  1. Hey Not a Chance, would you share how you packed your GG Nightlight in the Pa’lante? Folded in 1/3’s flat against the back, or a cylinder around the interior of the pack with everything inside? I’ve got a similar kit as yours here, but I’m wondering how the pack’s going to fit longer food + water carries using the nightlight pad.


  2. Hi! Great site! Could you please tell us a bit about your experience with the s2s poncho-tarp? I’m thinking about getting one myself and I can’t find much material on it on the web. What do you think are good conditions for it?


    1. I use it on my desert hikes because weather is usually good. When it did shit storm I stayed warm and dry, even if I felt a lil précip on my face. It’s very claustrophobic if you have to pitch it in a storm, I had to army crawl on my belly to get into it once, I had to pitch it real low on a windy windy ridge. If you’re a small person, it’ll be fine. I don’t like how the material sags when it gets wet, I prefer cuben fiber for that reason, but it’s way more expensive!
