In my last update I mentioned a possible hypothesis that because of the larger diameter of the Pika 1L Teapot, it would boil water faster than vessels with smaller diameters. Please click on the link HERE to see how my testing went and my final thoughts on this gear.
Intro into a winter hammock hang!
Ever wonder what a “hammock hang” is all about? How about a WINTER hammock hang? Well, us hardcore hammock campers do just that come winter time. We don’t really have a camping “season” so to speak. Many of us will sleep outside in our properly insulated hammocks regardless of the weather! To read about our North East Hammock Hangers Association 2020 Winter Hammock Hang, click HERE
My initial impressions concerning the MSR Pika 1L Teapot surround how light and small it is. It seems a great way to boil or heat water for backpacking meals and hot beverages. Concerning it’s ACTUAL weight compared to the published weight, it actually measured .2oz/4gr lighter than the published weight! For full review click HERE
After using the GSI Outdoors Microlite 720 Flip and 500 Twist bottles extensively for a couple months, I was able to assess their strong and weak points well. I will say this, there were not many weak points! Read HERE for the full review and updates.
Update after a month of extensive use
I have now used the Olight H1R Nova Headlamp for over a month and I remain super impressed. Click this LINK for full update and pictures of use.
