I've had two Exped air mattresses (the old synmats, not the new hyperlight) that have had baffles de-laminate. Both times it happened while inflating the pad, and both times they still held air...

I can't speak to the jacket, but I have a pair of the A2B pants that are awesome. I've never had a pair of pants that move so well.

This is well outside the realm of this thread, but I'm sure you want to talk about your snazzy new custom bike. How exactly does that work? Does that wood platform lift up?

You've clearly never seen a pair of Ergon pedals (https://www.rei.com/product/830494/ergon-pc2-pedals). They're wide, grippy and extremely supportive; they're great pedals-if you close your eyes. I...

I think the answer you're looking for is front racks are niche items, made by a small number of companies, most catering to the high end market.

Location and conditions really make a huge difference in the amount of gear I'd take with me for a 'just in case' scenario. In general, I try to keep enough gear to survive a night out, even if it...

You don't really give a temperature range, but in my experience a four season tent is rated for winter use because it's better equipped to deal with high winds and snow load, not because it's warmer....

I think this thread is very telling-they're great tires, for some purposes. They're light, cheap and roll really well, but the appearance is questionable, and they are not as durable as other tires....

The Ergon pedals feel really nice, but are powerfully ugly. Grippy like a skateboard deck, not like a meat tenderizer, so less danger of harm to ones shin. Plus, built in reflectors. I have a pair on...

I have a tendency to use a Condor MA64 as a handlebar bag. It's just big enough for my wallet, cell phone, keys, light jacket and a snack or two. Hooks easily to my bars, secure, and unhooks just as...

Arc'teryx gets way more credit than they deserve. They make nice products (I really like their A2B pants), but they tend to expensive, even when compared to competitors. And you have to support...

In all my years of using them, I've broken one. I was using it to hammer in a tent peg. Don't do that and you'll probably be fine.

I have one, and love it. Not only is it a fraction of the weight of a bear bag, but it's volume also reduces as you eat your food.

I'm also pretty well convinced no-one ever actually hangs a bear...
