Toaks Wood Burning Stove

Comparing to other wood burning systems I used in the past, the Toaks version impressed me the most. I believe it to have something to do with the height of the burn chamber. Boy, this sucker can put out some flame without anything on top, then add the pot and it puts all the heat to the right places. The design does not allow too much flame to escape around the outside of the pot; this maximizes heat efficiency.

Ti Deuce of Spades (Backpacking Trowel)

The Tentlab Deuce of Spades is a small tool made out of titanium. The purpose of this device is to dig cat-holes in the backcountry for going poop. This trowel can be used for both hiking and backpacking. It is so light and small, that you can literally carry it in a small pocket.

Tyvek Suit Into (Cheap and Light) Rain Jacket

After wearing this in every natural element-- shy of a snow storm-- I never once experienced that 'clammy feeling' you dread after wearing traditional gear.

Tyvek also dries fast when completely saturated with water. It also does not feel heavy when wet. Your body heat should do a good job of keeping the material dry to the touch on the inside.

In really heavy rains you can expect to get damp like most expensive gear. For this reason I will continue to bring my Poncho during the wet season.

During high winds the material does a great job at keeping me warm by keeping the wind out. Even out performing my $500+ jackets. It also dries out quickly with a light breeze.

(Hiking Umbrella Test) Chrome Dome vs Sea to Summit

Carrying a hiking umbrella does add more weight to a backpack, but I feel the pros outweigh the cons. You now pack a lightweight windbreaker, replacing that bulky rain jacket. Portable shade, provides sun protection and even extra weather protection under your ultralight tarp. Protecting your camera from the sun or bad weather; while taking a photograph.
