Re: Megamid Lite with Custom Bug Screen Mod Idea

You would probably have to add a narrow piece of nylon to attach to the velcro, but I don't see why it wouldn't work if you do that. Steve

Re: Bear Country

Although we have bears around here, they aren't a big problem. But in bear country, you just need the lightest canister you can find. Steve

Re: Bug Bivy?

We have mosquito head nets on the site, as well as the A-16 bug bivy, and the Six Moon Designs Serenity Net Tent and Haven Net Tent. I went "cowboy camping" a couple of times this year and just took a square yard of netting as backup. Steve

Re: What products should we add at Only The Lightest?

I'd like to see you carry raw fabric and other necessities (zippers, etc) as well as perhaps some patterns customers could access to craft their own gear. Backpacking with ultralight stuff rocks. Backpacking with ultralight stuff you make yourself is the definition of nirvana. Home made gear is gre...

Re: Tarp Shelter Help

I think for one person the Six Moon Designs Wild Oasis is very under rated. It seems like the Gatewood Cape gets all the chatter, but if you're not going to use the Gatewood as your primary rain poncho, the Wild Oasis might make sense. It is simple, enclosed, has bug netting and ventilation all arou...

Re: Kilt in the heat, teflon spray, NZ in Feb, crocs, bivvy/

We have a lot of information on gear repair and maintenance in our videos #61 and 64. Bivies and tents each have their own advantages. A light bivy like our Equinox UL bivy is good to keep your bag dry. By the time you add a bivy to your tarp you usually are at the weight of a light tent. Wearing cr...

Re: Mountain House in Ziplock Bags

If you don't use the Mountain House bags, you'll probably want to use a pot. With the single meals you don't save much weight by re-packaging. With the double meal servings, you save more. Steve
