Re: One item for BMan 2014 a day

Good one Fishy. Really like the glasses and the best part is if you go on their site they include a "dud rate" on their products.

Re: One item for BMan 2014 a day

I've had really good results fixing Playafied tent zippers (and North Pole Shade zippers) with White Lightning Clean Ride wax lube. Patsh, the bottles look like they have a pretty controlled flow, do you just use the brush to spread it or is it better to actually apply with the brush? Also what see...

Re: One item for BMan 2014 a day

Thank you AntiM for your post, somewhere along the line, about using a Harbor Freight, I think, mini greenhouse for a pantry. When I came upon one a family member was getting rid of I snatched it up today knowing what it would be perfect for.

Re: One item for BMan 2014 a day

Very cool and thanks a lot. Backpacking mentality, always a struggle for me who wants it all and the kitchen sink. I like the refinement and simplicity. Sadly not my natural state but what I need to balance that frickin heavy sink.

Thanks Elorrum, when I first saw your post and pics I got to the Maxipedition site and saw their outer containers. Your post was so together I thought it was packaged as one unit rather than individual pieces. Did you get the Condor holder? I like the way you have put it together simplifies and ligh...

Re: How Many Virgins Do Their Research???

Being a first timer I have done research on top of research, reading and re reading. I can say until I read the Q & A thread from back to front I did not understand the snarkiness towards "virgin/burgin" questions. What was clear from reading that large number of threads over many years is that it w...

Re: Freezing water bottles

Hi, new person here. I've read that you can put the blue ice packs back into a cooler with dry ice and they will refreeze, would this work with soda bottles of water or is that too much mass?
