Skip the Tent in Summer!

Brilliant for fast packing in summer. To keep the bugs away from your body, place items like shoes, a pack, a pile of clothes, a book around the inside 4 corners, rather than just tucking the net under your sleeping pad. It gives you more comfy spaciousness, too. I've hung it in the open (treeless area) by using 2 hiking poles with a string between them. It's low, but it's workable when the environs don't easily suit hanging it.

A Decade or More of Good Use

I've got a couple of these Internationales. Don't ask me how it happened, but I do seem to travel a lot and do love them that much, I guess! Been using it over 10 years. Consistently solid performance around the world. Below about -20C, it does get tricky to light, as fuel thickens. Fair enough. Need for cleaning and maintenance has been almost nil.

Favourite winter hiker glove!

Used the Prism gloves for the Yukon Arctic Ultra in 2016 and they were my daily wear during a solo winter subarctic thru-hike of 850km in 2017. Great in temps down to about -15C or -20C whilst hiking. Lower than that, I'd put a mitt over them. Really robust, dry quickly if sweated in and stay warm when wet.

Awesome design and style

This new style sleeping mat has proved its worth. It's different but don't let that put you off - it's comfortable , lightweight and you don't roll off the edges. Definitely worth the investment. I've got the tapered version but if you like a bit more space down by your feet then this is the one for you.
